SnC 081 – Wed 05 Sep 2007
A very different show this week just one artist in a 20 minute feature.Foy Vance made a memorable appearance at the Arts Centre in Norwich in the spring and wowed a sell-out crowd with his passionate singing and his alternating lyrical and percussive guitar style.I had the good fortune to be there and to talk with Foy, between sound-check and show-time, about his new album Hope which is released in Ireland this week. I hope you enjoy the variation of format this week – it gives an insight into the backstage life that is lived by rock and roll legends the world over! Yeah right!InterviewBe with me – from the album Hope and also a single, released in the UK on 24 September.Album Release, Ireland September 07 2007Tower Records, Dublin September 08Cyprus Avenue, Cork September 08Roisin Dubh, Galway September 09Dolans, Limerick September 10Spirit Store, Dundalk September 11Brel Bar, Glasgow September 14Fibbers, York September 16Norwich Arts Centre, Norwich September 18Glee Club Studio, Birmingham September 21Then further gigs throughout September in Oxfordshire, Peterborough, London.
