Hattie Webb at Green Note (31st July 2016)

Hattie's first London gig of the year turned-out to be another great success! When I arrived at Green Note, just before 6.30 pm, the queue was already longer than usual. However doors opened unusually promptly and almost everyone was able to get comfortably seated. There was a convivial atmosphere b...

Re: "The Patriot" by Beau

Another great track from this album (which apparently was No.2 on Amazon's folk charts recently):

"The Patriot" by Beau

Here's an outstanding track by Beau from his excellent new album "An Original Thought" which is available to buy on download. Beau originally came to attention as one of the first artists to record for John Peel's Dandelion Label (his best known song from that era is "1917 Revolution"): https://www....

R.I.P. Merle Haggard

I've just heard (via Sylvie Simmons Facebook page) that Merle Haggard has died on his 79th birthday. I'm not overly familiar with his music, though I know he wrote "Okie From Muskogee" and this song, which I've always liked:

Re: Neema - Painting My Wall Gold

Good to see that NEeMA has gone from 13 to 34 per cent in the last couple of weeks. However with only 4 days left to reach her target, surely there are more people who will at least pledge to buy her CD?

Re: Neema - Painting My Wall Gold

I've just pledged! With 13 days to go, it will be great if Forum members can help NEeMA achieve her goal, as they did with Hattie Webb's "To the Bone". NEeMA's previous album "Watching You Think" is one of the great albums from ladies associated with Leonard (check out my review on Amazon). Her for...
