What’s your song? Not your favourite song but the one inside you that defines who you are?
For years Kate Dimbleby has made shows about other people’s voices and stories – hiding behind the smooth sophistication of Peggy Lee, the bold blues of Bessie Smith, the fragile tones of Dory Previn.
But Kate has always had another nagging voice in her head – what’s her true story, why is she not singing it and who are the people on that journey?
So she started listening… from London to the forests of Canada, the streets of New York and Bristol, recording the sounds and people around her.
Songbirds is about the voices around us and the voices in our heads. The sounds we keep locked up inside. Most of all it’s about the need for connection. Outside and in. Right here, right now.
Kate will be joined by a special guest for the second half of her show.
