Guest Mix at Folkradio UK

Folkradio UK asked me if I’d do a guest mix for them, so I’ve done one with a loose Beltane / Summer theme called ‘Renewals and Reunions’.

Renewals and Reunions by Sharron Kraus by Folk Radio Uk on Mixcloud

It was a lot of fun to do and reminded me of making mix tapes as a teenager. I enjoy thinking about what songs follow on nicely from each other, creating a sequence of songs that flows and shifts, tells a kind of story.

That’s something that comes naturally to my dj brother Jon K, who takes me on a voyage through his record collection whenever I visit. You can check out some of his mixes here:

Album Release

My new album, Friends and Enemies; Lovers and Strangers, is now available for pre-order from Clay Pipe Music. It’s a beautifully illustrated limited edition 12″ LP with artwork by Frances Castle.

Frances has also made a beautiful animated video for ‘Stranger In Your Land’ from the album.

If vinyl’s not your thing, the album’s also available as a digital download from my Bandcamp site.
