Our music team have been to some pretty cool festivals over the summer, and met a whole host of different artists. This week our featured artist is Newton Faulkner (think folk classics like Dream Catch Me). Our new Head of Music, Emma Rice caught up with him at Cambridge Folk Festival to talk about skipping, a trip to Japan, and their mutual friend Sam Brookes.
Here at Leeds Student Radio, we’re pretty proud of all the exciting things our members get up to. So proud, in fact, that we just want to tell everyone. It’s not that we want to take credit for their hard work and enthusiasm, but we like to think that LSR played a tiny little role in their success stories!
Ever wanted to know what it’s like to camp in the Yorkshire Dales, surrounded by wonderful food and perfect music? Well, you lucky little sunflowers, here is your chance. Ex-Head of Music, Robbie Russell, gives you a quick round up of Beacons Festival 2014. Click here to find out which food extraordinaire gets Robbie’s allusive and completely fictitious LSR Stamp of Approval, and which artist he calls ‘one of the most exciting names in Hip Hop’.
