Playlist 20.02.09

Stuart Bailie | 13:06 UK time, Sunday, 22 February 2009

Ciaran and Chris from Captain Kennedy came in on Friday night to play an acousic session live on air. These can be jittery occasions but perversely,the chaps elected to play a couple of brand new songs - one of which had not even been heard by all the band members. They played them well and once more I was taken by Ciaran's voice - battered, winsome and tender. Hank Williams once said that "you got to have smelt a lot of mule manure before you can sing like a hillbilly" and I wonder what was in the air when this young guy from Lurgan got his style together.
