I was surfing youtube last night and came across an old favorite group, the Battlefield Band
The particular performance found HERE may illustrate why I love them... the interplay among the performers and their instruments is fascinating.
Of course, being who I am, I kept browsing, finding odd and odder waters...
For example, Star Wars and ACDC being played on a bagpipe HERE
Warning.. its very silly..
But then, I found magic. I love finding a new (to me) musician... Eddi Reader. She sings haunting contemporary, and also traditional Celtic music, including an album singing songs of Robert Burns' poetry.
She'll be in Chicago, Boston and Milwaukee this year, otherwise she's on the other side of the Atlantic. Her website is HERE
Here she is singing with John Martyn.. she has such a fantastic voice. VIDEO
Then I found another favorite, Dougie MacLean, this time singing with Kathie Matea
And one of my favorite Scottish songs of all time, his CALEDONIA
Great night for surfing, dudes..
