with Folk on 2 Jim's guests tonight are one of Ireland's newest and most exciting bands -
Dervish. Formed two years ago, this Sligo-based band so impressed Jim when he met them at last summer's
Cambridge Folk Festival that he's been trying to arrange a studio session with them ever since.
In the second of five programmes, singer/ songwriter Dave Burland visits the Four Fools Club in Redditch, Worcestershire. It hosts weekly singarounds, musical evenings and a summer festival, and above all it is about a love of song. With local singer/songwriter
Colin Pitts and a rising star of the folk scene, Eliza Carthy.
Malcolm Taylor , librarian of the English Folk Dance and Song Society, presents the last of four programmes profiling collectors of traditions throughout the UK. Tom McKean is unique among folk collectors in Britain in that he is usually paid for collecting material, thanks to his residency with Banff District Council in north east Scotland. A musician in his own right, from the rich folk tradition of America, the programme finds him recording everything from poems and stories to classic ballads.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
