TTBA Album of the Month

TTBA Album of the Month

The Turn The Beat Around programme Album of the Month for April 2019 is from Joanne Shaw Taylor, the English Midlands Black Country girl with the blues in her soul and has been steadily growing her reputation the old fashioned way, by getting out and playing.

In the latest round of a seemingly endless touring schedule she hit Edinburgh’s Queen’s Hall soon after the release of latest album ‘Reckless Heart’.

In blues guitarist terms ‘JST’ is a young kid on the block, but she already has a huge amount of experience and a love of doing things old school.

There’s no preamble, no consideration about making the right entrance or worrying about a stage show. It’s get on the stage, smile hello, plug in and go.

You will hear tracks from her latest CD album when Ian Arbuckle plays tracks from ‘Reckless Heart’ on Turn The Beat Around on 100.8 Revival FM on Wednesday evenings from 8.00pm and Saturday afternoon from 3.00pm.
