Featured Programme – Max Roberts
The Folk Hour with Max Roberts features folk music in all it’s guises…..Acoustic music, Folk Rock, Folk Blues. and Americana. Folk music means different things to different people, it flows naturally from people’s lives, it is an inseparable mix of words and music, it’s music about life, it has been around since the earliest of times and still gives voice to the deep feelings and unspoken needs of our times, it relates to the human condition.
On The Folk Hour we like to promote local, up and coming artists and groups by featuring their music, promoting their gigs and when possible getting them to perform live in the studio on the show.
The Folk Hour also has a stage at local festivals.Previous guests that have performed on the show or been interviewed include the likes of Ralph McTell, Henry Priestman, Edwina Hayes, Carrie Martin, Katie Spencer, The Trials of Cato, Peter Knight (Steeleye Span] Charlie Dore, Martin Pierson, Dez Allenby, Phil Simpson, Hillbilly Troupe, Spare Hands, Hull Folk Collective, Eric Brace, Peter Cooper, Thom Jutz [Emmy nominee], Tom Mason, Mean Mary, and The Youg’uns, to name but a few.
