Howff on Thursday
howff /haʊf/. A favourite meeting place or haunt, especially a pub.
Welcome to The Howff, Bella’s lounge for the lockdown.
Tonight’s Howff includes a flashback to 2017 where Karine Polwart is singing King of Birds from her amazing album Traces – King of birds performed live at Schottenfest 2017.
Karine is helping to promote Folk on Foot a virtual folk festival on Easter Bank Holiday Monday which supports musicians who’ve lost their livelihoods during the coronavirus lockdown. Check it out here. Follow them at @folkonfoot
We also have Groove On 10 featuring John Coltrane, Jimmy Smith, Funkadelic, Mogwai, the Beatie Boys, and the Chemikal Brothers.
Finally we have a Bella exclusive – Kid Carpet’s cover of Van Halen’s Jump with a bit of help from Ivor Cutler.
