Enjoy the mix!

Here Comes The Sun: The Lost Guitar Solo by George Harrison

Here Comes The Sun: The Lost Guitar Solo by George Harrison | Music for a London Life | Scoop.it
Here Comes the Sun -- it's one of George Harrison's contributions to Abbey Road (1969). And, among the many great Beatles' songs, it's my sentimental favorite.

I want this song! Mo Kenney – Sucker

I want this song! Mo Kenney – Sucker | Music for a London Life | Scoop.it

"To say the Rachel Sermanni-fronted Middle Of Nowhere Recordings is on a roll at the moment would be something of an understatement. After swoonworthy recent releases from Sermanni herself and Colin Macleod, the Highlands-based label now presents Candian singer-songwriter Mo Kenney."

Ursula O'Reilly Traynor's insight:

With thanks to for folk's sake, for the introduction to Mo's Songs.

This song is already a favourite of MFLL!

 

She's on tour at the moment with Rachel Sermanni

Monday's Song: M4ncave Sessions - Luke Jackson - Fare Thee Well

M4ncave Sessions - Luke Jackson - Fare Thee Well Become a fan of Luke Jackson on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/lukepauljackson?fref=ts 

Ursula O'Reilly Traynor's insight:

There's something about Luke that makes him stand out.

 

He's still incredibly young for a musician with such assurance, passion and professionalism. A seeker of perfection. Primarily a singer of his own material, this cover is a great fit for a voice already showing a mature suggestion of a great musical future. Not one to pigeonhole either.
