Every day I go out for a walk of about two hours. It helps keep me fit and sane. I’m incredibly fortunate to be out here in a village in the countryside. There are some beautiful walks.
As I’ve been wandering along up hills and down lanes I’ve found myself whistling and even singing (yes I know) various tunes that come into my head – Woody Guthrie’s This Land is Your Land is one that often presents itself. Another is Bert Jansch’s Strolling Down the Highway.
It certainly seemed to suit the vibe. A warm sun, big skies and a pleasant stroll. Busy going nowhere.
So today I’m going to be playing some classic Bert Jansch and mellow out!!
Play it again Bert!
Edwina Hayes has the most delightful voice, writes great songs and can play beautifully. She deserves to be playing stadia with huge crowds and selling CDs by the ton. That voice is worth a million pounds of anyone’s money. When is an astute promoter going to move in and snap her up? She should be on TV all over the world.
On a cold day in Brid she lit up the Ship Inn with the warmth of her personality.
It was all to our benefit. We got to see and hear a true genius in a great informal surround. She is so personable that she warmed everyone.
It was a grey day but Edwina made it a great afternoon.
The support was also brilliant. Stevie Mould sang some great songs with confidence and panache. Alistair Artingstal played some brilliant delicate guitar and sang soft and gentle through a batch of melodic masterpieces.
Thank you to the great Ship Inn in Sewerby for putting it on!! I loved every minute!!
