Amy Leach is a final year student of traditional music at Newcastle University who has also been mentored by leading folk singing authority Sheena Wellington. Earlier this year, 1320Radio took the opportunity to make an audio/visual record of Amy in performance at the Wighton Centre in Dundee. We also recorded a short interview with Amy and Sheena and discussed the act of mentorship and their shared sense of duty towards these the songs.
The Singer and the Song also represents a statement of intent for1320Radio as synergetic feature that incorporates audio, video and editorial media to present an important story in a rounded way. Our proposal is that this three-for-one offer recognizes that audiences engage with subject matter in a multiplicity of ways and on a number of levels.
