The Dubliners - 50 Years Celebration Concert in Dublin.

Use the famous Search Engine and it will take you to the YouTube site.

IMHO 2hrs 17 Min of great music and stories.
Call it up on your Smart TV, switch on the home theatre, grab a drink and enjoy.
wish I had found it sooner.

Right now it's the African Guitar Summit. Just the kind of music we need in these turbulent and uncertain times. I cannot recommend this CD highly enough.

If you are into African guitar music, may I recommend Mokoomba. A Zimbabwean band, who are really exciting. I have seen them live & they do a wonderful set.

For example.

I enjoyed it! Thank you. I've now moved on to Shaka Zulu with Ladysmith Black Mambazo.  :) :) :)

They really help to propel the Unalga along.  ;D

Today I am listening to anything by Albert Lee.

Went to see him & his new electric band, in Bristol last night. and they were great. He is 74 and has the fastest hands I have ever seen.

His history is fantastic, played with the Crickets, the Everly Brothers, & Emmylou Harris among others.

Thursday Next

But did you get to see the Foo Fighters when they played Frome, Keith?

No I didnt, only found out that they were on from the local news.

For those who missed this item, they played an invitation only gig to announce that they will headline Glasto this year. Frome is a very small town & we have a concert venue called the Cheese & Grain Hall, capacity 500, which has had some great gigs, but the Foo Fighters are a little out of our normal league!!

It is probably the nearest decent hall to the Glastonbury Festival site, which I guess is why they chose it.

Frome centre was apparantly jammed solid the whole afternoon & evening.

I was going to post links to some of the news items, but Dave Grohl's comments from the stage here, about Trump & his supporters, when quoted in full, are not acceptable for this forum. Feel free to look them up!!
