May Day! May Day!

8:00am - 12:00pm

Some songs for the first of May, celebrating the great English traditions of this special day. Plus some interesting new music from Ontario's The Deep Dark Woods, Welsh singer The Gentle Good and his new project combining his native music with trad from Assam, some tasty Chinese folk rock from Manhu, and lots of great fiddlers and singers. Bookended with two kora masters, Toumani Diabate and Ballake Sissoko.
