Re: Hattie Webb E.P. Launch at King's Place (2nd Sept. 2016)

I managed to get a seat in the front row at Hattie's concert, and sitting next to me were Tom Johnson, who I previously met at a Webb Sister's gig, and his two talented daughters Maisie and Alice (15 & 13 respectively).

Hattie Webb E.P. Launch at King's Place (2nd Sept. 2016)

King’s Place was an impressive and prestigious venue for the launch of Hattie Webb’s new E.P. “The Mouth of the Sea”. The receptionists were helpful and pleasant, as were the three smiling ladies downstairs, selling Hattie’s merchandise. Mum and dad Webb were also close at hand to welcome friends an...

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...

"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.

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:
