In today’s show originally broadcast on September 18 2018, EuroFolkRadio’s Andrew Carrington Hitchcock interviews Ken Nicol, for a show entitled, “Free Palestine!”

We discussed: Ken’s background; Ken’s albums for CBS and Polydor; the genesis of the seminal, “Nicol And Marsh,” album; Ken’s career in, “The Albion Band,” and, “Steeleye Span,” the legendary UK folk band; Ken’s 9 years spent living in the USA; how fairness and justice is worth fighting for; Ken’s interest in the conflict in Palestine, and his desire for a peaceful solution; Ken’s songs, “Streets Of The Angels,” and, “When Palestine Is Free,” that we played on the show; how long it can take to construct a song; how it is important to take a break from upsetting material; whether a two state solution is or is not possible; the murder of Rachel Corrie; the persecution of Ahed Tamimi; the BDS Movement and how this can be promoted; Roger Waters’ support of the BDS movement and a Free Palestine; how little help Palestine seems to get from the Arab world; the accusation of Antisemitism against Jeremy Corbyn; an effective approach to helping Palestine and the Palestinian people; and many other topics.
