The Folk Show 05/11/14 - John Tams

Nov 06, 2014, 04:32 PM

This week, the songwriter John Tams talks about Radio 2's new series of Radio Ballads, The Ballads of the Great War.

The Ballads Of The Great War are hard-hitting but lyrical accounts of life and death on the Western Front in words and music. Featuring eye-witness accounts from veterans and 50 specially commissioned new songs by the cream of British folk songwriters, each ballad tells the story of the war in the words of the people who fought it.
