Folk Music at the Royal Albert Hall!
When his last album 'Dragonfly' came into the studio I played it straight through twice. It's a terrific album, my personal favourites 'And Jesus Wept' and 'Lizzie Loved A Highwayman' will, I believe go on to become folk classics. So, as I say, I'm really looking forward to seeing the man live at the Albert Hall. If you haven't heard him, check out his website where there are samples of the songs for you to listen to.
By the way, this will be the first night that the Teenage Cancer Trust are hosting a folk night at the Albert Hall, I think that says something about the way that people are seeing folk music now. Perhaps the image of the Arran sweater and the beard is becoming less of a cliché.
Folk Music at the Albert Hall! All those hairy people singing subversive songs! Heavens!
Albert and Victoria will be turning in their graves. Good sez I.
