The video was shot in our house by my videographer husband Mick Paulusma, whose cult indie feature film ‘Clear Lake’ starring Roddy Piper continues to grow an underground following since the actor’s death in 2015.
I spoke to Mark Radcliffe for the BBC Radio 2 Folk Show on Wed 5 May about my new album ‘Invisible Music: folk songs that influenced Angela Carter’.
He played three tracks from the record, including Kathryn Williams‘ beautiful reading from Carter’s ‘The Bloody Chamber’.
Listen at around 25 mins for my part, but the whole show is fantastic.
Well, this is it.
‘Invisible Music: folk songs that influenced Angela Carter’ flies the nest today.
The Guardian/Observer **** – a ‘vibrant, insightful tribute’
BBC Radio 2 Folk Show – ‘intoxicating…. an impressive album that really deserves to be heard’
Folk Radio UK – ‘both a terrific traditional folk album and a fascinating insight into Carter’s creative process’
Shire Folk ‘Be in no doubt, Invisible Music is one of the landmark releases of the year, in this or any other genre’
Radio: I’ll be talking with Mark Radcliffe on the BBC Radio 2 Folk Show about the record on Wed 5 May between 9-10pm: please do tune in.
