In this series of revealing interviews, Cat tells tales about influential musicians who have been at the heart of the industry for many years and have moulded and inspired others to follow in their footsteps. Taking a friendly and informal approach, these fresh and relaxed conversations are the sort of chat overheard in the backstage bar about life and music...and occasionally even exposing a few secrets.

More of Allison Moorer please!

Grammy nominated alternative country singer, #AllisonMoorer, was performing at #CambridgeFolkFestival when I caught up with her and chatted about her forthcoming album and what makes her tick.

episode 6: The one with Sharon Shannon

July 2007: One from the analogue vault.

Renegade Sharon.

From her stints with the Waterboys, it seems that just putting an accordion in Sharon Shannon's hands makes her happy. Luckily for the soft-spoken Sharon, others are just as happy when she picks it up.

episode 5: The one with Jim Moray

July 2004: One from the analogue vault!

Winner of both the Horizon Award for Best Newcomer and the Best Album Award for Sweet England at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards in 2004, Jim Moray is single-handedly turning folk music on its head. Taking traditional English songs he re-works them electronically to create some of the most powerful contemporary recordings in the last thirty years.
