Live music is one of my favourite things in the world. I used to go to quite a lot of live shows, for some reason I don't anymore. I miss it. I should start doing that again. Few things can beat the feeling in your gut when you leave a great gig, dancing on clouds all the way home.

One of the best live acts I have ever seen is Woven Hand. The heart and brain of the band is singer/guitarist/accordionist/banjoist/mandolinist David Eugene Edwards (formerly of 16 Horsepower, another band...

When I was 15 years old, I discovered the music of Bob Dylan. Sure, I had heard him before, but he had failed to reach me. Now, the words of The Times They Are A-Changin' spoke right into my teenage heart:

Come mothers and fathers
Throughout the land
And don't criticize
What you can't understand
Your sons and your daughters
Are beyond your command
Your old road is
Rapidly agin'.
Please get out of the new one
If you can't

Country Queen Dolly Parton and Godmother of Punk Patti Smith - what could they possibly have in common?
Well, they both happen to be born in 1946.
They are both living legends in their respective genres.
Both of them possess very impressive vocal abilities.
And I absolutely adore

So, what song is stuck in your head at the moment? I heard Good Morning Starshine from the musical Hair yesterday, and its nonsense chorus is so freakishly catchy, it just won't leave my head.




Sure it's a cute song, but it gets annoying pretty fast!

D3 - The Wonders of Singing

I'm looking out the window. It's raining. The ground is covered in wet, slippery ice. I guess it's rather windy too, and, of course, cold. Soon I'll have to get out there. I can't wait. Tonight is choir practice, the first time this year. It would take more than some rain and cold to keep me away. What do I care if I get wet? Tonight I will be one of 30 voices uniting into one single, singing being, filling up the room, sharing one joy. Few things make me happier than that.
