Harry Thomson brings you the best of new and classic music from Europe, Africa, Asia, the Americas, Australasia and the arctic regions if possible, Mondays from 8pm – 9pm. Like what you hear? Let Harry know, and if there’s something you think deserves a listen, pass the details to him.

Harry Thomson

Brought up in a house full of Dubliners, Clancy Brothers and, er, Al Jolson long-players, Harry’s first forays into music were decidely un-folk/world, as part of the legendary (in Kirkcudbright) post-punk outfit Zachariah Toadstool. Having returned to Galloway after a spell in the deep south, Harry dabbled in local folk sessions for the best part of fifteen years before joining up with Alan McClure as part of “indie folksters” The Geese, and later The Razorbills. He is involved in staging Gatehouse of Fleet’s Midsummer Music Festival and Mill Sessions, and can usually be found on a Thursday at the town’s Masonic Arms pub sessions, which mix folk with every other genre you can think of (and some you can’t).

  1. Liked the last Jazz one very much. Enjoying worldly stuff now too. Robin disappointed he missed the Herbie number but he was watching Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. Requests? Sheila Chandra – La Sagesse (Women. I’m Calling You). Thanks – getting back to my cakes!
