The July 2022 issue (#179) of Songlines is now on sale. For this issue’s cover feature, we celebrate 50 years of Glastonbury Festival, looking at the history of one of the world’s greatest events and uncovering what it’s done to support global artists. Other features include a deep dive into the rich musical traditions of Morocco’s Jebala mountains; an interview with Malian guitarist Vieux Farka Touré, who is returning to his roots; we visit Budapest’s impressive new House of Music, a museum and venue dedicated to the sounds of Hungary and beyond; a Spotlight on folk big band Bellowhead, who are reassembling for a November road trip; a My World interview with BBC Radio 3 presenter Georgia Mann; a Festival Pass from LEAF Festival in the mountains of North Carolina; a Beginner’s Guide to folk-rock veterans Steeleye Span; plus all the latest news, concert reviews, CD and world cinema reviews.
