Thursday - Mara Carlyle

Mara Carlyle announces the last few names appearing on the Late Junction stage at Latitude 2014, plus music on disc from 1960s Cambodia and Indian sarod master Shivkumar Sharma.

Singer-songwriter and new member of the Late Junction presenter team, Mara Carlyle announces more exclusive details of the Late Junction line-up at the Latitude Festival in July. Plus she's joined for a very special live studio performance by one of this year's artists, and there's music on disc from 1960s Cambodia and Indian sarod master Shivkumar Sharma.

Mara Carlyle is a British singer, songwriter and arranger whose sound combines an eclectic range of influences, including choral music, jazz, bluegrass, electronica and R&B. Her musical collaborators have included Matthew Herbert, Willy Mason, MF DOOM and the London Contemporary Orchestra. She is known for reworking songs by classical composers from John Dowland to Benjamin Britten.

Late Junction - BBC Radio 3's late-night exploration of musical wonders and curiosities from across time and space - returns to Latitude for a fourth consecutive year. Filling the woods with captivating sounds, Late Junction presenter Max Reinhardt will host another hand-picked celebration of eclectic music in the intimate setting of The Lavish Lounge, with highlights to be broadcast during Late Junction on Radio 3 (22nd, 23rd and 24th July at 11pm).
