Yvonne Lyon says “Everything’s Fine”

Celtic Fusion on 100.8 Revival FM on Tuesday nights from 8.00pm will feature Yvonne Lyon’s new single Everything’s Fine which is an upbeat, feel-good track taken from her eighth solo studio album Metanoia. Also featured on the single are the songs Where The Poor Find Gold and Hope.

A regular favourite at Yvonne’s gigs, Everything’s Fine tells the story of an unexpected moment of beauty in an otherwise mundane daily commute. Fusing Yvonne’s melodic sensibility and balanced poetic nuance, the song is enhanced by freshness in the Nashville-influenced Americana vibe of her band.

Endearingly positive and uniquely memorable, Everything’s Fine showcases an artist who continues to go from strength to strength.

Yvonne is among the UK’s brightest and best emerging singer/songwriters. Having supported Eddi Reader throughout the UK, performed with Beth Nielsen Chapman and co-written with Boo Hewerdine, she continues to establish herself as an artist of considerable significance.

Yvonne began 2018 opening for Dougie MacLean at Celtic Connections 2018. Her emotive performances have consistently drawn and stirred audiences and she has shared the stage with Patti Griffin, Karine Polwart, Karen Matheson, Luka Bloom, Steve Forbert, IONA and Juliet Turner.

The Turn the Beat Around ‘Album of the Month’ for August is the current offering from Glasgow band, Belle and Sebastian with How to solve our human problems.

How To Solve Our Human Problems is an album containing 15 new songs with Ian Arbuckle featuring tracks each week on Turn The Beat Around on 100.8 Revival FM on Wednesday nights from 8.00-10.00pm, and Saturday afternoons 3.00-5.00pm plus Catch Up anytime.

Gospel Blues Train: Paul Thorn interview

The Gospel Blues Train, presented and produced by musician Lins Honeyman, features this week an exclusive interview with Mississippi-raised bluesman Paul Thorn.

This follows the release of his most recent album ‘Don’t Let The Devil Ride’. 

Impressively employing the services of big name acts such as the McCrary Sisters, The Blind Boys of Alabama and New Orleans’ renowned Preservation Hall Jazz Band, ‘Don’t Let The Devil Ride’ sees the seasoned artist revisit his church roots with a collection of old gospel numbers that act as a perfect vehicle for his trademark earthy vocals and down home musical style.

Lins caught up with Paul to chat about the new album and his long and varied career.

The Gospel Blues Train with Lins Honeyman, Tuesday 31 July at 10.00-11.00pm plus Catch-Up anytime.  The Gospel Blues Train is also scheduled on Fridays at 8.00pm and Saturdays at 7.00pm.
