Folk on Foot / Cosmo Sheldrake in Boulsbury Wood

Listen on

Episode notes

The multi talented musician, producer and lover of the natural world Cosmo Sheldrake takes Matthew Bannister for a walk in the wood near his home. As well as creating electronic music from the song of endangered bird species and the sounds of deep sea creatures, he demonstrates his skill as a beat boxer, Mongolian overtone chanter and bones player; climbs halfway up a tree to sing in the wonderful acoustic of a clearing and covers a Tom Waits song. Along the way he’s full of observations about the interaction of humans and nature and we learn more about his inspirations.
