The Music Café - 10/11/2010


Vic Galloway talks to Newton Faulkner and Jools Holland. An exclusive session from Brit-nominated singer-songwriter Newton Faulkner who is currently on a tour of the UK. Plus a chat about how his second album "Rebuilt By Humans" reflects his recovery from a badly broken wrist ... a recovery which involved a metal plate, 9 pins and time away from playing - a nightmare scenario for a guitarist about to record his new album! The legendary Jools Holland talks about the inspiration behind his latest album "Rockinghorse" and the various collaborations with, amongst others, Alison Moyet, David Sanborn, Ruby Turner and Allen Toussaint. As we approach Remembrance Sunday Vic discusses the kind of music soldiers listen to on the frontline with Major Fergus Luckyn-Malone and Lieutenant Tom Kennedy from the Black Watch. Is it heavy, aggressive music to get them psyched up or something calm and reflective to help them escape the horrors of war? Do the bagpipes still have an important role to play?
