Re: Looks like we have our first Mongol Horde song

It's just a shade too screamy for me.

Re: Non-Frank Gigs

I was at the Cambridge Folk Festival. Missed all the excitement of Frank being at the Olympic Ceremony. Who would have thought....??!! Amazing. Just saw a bit on iPlayer. Sounded perfect. Anyhow, Cambridge highlights: The Unwanted, Tim Edey & Brandan Power, Nanci Griffith, Habadekuk, Fay Hield & th...

Re: Mongol Horde.

Now tweeting YouTube links to hot snakes and Jesus lizard songs - both of whom were mentioned in descriptions of the band.

Am I reading too much into this????

Re: Darlington - 7th July

I shall be at Darlington to celebrate my birthday the day before ... it is also conveniently 11 miles away from my house :) It'd be rude not to go really, wouldn't it? I thought the same - except it's about a 10 minute walk from mine! Typical though, Darlington finally gets a gig venue that looks l...

Re: Non-Frank Gigs

Saw Sarah Jarosz in a social club in Chorley on Sunday. Outstanding. If you don't know who she is and you're a fan of traditional American folk, check her out now.

Re: Now listening to thread

Neil Young's new album 'Americana' just arrived, also just got 'Song up In Her Head' by Sarah Jarosz, who I saw play an outstanding gig the other night.

Re: Acoustic Guitar under £200

Tanglewood guitars are pretty good, they do a massive range so don't be put off if you only see high priced ones at first! I think their cheapest ones are around £130. If you can stretch a bit I have an Adam Black electro-acoustic that was £250.

Re: In Need Of First Ink Ideas!

Did something similar, took a whole bunch of stuff to an artist and said 'this is the space I want to use on my back, put something together using any of this' and the only thing I said I definitely wanted in it was the chorus lyrics of I Still Believe. I chose those words because I think that they ...

Re: First Gig Tips?

I played at a school show last week. I'm guessing it's a little different for me though - I'm a teacher! Still, there were about 250 people there, which is probably the biggest audience I've played to, or maybe the 2nd. Certainly the biggest I've played to with my current musical incarnation, which ...
