The English singer June Tabor has, in her remarkably unique recordings, captured the imagination of audiences far beyond the folk scene. Latterly, she's worked with pianist Huw Warren and saxophonist Iain Ballamy in Quercus. Ahead of that trio's appearance in Cork next weekend, we air a selection by Tabor (see video). Also coming our way this Saturday, a little Danish folk from singer Julie Hjetland; part of a string quartet by Matyas Seiber; Miles Davis, and the title track of "Someday My Prince Will Come"; Indonesian music courtesy of flute-player Ujang Suryana; Irish singer-songwriter Roesy; movie music by Nico Muhly; Tommy Hayes and Ian Leslie, almost home; "Lady In Autumn" Lady Day; more from this week's featured ensemble Sonamus; and Julian Lloyd Webber with Catrin Finch.
