So what have you been or intend tuning in to?

So far we’ve watched all of Scott Doonican’s Saturday Neets, Martin Joseph, Martha Tilston and Miranda Sykes. All excellent.

Can you recommend any others?

I have watched as many of Ian Prowse's Friday night shows as I can and two or three by The Mastersons.

Top marks though go to Gilmore & Roberts who have done shows on a number of platforms, Facebook, Youtube, Patreon. Every one has been an oasis of bonhomie and great music. They have also done a couple of live Q&A sessions.

There have been so many I ended up with clashes and had to timetable but....

So .....
Wurzlebush Folk Club ......Tuesday’s 8.30
Virtual Monday Night Club......Monday’s and ( now by popular demand Thursday’s)
Steve Knightly and Phil Beer doing individual regular online gigs
Discovered a gentle wry guy called Terence Blacker who does a Monday night  show on a theme , inc his material and some interesting covers.
The lovely Edwina Hayes doing a regular Saturday night request show.
Luke Jackson is doing regular stuff now.
Kontra Roots Club is putting up vids of it’s most popular acts....
Loads of fests doing virtual stuff. We did one for a Exile Festival
Athony John Clarke doing daily stuff....and John Watterson
Lowri Evans and Lee have been doing regular live shows

All 16 of Ian Prowse Friday gigs - 2 hours + each, have been excellent. Phil Odgers aka Swill from The Men They Couldn’t Hang, each Sunday. Martin Stephenson, generally twice a week. All these on Facebook. Frank Turner each Thursday on YouTube raising funds for independent venues.

I’ve been watching 3 Daft Monkeys, and Honey and the Bear, every Sunday since lockdown started.  Local musicians here in Lanzarote are also doing ‘lives’.  There are so many about now we are spoiled for choice!
