Sheer Isolation 37- with Michael Loader (17/01/21)

On this week’s Sheer Isolation we’re joined by Somerset storyteller, Michael Loader.

Representing yet another overlooked arm of the entertainment industry, Michael has spent more time in the last twelve months writing and researching for new projects because live events in care homes, schools and festivals have all been called off. He gives us a glimpse of his new, original tale, and tells a fascinating story about an arts exchange project which took him all the way to Bethlehem for a gig.

One of our tracks this week is connected to the friends Michael made on this journey… we play a tune from Palestinian artist Zaid Hilal. We also play a brand new track that was made closer to home by Devizes based blues artist, Jon Amor.
