Ali & Kris came to play for us.

Roots And Shoots Monday 30th September.....

Up and coming duo, Ali and Kris, came into the studio for this show and treated us to some lovely versions of songs that they love. They have'nt been performing together for a year yet and already they're creating a stir in the world of open mic sessions around the west country. And deservedly so with Ali's beautiful vocals coupled with a 'stage' presence to die for and ably backed by some vertuoso guitar playing from Kris.

They played the following:

The Haystack Incident;

Isn't She Lovely:
Foggy Dew;
Fields Of Gold.

Also I received some blues tracks from listener and friend, Dave Howell, by email and, after some technical challenges for techno-phobe me, we got a couple on air. They were:

Mother Earth..Memphis Slim from a CD put together by Martin Scorsese

19 Years Old..Muddy Waters..The Anthology

In addition I played a couple of tracks from Mali, donated by Ilkamedia, who have these albums for sale. The tracks were:

Diack So..Vieux Farka Toure..Mon Pays

The One I Love Is Gone..The Secret Sisters..The Secret Sisters
