Only a few on here will have heard about this wonderful lady. Marina Jason, from Chicago, passed away two weeks ago, from a heart attack. Marina was a huge influence on the Folk Music scene, and was closely involved in the careers of John Prine, Michael Johnson and Bonnie Koloc. She was also a friend and confidant of Linda Thompson.

RIP my precious friend. I'll miss our long conversations... Today hurts, but I can smile, knowing you are finally out of pain.

Dreadzone: Dubwiser Volume One

They've a sale on at the moment; check out their website - plenty of decent reductions...

I paid £5 for this CD, and £5 for a Dubwiser t-shirt.

I have been a subscriber for a few years. Excellent articles and really high standard reviews form reviewers who care about the bands they are reviewing. The Un Herd CD’s are always a bonus and they have introduced me to some cracking stuff I wouldn’t have been aware of.

I am drawing a blank. There was a group that was big in the UK folk festival scene a few years ago and damned if I can remember their name.

Never mind - Dhol Foundation - Johnny Kalsi
Have you answered your own question there Bob?   Smiley
Yep, I didn't delete it because someone else might have been interested.  Smiley
Fair enough! You have prompted me to listen to some Dhol Foundation though so that's good Smiley

I've taken out a subscription to RnR mag and the latest issue came thru the door this week. There's a write-up of the Fairport gig in Leeds and in the Roots section of reviews both Jude and Gigspanner get 5 stars for their latest releases.

Steve Harley is on the cover, there's an interview with Jez Lowe and also Fish, Steve Rothery and Mick Pointer talk about the release of the debut Marillion album.

Unsurprisingly there are hardly any adverts for festivals apart from a few in Sept\Oct time.



I've just subscribed as well. It's always a good read.

I was at the Leeds gig and saw RnR scribe Oz Hardwick in the audience so I assumed there would be a review in the new issue. I thought it was an outstanding show. Hopefully Oz agrees!

Guess people will vote with their feet.


Which probably means, people like me will grumble about it, then buy it.  In truth, having got lots of nice Shirley vinyl and a fair number of signatures, I think I'll probably stick with the CD, but don't quote me in a court of law on that  Grin


I understand your reaction David, but it took me about 10 seconds to make the decision to order it, ignoring the part if me that might say '40 quid ! it's only a record for gods sake'. I ve got quite a bit of SC vinyl too and look forward to adding this. 😎
