Breakfast at Uproot Festival

Petroc Trelawny presents a special edition from BBC Radio Humberside as part of Radio 3's Uproot festival for Hull UK City of Culture 2017. With listener requests for music.

Petroc Trelawny presents a special Breakfast show from BBC Humberside as part of Radio 3's Uproot festival for Hull 2017. There will be listener requests for music and musicians associated with Hull, poetry from Philip Larkin and a visit to William Wilberforce's House.

This is the official start of Uproot, Radio 3's three-day festival celebrating the area's folk and roots heritage as well as its international cultural connections as part of the BBC's contribution to Hull UK City of Culture 2017. There are four concerts at Hull Truck Theatre from major world and folk artists, including Hull's folk royalty The Waterson Family Eliza Cathy's innovative Arms Wide Orchestra, special appearances from Yorkshire folk artists Fay Hield and Martin Simpson, plus concerts celebrating Hull's international links from the Warsaw Village Band and Sierra Leone's Refugee All Stars. Breakfast is live at BBC Humberside and on Hull Marina, there are special editions from Hull Truck Theatre of Free Thinking and In Tune, and the theme is reflected widely in other programming across the three days. The theme 'Uproot' is essentially a reflection on roots, how people relate to them in fast-changing times, and what happens when people are displaced from their roots.
