    The Unthanks: April 13th - 19th

    They have interpreted songs by Robert Wyatt and Antony & the Johnsons, a rousing brass band collaboration and captured the folk history of their native Northumbria.  Now The Unthanks, led by sisters Rachel and Becky, release a studio album that is folk tinged yet contemporary. A recent Dublin appearance was hailed as "magnificent". "Mount The Air" is our featured album. Hear it, along with their back catalogue – nightly at 10.

    Sinikka Langeland: April 20th - 26th

    Sinikka Langeland, a graduate of the University of Oslo, has studied piano, guitar and contemporary folksong. Since 1981, she's been especially interested in the kantele, or table harp. We'll hear original compositions from "The half-finished Heaven", her latest ECM release, all this week on BLUE.
