Rogue Folk Club Artistic Director Steve Edge, in the studios of CiTR. Note the Manchester United cap!

Saturday June 20, 2020 - To mark Juneteenth I played a lot of new music from Africa, and quite a few songs about slavery and its effects. I finished the show with some Celtic music, a few songs for Father's Day, and a Midsummer flourish.
