Boothill Foot Tappers special with Wendy May in conversation with David Eastaugh

The Boothill Foot Tappers was a British folk/skiffle/bluegrass band that was formed in 1982 and associated with the folk music revival in the United Kingdom.

They were featured in the Ben Elton-presented show South of Watford on London Weekend Television in 1984, as part of the emerging British roots movement based in London, along with other acts including the Pogues. The Boothill Foot Tappers had a minor hit in July of that year, in the UK Singles Chart with "Get Your Feet Out of My Shoes". The band split up at the end of 1985.

On 28 January 2011, the band reunited (minus the deceased Kevin Walsh) for a performance at the London venue, the 100 Club.
