Blair Dunlop in session

Mark Radcliffe presents Radio 2's folk and acoustic show, live from Salford Quays.

This week Mark's studio session comes from singer, songwriter and guitarist Blair Dunlop. Blair, who's based in Derbyshire, was nominated for the 2012 BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award. Just one year later he scooped the Horizon Award for the 'best emerging artist' at the 2013 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards, thanks in no small part to his excellent debut album, Blight and Blossom.

Blair and some musical friends join Mark live in the BBC's Salford studios to play some music and talk about his musical heritage, inspirations, and aspirations.
