BBC Radio Merseyside's Folkscene (longest running specialist music radio programme in British broadcasting history) presenter Mike Brocken announced that 'Maybe Half a Lifetime', by Calum Gilligan, had been selected as the show's 'EP of 2019'!
DEBUT ALBUM RELEASED 14th APRIL 2022
Calum released his debut album 'Footsteps on the Broken Road' to a full house at the British Music Experience in Liverpool, and is now on a UK tour to promote the release!
Folk Radio- "Calum Gilligan quickly proves to be a gifted songwriter with a voice to back it up."
Downend Folk Club- "...a beautiful opening act. A lovely voice with a few gloriously pop-edged tunes. There was a hint of Kris Drever about him, and that's no bad thing."
Carpe Carmina- "The perfect musical melange for the quiet hours of the day, one best enjoyed having a hot brew in a cozy setting."
Liverpool Sound and Vision- "Maybe Half a Lifetime may only consist of five songs, but in those precious gems stands a feeling of understanding the songwriter and artist in such a way that the need to hold the songs close is overwhelming, that the time played with is enough to reminisce of Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel at their absolute best."
