Katriona Gilmore

Katriona Gilmore and Jamie Roberts

Katriona Gilmore has won the Acoustic/Folk section of Soundcloud’s UK Songwriting Contest with her song ‘Doctor James’. She and Jamie Roberts played at Furness Tradition in 2011.

The judges said “This year’s Acoustic / Folk winner is sung in a traditional folk style by singer, songwriter, guitarist and violinist Katriona Gilmore from Knebworth in Hertfordshire. Katriona is one half of the folk duo Gilmore & Roberts who are becoming well known on the British folk scene. This winning song is an unusual, original and very memorable composition with a catchy hook and a lyrical twist at the end which make it a worthy winner in this year’s acoustic/folk category.”

Topic Records

Excellent news, especially for those of us who remember LPs and sleeve notes; Topic Records are to publish digital booklets for each album available for digital download. Topic has always had the underlying philosophy of making traditional-based music as widely available as possible.

In January 2013, 84 archive albums will be available to download complete with new digital booklets. Each month throughout the year Topic intends to publish further ‘currently out of print’ albums from their archive and make available digital booklets for all current releases, artist by artist, as well as new ‘themed’ digital collections. Currently, digital delivery all too often separates the audio recording from all artwork, documentation and sleeve-notes. The plan at Topic is to restore and include all of the information that originally accompanied the vinyl release and wherever possible add photographs and ephemera from their archive.

Music in Furness on the BBC

Listen to reporter Jennie Dennet’s programme about music in Furness; it features the Furness Tradition Tuesday session at the Hope & Anchor with Les Ord, Mike Willoughby, Alan Garforth, Gordon Jones, and the gang. Then a bit about the Cardboard Harp project with Mary Dunsford, which arose out of this year’s FT Festival. Other local stuff with open mic sessions, South Lakes Ukelele Orchestra, UVHS Wind Band, John Hall and the Octopus collective. It includes an interview with James Taylor who was part of our Freebandreel project, and can be seen performing in the video of the Winter Gathering.

What a great place Furness is for music, especially Ulverston.
