Re: Music You're Listening To

Beethoven's Ninth Symphony...I find to be endlessly fascinating, brilliant and sublime beyond compare. For me, it reflects the power of the human spirit, and it fills me with joy and hope! Thank you for the reminder, Lisa! I am listening as I write :D. Maybe the best concert I ever attended was Bee...

Re: The Flame-discussion thread

Bev, your having caused me to alight here had me pick up The Flame again...I had missed some gems:-O The book melded very well with Easter Sunday's online concerts from both Andrea Bocelli and Tom Russell...as LC is kind of a folk mystic isn't he - both earthen and ethereal. Grazie mille to you, Mat...

Re: Linda Sturgess has passed away

That's very sad to hear. Linda seemed to have her pulse on every LC-related video out there. I will remember her for how we enthused together about the Crossroads Guitar Festivals. Safe flight.

Re: Walking weekend in Yorkshire 2019

Dear Phil and Jean, everybody knows how much thought and sweat you put into this fantastic weekend.

Thank you both (and your support team) so very much!!!

By the way, there is a forthcoming album of snippets from a decade of Walking Weekends. It is called Thanks for the Prance :D .

Re: Matters of Vital Interest: A Forty-Year Friendship with Leonard Cohen

Regretfully, I finished this memoir by Eric Lerner today. The depth, honesty, caring and sheer pricelessness of the friendship between Eric and Leonard - until the very last minutes of Leonard's life - is so very beautifully revealed by Mr Lerner. I don't usually care for lots of biographical inform...

Tony, Bev, Karren, Kush and all other 'other music' visitors, thank you and Merry Christmas!

Another Tom Russell, a live clip of The Light Beyond the Coyote Fence (which narrowly defeats The Last Time I saw Hank as my most played from Folk Hotel):
