Luke Plumb Interview - Part 1 (Mandolin, singing)

Episode 55 · June 24th, 2020 · 1 hr 1 min

About this Episode

The real deal. Part one of two. Incredible playing and great chat: the painters of ancient Egypt and the joy of playing in an orchestra; De Danaan, Planxty and Schubert; Martin Carthy and Nic Jones and the thrum of existential rhythm.

Truth be told, we don't have much to add to this show - it'll all in the tape. Next week: Shooglenifty and living in Scotland, the moments in a gig that a musician lives for, coming home to Australia and recording an album with Andy Irvine.

In this episode Luke plays:
Three jigs (un-named)
Three reels: McGreevey's, The Sweetheart and Miss McGuiness
Wrackabello (from the playing of Martin Carthy)
