This week’s Folk Roots Radio features interviews with two artists who have produced wonderful new albums, Brenda McMorrow joins us to chat about her latest western folk meets Kirtan (Indian devotional music) album “My Heart Bows Down To You” and we talk to Ange Hardy, direct from Somerset England, about “Esteesee”, her great new album inspired by the life and work of English romantic poet, Samuel Taylor Coleridge. As usual we include a selection of the new music we’ve received and continue our on-going feature on the nominees for the 2015 Canadian Folk Music Awards. I really enjoyed putting this show together. I hope you enjoy it.
Ange Hardy has just released her latest album, “Esteesee” (pronounced Ess-Tee-See), an album inspired by the life and work of English romantic poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge (the S.T.C in the album’s title). It’s a fabulous album that really brings Coleridge to life. Ange joined us for a feature-length interview direct from her home in Somerset, England. Check out our review of the album HERE. Music: Ange Hardy “Esteesee”, “My Captain”, Might Is In The Mind” and “Along The Coleridge Way” (2015, Story Records).
Somerset, England based singer-songwriter Ange Hardy has just released “Esteesee” (2015, Story Records), a great new album of songs inspired by the life and work of English romantic poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge (21 October 1772 – 25 July 1834) – the ‘Esteesee’ in the title (pronounced Ess-Tee-See), or as he preferred to refer to himself S.T.C. A follow up to the critically-acclaimed “The Lament of the Black Sheep” (2014, Story Records), Esteesee finds Ange Hardy stretching herself by taking on specific source material but coming up trumps with a stellar set of wonderfully arranged songs.
