Lins Honeyman: Penny Lyon on Gospel Blues Train

This Friday, 23 February from 8.00pm, The Gospel Blues Train with Lins Honeyman features an exclusive interview with Penny Lyon – lead singer with in-demand Gloucestershire band Out Of The Ashes. 

Pioneered by Penny and her husband Kevin Washburn, the band recently released their third album – the well-received ‘Fears, Secrets & Lies’ which featured guest appearances from the Blues Band’s Paul Jones and Human League’s Josh Cana, and their sound can be described as jazz, R&B and swing with gospel roots.

Through story and song, they aim to communicate something of the daily experiences Christians face as well as the hope that God has a plan for us all.

Lins caught up with Penny during their recent Scottish tour.

The Gospel Blues Train with Lins Honeyman, Friday 23 February 8.00-9.00pm; repeated Saturday 24 February 7.00pm; Tuesday 27 February 10.00pm and Catch Up anytime.
