From time to time we select a past Invisible Folk Club radio show to air on the podcast channel. Jon Bickley curates and presents the show. Nothing in the broad church of folk related music is off limits. 

On our podcast channel you'll find shows where the songs might be longer, where the music is allowed to stretch and breathe. Maybe something a little more challenging. 

We know our podcast listeners have the time, space and inclination to play the long game, to allow something to evolve.

Singer/songwriter Mark Blanchard has two musical lives. He is a solo performer (with guitar), he is also half of the duo Footsore Pilgrims (with bass player Michel Duvoisin). The two entities are radically different even though they often perform the same songs.

Mark's view of his musical world:
Solo = head
Duo = heart

At the start of this solo session Mark says 'The thing that really fascinates me (apart from the music) is the whole process of creativity, I'm absolutely passionate about it.' Indeed the passion pours out of him throughout. The conversation with host Jon Bickley is probably the most in-depth analysis of songwriting tools and techniques we've had to date.

Mark's fabulous song 'Fool In Me' is on YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VtcnpwSNuik

Footsore Pilgrims have an album entitled 'Damascus Lights & Blackpool Illuminations' details at https://www.discogs.com/Footsore-Pilgrims-Damascus-Lights-Blackpool-Illuminations/release/9809551
