Mary Ann 18 Feb
It felt like ages since I'd heard her - sounding like she had a fine time Celtic Connectioning - the guests were not bad, though not brilliant, I thought - I thought the first set the better - she played a great Louvin Brothers Cover (Whitstein Brothers) in memory of Charlie; a brilliant Ladysmith - she's right, I might have got too used to them and stopped listening, but that was a cracker; and a real beauty, I thought, Lubara Wanwa by Aurelio - http://open.spotify.com/track/5mz6XqguApcybFdhuJZzVs - a fantastic voice from one of the Balkan states with Youssou N’Dour in there too. Haven't quite got to the end of the show yet. Will get there eventually.

Reason: too many semi-colonic interruptions
John - I haven't heard it yet but it sounds great. (I've got some catching up to do on programmes generally) - Lat.

:doh:Don't know what made me say that - the record's from Central America (Honduras I think) - I suppose I could have mis-heard Mary Ann, or maybe I'm just coming down with something.:doh:
Thanks Global - so just a straight mistake then! Thanks for the thoughts - Coue ties in with Kurt's Uncle really, don't you think? "I urge you to please notice when you are happy, and exclaim or murmur or think at some point, 'If this isn't nice, I don't know what is.'"
Those excellent Whitsteins
Charles toured with Charlie taking Ira's part.
Fantastic singer, not so good a foreign traveler

Well I'll be a hum dum dinger !
