Re: 'Angel of Lyon' Tom Russell

Hello Kush and Diane, I went to see Tom Russell last night. As on previous occasions it was an enjoyable evening with about 150-200 people in attendance. It was the last show of his current tour and his engagement with the audience is infectious. Max De Bernardi was amazing with his guitar playing. ...

Re: Party Songs - Leonard Cohen?

Perhaps you might wish to consider 'Queen Victoria' as a way to get everyone onto the dance floor if things need livening up even more.

Re: 'Angel of Lyon' Tom Russell

I have yet to see the show, Diane. I am seeing his last one here at Farncombe on Saturday. I am glad you had a good time. I cannot understand why he is so underrated in the UK. There will probably be the same number of people watching him this weekend as when you saw him. Such a shame but the atmosp...

Re: 'Angel of Lyon' Tom Russell

Hello Diane,

I am sure you will enjoy the evening. He also has a brilliant guitarist, Max De Bernardi, accompanying him. I am going to his last show on the tour.

Re: September 21 - Leonard's birthday

Thanks to the human heart by which we live,
Thanks to its tenderness, it's joys and fears,
To me the meanest flower that blows can give
Thoughts that do often lie too deep for tears.

Wordsworth.

In remembrance.

Re: Billy Joe Shaver Live from Bluegrass Underground

Hello Kush. I was unaware of the magnitude of the 'Trail of Tears' until I read your post and discovered more about the caves. The music and the location have opened up a whole new area for me to discover. Thanks.

Re: Lonnie Donegan

Thanks for putting me on to 'The Skiffle Sessions,' Alan. I have listened to some of the tracks and really enjoyed them. They have that earthy quality which characterises early live performances. I shall be listening to the rest very soon!

The Student Prince - Mario Lanza's voice.

A joyous song from 'The Student Prince.' Mario Lanza is the singer although he is not in the film. Edmund Purdom is the actor miming to the words - very successfully. A happy, uplifting scene. The second link is a very interesting blog from one of the extras in the film. https://youtu.be/OI3Bcgh4Jko...
