The Songcircle



In a songcircle, songs are bandied back and forth. Perhaps over a fire. Each week on The Songcircle, we try to bounce artists' songs off one another in a similar way. Sometimes in service of a common theme or genre. Sometimes paying tribute to a beloved artist with rare recordings. Sometimes responding to events that impact us all. Always, we strive to present music both new and familiar in a fresh context. You might not love every song, but stay tuned - the next one might be a new favorite!

Jeff Rosenberg is a longtime KBOO DJ and contributor to the Music section of Willamette Week.

Songcircle 3/4/11 Interview with John Wesley Harding/Wesley Stace

program: 
The Songcircle
program date: 
Thu, 03/10/2011

 Singer-songwriter John Wesley Harding, a.k.a. author Wesley Stace, stopped by to discuss his new novel, Charles Jessold, Considered as a Murderer, about an early-20th-century opera composer whose career is cut short by a scandalous murder-suicide. Wes performed the folk ballad "Little Musgrave," which figures prominently in the novel's plot. He also shared two new tunes from his forthcoming, made-in-Portland album.

Following the approx. 50 minute interview is a brief snippet of British folk legend Nic Jones' "The Flandyke Shore"; Wes paid tribute to Jones on the great 1999 album, Trad Arr Jones, on which he first performed "Little Musgrave".
