stirrings 176

 

STIRRINGS 176 now out...

 

COULD THIS BE the first time Stirrings has featured an electric guitar on its front cover? It's possible. But it's in the tasteful hands of Blair Dunlop, so there's nothing to be afraid of. As you were... We get all the gen from Blair on his hot new CD, and another Stirrings Zone guitar titan, Keith Hinchliffe, also lifts the lid on his latest album release. And we take a deep and impetuous dive into local folklore, looking at North Sheffield's Kay-Kay or Kakin' Night celebrations, traditionally observed around All Hallows. There may be more to them than meets the eye...

 

All this and another generously upholstered Reviews section, news and mutterings aplenty, and a listings section boasting 350—yes, count 'em—events over the next three months. It's all happening here...

 

*This issue's Reviews Extra section is now fully updated*

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

   

Reviews

We're living in the white heat of the CD revolution. Nowadays the facilities to record and market a CD are available to almost everyone, and CDs are becoming as common on the folk scene as roadkill on a B-road, though usually they smell better. Well, you've made one—the next step is to get it reviewed on folk-flavoured websites and in magazines like this one. So what do you need to do to get your CD (or DVD, or book—we cover those too) reviewed in Stirrings? Step one is to send a copy to the editor, and include with it a press release or other information so that we know something about you and where readers can buy copies. That's it, really. There is no Step two. Our Reviews section gets bigger with each successive issue, so what we can't fit into the paper version of the magazine we'll carry in the Reviews Extra section here on the website.
