There's dedication, and then there's dedication. Driving just shy of 90 miles from Anstruther to Barrhead, to do a live radio session in a ridiculous warm radio studio shows Eilidh Rose a.k.a. 18 year old singer songwriter Lidh has the latter. Crafter of fuzz folk tunes and inspired by the musical heritage that lives and breathes in Anstruther, she is also the owner of a fabulous voice and a penchant for writing cutesy lyrics. Fulfilling the usual 'session guest' duties, Lidh picked some music, chatted, and treated us to three live tracks, all of which you can revisit right here.
Bookending the show are tracks from CHVRCHES and Machines In Heaven, just two of the acts that played T in the Park last weekend. I go through some of the picks of the festival, with a unashamedly heavy slant on the T-Break stage. There's plenty to enjoy!
