Sheer Isolation - with Rosie Upton (24/10/21)

To mark the week when The Village Pump in Trowbridge re-opens for live events, we talk to local folk singer and one of the Pump's restoration volunteers, Rosie Upton, who's been a key player in the success of the venue for five decades. She tells us what the folk club was like in the seventies, how it was reborn nearly 20 years ago, and how the Pump is diversifying to include a wider range of musical styles, while keeping live folk and acoustic performance at its core.

Our tunes this week include Wiltshire's very own Fly Yeti Fly, who are launching a new album in December, and Rosie picks two of her favourite folk club attendees; Sally Ironmonger and Brian Carter. In the news, we discuss the skills shortage that's currently affecting the music industry, with many touring crews and stage productions struggling to find the right staff after the usual teams were forced to find alternative jobs during lockdown.

Sheer Isolation - with Sumita Majumdar (17/10/21)

Living with autism can be frustrating for yourself and the people around you, especially when young children are involved. This week's guest has played a crucial role in increasing understanding and tolerance of autistic behaviours in schools across the UK. Swindon artist, Sumita Majumdar, is part of the team behind Pablo; a CBeebies series where the lead character shows how his inner-world manifests into real-life behaviour. Sumita has gone on to research autistic traits and coping mechanisms further, and is hoping to create new interactive projects which will allow more people to see things from an autistic perspective.

Our tracks are provided by Gloucestershire's Chloe Foy, who is currently touring the West's venues, and Sumita picks a tune by another promoter of autism awareness; Donna Williams. We also talk about how more venues are bringing back regular music nights, and the confusion over different Covid passport requirements between Cardiff and Bristol's nightclubs.

Sheer Isolation - Jonathan Dean (Innox Mills) (10/10/21)

On Sheer Isolation this week we're joined by property developer, Jonathan Dean. He owns the Innox Mills in Trowbridge - a former sausage factory which is currently a derelict site that sits between the town centre and the train station. He tells us his ambition to bring a 'little piece of Camden' to Wiltshire by including in his redevelopment plans dedicated studios and workshop spaces for local artists, and hopes to include new venues to promote the area's music scene.

Our tunes this week are courtesy of Devon duo, Sound of the Sirens, and Jonathan's choice is a Wiltshire based songwriter, Ben Borrill, who recently performed at the Innox Mill market. In news, we congratulate Wiltshire supergroup, The Lost Trades, on reaching the Top 40 of the UK Folk Chart, and we send our best wishes to last week's guest, Alan Pettifer, who was taken ill shortly after talking to us.
