Into a new month so its time for a live music shot . I like listening to Gospel music but nothing beats seeing it performed live. No better place than the Gospel Stage at the New Orleans Jazzfest. There are ten different music stages but you can guarantee that if you pop into the Gospel Tent at any point you will here music to lift the heart . I cannot remember the name of this particularly ensemble but they were smoking .
Talking of music I shall be at the Cambridge Folk Festival this weekend . Its my favourite english festival and the range of music is more varied than just straight folk . This years festival has been curated by an American singer Rhiannon Giddens from Greensboro, North Carolina. The festival is therefore not full of great American musicians including Rosanne Cash, John Prine, Janis Ian and John Moreland.
I am looking forward particularly to seeing Darlingside a young band from Boston Mass. who use amazing vocal harmonies and the magnificent rock and roll singer and writer Patty Smith a great heroine of mine. However if her set on Saturday night does not contain the wonderful song “Because the Night “ I will sulk for a fortnight
THANKS FOR YOUR VISITING BUT CAN I ASK YOU NOT TO FAVE AN IMAGE WITHOUT ALSO MAKING A COMMENT. MANY THANKS KEITH
