Sheer Isolation 37- with Gavin Osborn (24/01/21)

Bringing live music performances to people in our most remote villages, our guest on this week’s Sheer Isolation is Gavin Osborn from the Wiltshire Rural Music charity. In normal times, Gavin would be taking musicians on tour in mobile libraries across the county. This year his charity work has adapted to help the most isolated with care home gigs through Zoom and setting up a dial-a-musician scheme.

We also cover the news that Glastonbury Festival has once again been cancelled – what does that mean for the rest of the 2021 festival calendar. And, are musicians getting enough revenue from streaming? This week’s music includes an older tune from Bristol rock outfit, Thought Forms, and a double-feature live shanty from Street’s Nick Parker.
