Wednesday - Verity Sharp

A varied selection of music.

Joyful spontaneity from Leveret - Rob Harbron (concertina), Sam Sweeny (fiddle) and Andy Cutting (melodeon) - as they play live in the Late Junction studio and weave their magic around traditional tunes. Plus Hugh Tracey's recordings from Malawi, and Matthew Bourne and Franck Vigroux's reimagining of tracks from Kraftwerk's 1975 album, Radio-Activity.
