Maybe Allan Taylor could show up at the the lads date and for old times sake perform Senile Delinquent with them?

Lyrics here.....second ones!

I have fond memories of Allan, never been able to find sound or vid of one of the most fun FC moments....

Wow! I'm going to have to plan 2020 around trips to Kemsing!
Always a lively vibe there, and some of my favourite bands.
Alan Taylor! Takes me back to my teens!

Off to see 'friend of Cropredy' Damian Wilson (& Friends)tonight in the lovely and intimate surroundings of St Pancras Old Church.
It's in celebration of his 50th birthday so should be good I hope.

Further gigs I have lined up between now and Xmas are:

Brandy Clark - US Country singer - next Friday in Shepherd's Bush
Marillion with String Quartet - Nov 15th in Southend
Elles Bailey - Country Blues singer from Bristol Nov 22nd in Basildon. Discovered her this year at Ramblin' Man Fair and thought she was great.
The Comet Is Coming - US alt-prog-jazz-indie outfit Dec 5th in Shepherd's Bush - taking a bit of a punt here as only know what I've heard on 6 Music
Steeleye Span - 50th Anniversary at the Barbican Dec 17th - 'nuff said  Smiley

Martin Barre Band with Special Guests Clive Bunker and Dee Palmer, Dosey Doe's Big Barn, The Woodlands, Texas, April 18, 2020!

You could have knocked me over with a feather at the news that this line-up of the Martin Barre Band would schlep themselves all the way down into Texas!!!!!

Assuming no Austin show is added, I'll be there at The Woodlands, and/or at the Arlington Music Hall on April 17. The Big Barn is a unique music venue, with good food, great sound and excellent sight lines throughout.

I never had the pleasure of seeing Tull with Martin (or Clive, or Dee) so I am really looking forward to this one.

Not for me, but did we know that Supergrass are back with dates next year (after playing the Pilton Party a few weeks ago)?  A couple of decent ditties aside, I've always thought they were very overrated and the 2008(?) Cropredy performance certainly didn't change my mind about that...

Neither knew nor cared after their appalling Cropredy appearance.

Was it appalling?  I can't really remember.  I thought it was just a bit dull....

They weren't good at Cropredy but there were extenuating circumstances. They were in the process of breaking up. Relations in the band were fractious and they were promoting an album that was far from their best. They were generally however a fantastic live band (which you would not know from their Cropredy show) and their first four albums are all terrific and inventive records. Road To Rouen also has a lot of fans. They got lumped in with the Britpop crowd but at their height they knocked most of their contemporaries into a cocked hat. Sadly I can't get to any of the reunion gigs.

Always had a soft spot for Supergrass...Although I am a bit biased as they were/are a local band Roll Eyes...Late in the Day and Richard 111 are terrific songs...It's a shame they were lumped in with the Britpop thing...They were much better than all that...Would love to see one of the reunion gigs...

Very excited to have splurged (on my budget) for a ticket to see Bob Seger & The Silver Bullet Band at the end of the month at Madison Square Garden. Not just due to cost, but I think I am completely over the big arena shows, but this is Bob's farewell tour and I was not going to miss it. I'm a huge fan, but my previous times seeing him have always been marred by one thing or another that prevented full scale enjoyment. So I actually bought myself, and only myself a ticket so I can just go and have no distractions and enjoy the farewell on my own terms.

What they are billing as Gerry Hell at Ulverston Coronation Hall an evening of music featuring the music with Merry Hell and Gerry Colvin, I am guessing it will be very different to the JIgdoll Ensemble gig I saw at the same venue on thursday but hopefully as good. I doubt my da will fall asleep at this one though, but that was his loss.

Thursday night, the 2019 Austin City Limits Hall of Fame ceremony at ACL Live!

The inductees are:  Lyle Lovett, Shawn Colvin, and Buddy Guy.  

The host is Robert Earl Keen, and performers include Jackson Browne, Shemekia Copeland, Jimmie Vaughan, Bruce Hornsby, Sarah Jarosz, Willis Alan Ramsey & Christone “Kingfish” Ingram.

I had never heard of Kingfish Ingram, but after reading his bio I'm looking forward to the discovery.

That sounds a lot of fun  Smiley

I have happy memories of this venue...I saw an awesome and very rocking Patti Smith gig there back in 2007, the night after she'd played at Kendal, equally awesome although very different (supposedly acoustic, it wasn't).

Was a lot of fun, was seating at tables....i am glad there wasnt a fire, but it would probably have been better all standing like the Patti Smith concert (though maybe not for the age of the audience, my parents wouldn't have appreciated it) I also need to get use to Gerry Colvin, he came across too eager to please (not usually a bad) and either there were in jokes or I have a different sence of humour. Merry Hell a pitch perfect live act, to me but strangely still haven't bought any of their albums, just have my Up the Shirkers and Shandyland - Tansads cds
As for the Patti Smith gig in 2007, I might have mentioned it before, but the night had a bad vibe for me, the band were great but I didn't warm to Patti recounting her childish antics at the Wordsworth museum, being part of the reason, seemed a bit photofit rebel to me.. Though Bettye Lavette the week prior was absolutely brilliant.

Tonight at the intimate Cactus Cafe, in the student union at the University of Texas -

Shawn Phillips.

I confess I had never heard of SP before I saw this show listed.  I looked at some old Youtube videos of him on the Midnight Special, and read his online hagio -- I mean biography.  He claims to be an associate of Donovan, the Beatles, Eric Clapton, etc., and to have been offered the role of Jesus in JCS on Broadway circa 1970.

Seems to be a very accomplished player and singer based on the videos, in spite of his apparent obscurity.  Should I?

His current tour is 3 nights in each town playing 3 different sets all focusing on a different series of albums...so not as odd as it looks!
