Thanks so much to Kerry Devine for playing Alone in Glasgow on the folk show on BBC Radio Cambridgeshire last night!As you can see, I was in good company – it’s a lovely and strange feeling seeing my own name listed alongside Eliza Carthy, Polly Paulusma Music, and Peggy Seeger. If you missed it, you can listen back here: www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/p09bg2m7Or on the BBC Sounds app. I’m at about 45 minutes in, but I highly recommend putting on the whole show to accompany your lazy Easter Monday. Kerry chooses great music, and has a knack for compiling a varied playlist.

Thank you to everyone who has listened to Alone in Glasgow, and for all of the lovely comments and messages!Do check out the song here if you haven’t already done so: www.annahester.bandcamp.com (or on any major streaming platform) I thought I’d tell you a bit more about the song. This is one of my postcard songs, written in response to a postcard my friend Louis sent me. Louis is an artist and a singer-songwriter. We met on an Arvon songwriting retreat, where we and several other lucky people were tutored by the amazing Kathryn Williams and Samantha Parton (samanthaparton.bandcamp.com). Shortly after the course, I started the postcard project, and Louis’ postcard was one of the first ones I received. I misplaced it for a few days, but then I found it, and wrote the song. The phrase ‘alone in Glasgow’ was in Louis’ original message, and that ‘o’ rhyme was the catalyst for the chorus. Check out Louis’ artwork here: www.louisbennettart.co.ukAnd listen to his songs here: louisbennett.bandcamp.com/album/not-my-fault-alright
