It's quarter to 6 in the am on Thursday.
The sun is peaking up over my neighbors houses, and I can
hear 2 robins, and a house finch somewhere in the yard.
I find myself wishes lately that I lived somewhere
further away from the city. Someplace were I can see
more than a hand full of stars.
Here is a great Bob Dylan song that I started to cover.
What stops you from aggressively pursuing your passion and dream for a Christian music ministry? If you're like most folks, it's the age old problem of money and exposure. Many artists are weak in areas like business, finance and marketing. The intricate and delicate balance needed between the humility of ministry and hard-line of business is difficult to define - and even harder to maintain. Consequently, critically important stuff… Continue
Greetings! I am an experienced house concert host from New Orleans, Louisiana. I also represent Celtic American musician Marc Gunn, whose music can be heard to www.marcgunn.com. Marc's been working on a new CD, "Happy Songs of Death." Yup. Much more bluesy than work on the site now - due to his recent move to New Orleans.
Marc will be in the UK in September and would love to do a couple of house concerts there. It's our favorite venue! We provide promotional materials and a house concert… Continue
If are on my page you will notice that I having managed to place a supersized widget there.
If nothing else I hope you will check out our songs. But please forgive me for adding something so dramatic. However, overall I do think it is kinda cool.
The following is a report on how my poor attempt at paying homage to Status Quo's 5 shows in 1 day went...
6am, well I am convinced this time is illegal so im not going to talk about it. Caught the briefly delayed first train of the day at 7am, thus enabling me to get the 7.41am train to Aberdeen with ease. After consuming one large black coffee I was finally awake.
A gloriously sunny day along the east coast whizzed by only to be replaced with a grey, damp and hot day in… Continue
Wanda- "I like rainy dreary day's. They remind me of my time on the island.
It's funny," she continued "cause I hated it when I was there. A little
time and some growing up, and suddenly I realize just how lucky I was."
Grandma- "Why are you always talking like your some kind of wise old sage."
"I mean christ Wanda you're only 45 years old. You should just
go out and have some fun. Pick the best…Continue

I got your note but it mysteriously vanished before I could reply(!?!) - either my total lack of computer skills or the whimsical nature of my computer being likely reasons. Anyway I didn't want you to think I was ignoring you and this is the only remedy that presents itself since your apparantly not on the search-list thing.
The more I listen to their songs the more I'm enthused. It's just great stuff! And Miss Diana's voice is just outrageous!
If comparisons have to be made, I'd say she sounds more like the great Maggie Bell of long gone Scottish band, Stone The Crows – one of my all time favorites.

If you know of anyone who might be interested in hosting me for a show during the month of October, 2009 please get in touch. I will be performing solo...here a blurb from my press release!
Linda's busy tour schedule reflects her love for performing having completed 200 shows last year alone. She is a compelling entertainer and her personality and storytelling add an intimacy to her shows regardless of the size of venue. Her evocative and powerful voice is… Continue
So said Jimmy Buffett. How true it seems to be. I've had a busy recording year... released Americana Blues, an 11 song collection, on my own label, Wilmac Records in January, and almost immediately started working on another album in conjunction with Flyin' Dog Records, a small blues label based in Houston, Texas. You take opportunities when they present themselves. I spent much of last year touring. This year my live performances have been mostly in California, where I live, and Texas,… Continue

One place that is high on my list of must see places is Antarctica. I would love to experience this fragile and awe inspiring landscape first hand.
A friend of mine Kirk Watson (a seasoned Antarctica veteran) is filming his experiences of life from the UK base at Rothera over the next year. If you ever wanted to see what an Antarctic Winter would be like and to find out what people who live there get up to check out Kirk Watson’s blog on life in Antarctica. The blog covers not only… Continue
Well, after a very successful Off the Tracks Festival gig in Derby, I'm pleased to get this little video of a special performance in Canada on YouTube. Please do have a look and laugh your head off. Yes, Rob and I fought valiantly over this song in the… Continue
Last night we had a great gig of Canadian American Ray Bonneville in our livingroom. About 15 people did go exiting during the songs. Ray is a great performer, his lyrics mostly have a message in it and his guitar playing is unique. He shows the art of not to fill in too much. That's why his way of performing is relaxed and a great pleasant to hear. We like to have Ray back in… Continue

Since october last year I am the granddad of my first born grandchild. Her name is Rose. And as you can aspect, I adore her. It is great to see how a little human being grows up into a fine little child. Last week she became her first teeth, without crying, simple like that, amazing. Such a wonder of nature, makes you think about your own life. From being a child to being a granddad now. It gives me a warm and satisfied feeling. Being a granddad… Continue
An incredible honor, I think. Please view the video for album track "What You've Seen", produced by Greek artist Katie Mavromati.
The song is about my time in Malaysia. I was there when the tsunami in 2004 swept away people from the beaches around Penang Island, particularly on the Northern Coast. There in Georgetown, I was in the CHEONG FATT TZE MANSION, a… Continue
The beauty of a music review is that words of praise sustain an artist when little else is coming in materially. Don't you find? While a critical mass is building, sometimes you're just slogging away at it: making calls, sending emails (last night for me it was an all night effort to contact every Arab/Palestinian filmmaker I could find online, and what an adventure that was).
The randomness of this business never ceases to amaze me, at least in the formative stages of building one's… Continue
