Stewart Fenwick will be speaking to the legendary Sydney Devine this Sunday on Celtic Country from 12 – 2pm.
Sydney has a new album out this week, Skiffle Country.
The original American Skiffle players were travelling journeymen with simple acoustic instruments who would play for thier supper with a tea chest for bass, spoons or a washboard for perucssion and an old guitar for the melody. In the 50’s and 60’s the British Skiffle boom adopted the simplicity of this good time music and encouraged everyone that they too could join in and have a go. Sydney Devine has drawn on some of his earlier Skiffle influences for this, his first ever collection of Skiffle Country songs.
Listen in to Stewart Fenwick’s Celtic Country Sunday from 12 – 2pm.
