In the Footsteps of Ewan MacColl

Cast Second Space (unallocated)

Tue 16 May


Expect to be entertained and enlightened by songs of joy, love, hardship and humour.

Bob Fox, Jez Lowe and Julie Matthews are three of the most popular, hard-working and enduring singers on the UK folk and acoustic music circuit, well-loved and respected by audiences and colleagues alike.


They come together to perform a concert of songs and stories commissioned by BBC Radio 2 for the first “new” Radio Ballads since the original, ground-breaking programmes of the 50s and 60s by Ewan MacColl, Peggy Seeger and Charles Parker.


All three are consummate, engaging, multi-instrumental performers of meaningful songs and stories, whose skills have been honed by decades of live touring around the globe.
