The International Americana Music Show (#1534)

Sir George Ivan Morrison is the opening artist on the show this week (TIAMS #1534).

The Northern Irish singer celebrated his 70th birthday on August 31st, and to mark the occasion I played a track from one of his most acclaimed albums, Veedon Fleece (album cover pictured).

The new single by Irishman, Glen Hansard follows, before an Australian band, Stevie And The Sleepers, who are new to the show, perform a song from their debut EP.

Other artists who haven't been featured on the program, before this week, are Ben Mastwyk and Megan Cooper, from Australia, and English singer, Martin Harley.

Canadian Zachary Lucky performs a cover of Guy Clark's Dublin Blues and the show closes with a track from another Canadian, Jenny Ritter, from her lauded new album, Raised By Wolves.
