    The Blue of the Night with Carl Corcoran

    June 1 - 7: Catalan soprano Montserrat Figueras, who recently died of cancer aged 69, was a specialist in baroque and earlier music. Her distinctive vocal style defined the ensembles she co-founded with husband, Jordi Savall. Fronting ensembles such as Hespèrion XX (which became Hespèrion XXI) and La Capella Reial de Catalunya, Montserrat's voice became synonymous with Spanish early music and with the laments and legends of Catalan folk-song. Carl and Eamonn have chosen Figueras as this week’s Blue Tunes Recommends and each night feature tracks from her extensive catalogue - on the Blue nightly at 10.

    Jackson C. Frank: April 14th - 20th

    The American singer/songwriter Jackson C. Frank was seriously injured as a child, in a school fire that claimed the lives of most of his classmates. He is best known for writing "Blues Run The Game", a song that's been covered by Simon & Garfunkel, Bert Jansch, Eddi Reader, John Renbourn and Frank's one-time girlfriend, Sandy Denny. He, himself, recorded just one album in his lifetime, the eponymous "Jackson C. Frank", produced by Frank's friend Paul Simon, in London. This week, we feature rarities from the newly-issued “Fixin’ To Die”: home and reel-to-reel recordings made during the 1960s and 1970s. Join Ellen and Eamonn to hear a selection each night this week, from 10pm...
