Good morning. It’s Thursday on Morning Brew, and once again we’ll have a musical start at 10.10. Live folk music in Hong Kong seems to be the thing these days, partly because it involves less “gear”, but more importantly because so many people here seem to love it. Under the name “What The Folk”, there are a lot of gigs going on for the rest of this year. Organiser of this mini festival, Mark Rawson, will join us with all the details and some music from a couple of local bands. After 11, our vet Dr. David Gething will be with us to advise you to be careful what you read. Social media is full of back room animal advice, including todays topic; a graphic telling us which human medicines are safe for dogs. This made him raise more than half an eyebrow. Do ask him any of your pet questions too. At 12.10 we’ll find out about ‘Hong Kong Through Australian Eyes’; an exhibition at The Fringe which starts tomorrow, and highlights the work of four amazing Aussie photographers who live in Hong Kong. Former Fleet Street news photographer Jayne Russell is one of them, and she’ll tell you more.
Today on Morning Brew it's Fryday again after 10. Chef Jason Black returns, today with top New York Chef Mathieu Palombino. Mathieu is the brains behind what the New York Times called "the city's best pizza", Motorino's, and these days he runs the Bowery's newest sensation "La Gamelle". It's live music after 11.30 with Wells Cathedral School's (UK) award winning high-voice choir Choralia. They're here on a small concert tour and have just released their first international CD on the Naxos label, which contains 9 world première works by leading modern composers. At 12.10 we meet the one of the biggest names in UK comedy, Jason Manford. Well known for appearances on TV shows such as Funny Old Year, 8 out of 10 Cats, and Live At The Apollo, plus west end musical starring roles, he's here to perform at Udderbelly. We wrap up at 12.40 with this weeks movie review from James Marsh. Today: Legend, Before We Go, and Freeheld. (9:30am-1pm, , email email@example.com )
