Easy Ed commented on Nancy Dunham's blog post 'Fairport Convention's Dave Pegg Healed, Ready for Spring Tour'
"Of all the vintage bands still out on the road, this one stands head and shoulders above them all. One day I hope to travel to Cropedy and see them. Thanks Nancy for always keeping us up to date on them."

Fairport Convention's Dave Pegg Healed, Ready for Spring Tour

Legendary folk-rock outfit Fairport Convention will welcome the return of long-serving member Dave Pegg on bass guitar when the band hits the road this spring. Earlier in the year, his son Matt had to stand in as bassist when Pegg senior badly injured his hand in a kitchen accident."In January, I severed a tendon in the first finger of my left hand while I was emptying the dishwasher," Dave recalls. "The irony is I'd just spent two days chain-sawing firewood without incident.""My hand was in a…See More

The Oysterband Set to Release "Diamond on the Water"

The Oysterband is the coolest 40-something around.Any doubters need only listen to Diamond's on the Water, due to be released Feb. 17. It'd be easy and understandable if four decades left the Oysters a bit stale. But John Jones, Alan Prosser, Ian Telfer, Dil Davies and Al Scott (now on bass and mandolin) show they still have artistry to create songs that range from wistful ("A Clown's Song" "Lay Your Dreams Down Gently")  to downright rocking ("No Ordinary Girl") and beyond.John Jones took some…See More

Debi Smith's "Hits & Holidays" Keeps the Joy Ringing Throughout the Year

On Debi Smith's latest album Hits & Holidays the vocalist with the three-octave range–– a member of the much loved U.S. folk group the Four Bitchin' Babes and The Smith Sisters––turns her gorgeous vocals to an array of songs celebrating everything from Christmas to Collector Car Appreciation Day (That's July 9th, by the way!).The delight is that the diverse collection works beautifully. Although Smith has a voice that challenges the mastery of household-name divas, she never allows her…See More

Ashley Hutchings Remasters a Masterpiece: 'By Gloucester Docks I Sat Down and Wept'

The remastered re-release of Ashley Hutchings' By Gloucester Docks I Sat Down and Wept is one of those rare albums that is so beautiful it can re-ignite a genre as it leads music lovers to  rediscover an artist.It's no overstatement to consider this album a true gift. Hutchings, the Gov'nor himself, has nothing left to prove in music. If he walked away today, he'd still be revered for creating more exceptional music––both under his own direction and through founding bands including Fairport…See More

Will James commented on Nancy Dunham's blog post 'CD Review: Neil Young and Crazy Horse - "Americana"'
"It *is* a modern rock anthem, that leads in the right direction. The title of the album is either ironic (my take) or the best "Americana" I ever heard."

Jim Slattery commented on Nancy Dunham's blog post 'CD Review: Neil Young and Crazy Horse - "Americana"'
"Thanks for sharing the video too.  Wow you are spot on that without listening closely to the lyrics, sounds like a modern rock anthem. "

Jim Slattery commented on Nancy Dunham's blog post 'CD Review: Neil Young and Crazy Horse - "Americana"'
"Nancy, I love it when we (we as in, all of us) hear of an album or a movie and immediately roll our eyes and then find out that it's pretty darned good.  Your words here make me want to hear this album and I'll have to check it out…"

Thanks for friending back. I used to live in Arlington. Are you old enough to remember The Rosslyn Mountain Boys?
