Hello everyone. The latest radio show, number 92, is now available for you to download. On this special show I have the great pleasure to speak with Guy Manning about his forthcoming release "Margaret's Children", a follow-up of sorts to his 2006 release "Anser's Tree".
Following the lives of 7 descendents of Margaret Montgomery, the album takes us on a journey through time, recounting the important moments in the lives of Margaret's descendants. These stories are enhanced with music that recall the times and places through which the characters evolve. A worthy follow-up to Anser's Tree, important moments from the last four hundred years are brilliantly examined, not in a didactic way, but strangely in a way that is also a reflection of our current worldwide situation.
Guy has some wonderful insights about this album, and I hope you like the interview... and the songs. About the songs: I only played three from the forthcoming release, a taster if you will, but I added songs from throughout his carreer (well from the albums I do own - I don't have all his CDs unfortunately). The release date is November 7th, and you can pre-order the album at Guy Manning's website.
