JUNE 🔎*NEW MONTHLY MARKER* – Grumpy O Sheep – Fox Hunter 🦊

Looking for something to dance to, to help brighten the world and lift spirits? Look no further! Our new Monthly Marker is Fox Hunter by Grumpy O Sheep! This song is a beautifully peated and powerful Irish folk tune, spiced up by some amazing southern European influences, which will have you on your feet in no time! 👣

Grumpy O Sheep is a duo originally from the Belfort region. They came together in 2017 and have played a year throughout the East of France before rocking the entire country all through 2019! In the fall of last year, they completed their first album “East of Talisker” from which we have taken this month’s Marker. 🐑

Please enjoy “Fox Hunter” all through June and show the band your love! 🥰

Monthly Marker April 2020: Alasdair Fraser’s Fiddle World

Cover: Alasdair Fraser-Dawn Dance

🤩 New Monthly Marker!

Alasdair Fraser’s Fiddle World – Free Rein 🥰

In these trying times of quarantine and social distancing we could all use a little free rein, to let life take us where it needs to go, so we thought we would give you all some of that throughout the month of April! Alasdair Fraser’s Free Rein, taken from his 1995 album Dawn Dance, uses some very traditional but fresh sounding fiddle tunes to pick you up and get you dancing through your livingroom! 👣

Alasdair Fraser is one of the greatest carriers of the Scottish fiddle music tradition, a fiddler whose warmly expressive playing, mastery of his instrument and deep understanding of his native music as a venerable and continually evolving art is an inspiration to generations of musicians on both sides of the Atlantic. For this song in particular and the album as a whole Alasdair teamed up with a whole host of highly skilled and talented musicians, and that level of experience resonates through the entire song. 🎶

So join us this month, turn up the volume on your stereo, and come dance with us like nobody is watching to the tunes of Free Rein! The song will be played five to six times a day every day, all through April! 😍

Monthly Marker February 2020: Vilsevind

Cover: Vilsevind-dag o natt

As the first month of the year has finished we are happily moving forward towards our Fantasy Awards 2019/20 (FB) event. One of the ways that we mark the passing of time is through our Monthly Marker, and the first of February means that it’s time to switch again!

This month, staying in Swedish sounds, we chose Tusentals Färdas by Vilsevind – Swedish Folk (FB)! This song, which starts out a capella, reminiscent of last months Häggsjön, quickly evolves to create a very joyful, danceable song, which invites you to take a journey with the band! The song is taken from Vilsenvind’s latest album “dag o natt”, of which every song has been added to our playlists, both the one we broadcast as our radio-stream as well as our Spotify playlist!

Speaking of last months marker, with our switch to the new server we encountered some technical difficulties, which led to a few days of missed Monthly Markers. Since we want to give everyone equal promotion we decided that this wasn’t fair, so we will continue playing Triakel’s Häggsjön throughout February as well, thereby giving this month a bit of a Swedish duet theme 😉

Enjoy both songs, five to six times a day, al through February!
