Hello GoodBye Show info – Saturday 23rd April 2011

Brixton and Bristol are both represented in equal measure this afternoon on Hello GoodBye, from the West Country we have Siddy Bennett and from South East London The No Frills Band.

The South London Press recently described The No Frills Band as ‘ramshackle folksy Brixtonites’, the group play Irish, Welsh, English and Scottish tunes, American old time, bluegrass and western swing, Greek stuff, Turkish stuff, French tunes, Yiddish tunes, East European tunes and Scandinavian tunes, and some old country songs.

Siddy Bennett is poignant, poetic and often lyrically compared to the greats of Laura Marling and Sandy Denny. Her delivery, assured with the musicianship of her exceptional (violin included) band, ranges from upbeat, raucous, cider-infused festival dance music to epic, thought provoking folk ballads.

Tune in between noon and 1.30pm on 104.4 FM in Central London or on-line via: www.resonancefm.com
