Arts Wholed Episode 5
29:56In Episode 5 of Arts Wholed, Barney catches up with Singer and Songwriter Samantha Whates. Her website at https://www.samanthawhates.me/ describes her thus: Scottish singer-songwriter and Rough Trade Records recording artist Samantha Whates is a hugely respected figure on the London folk & roots scene. Her beautifully crafted, poetic songs retain a strong affinity with her Scottish roots, cultivating a sound that is thoroughly contemporary, rooted in tradition, yet uniquely her own. Because we can't fit complete artist's music performances in to the show as a separate listening experience - as we would like - due to time constraints, some of the tracks from her album Waiting Rooms which she recorded entirely on location in various waiting rooms around the UK and out now at https://wonderfulsound.bandcamp.com/album/waiting-rooms?fbclid=IwAR0SHAUax2BcV0sI6xiSshlusozgh-klanI9o4I_UnnthD-hLDc4e-lflls play underneath the interview to give you an "amuse bouche" of her material. Enjoy.
