Afternoon Song: Richard Thompson - Persuasion -

Brilliant duet between RT & his son Teddy. Video quality isn't great but the performance sure is!
Ursula O'Reilly Traynor's insight:

March 2013: I saw Richard Thompson @ Ronnie Scotts ..oh .. too many decades ago. He was on stage with his then-wife Linda and it was a night not to forget. I believe his current tour has the man in great form. This track is dedicated to Jane Brace, for reminding me that not all my youth was misbegotten!

I also caught Teddy Thompson live @ the London Fleadh several years ago ..very laidback droll ..and a good performer, given the boots he has to fill

Music for a London Life

Music for a London Life | Music for a London Life | Scoop.it

Music for this London Life will feature absolutely anything that appeals!

 

Music that features London ..music that played in London ..that's played in London ..music by those that live in London ..lived in London ..were born here ..visited here ..died here ... and music that has nothing whatsoever to do with London ..it simply makes my London Life happy!

 

Enjoy the mix!

Friday Music : Villagers - Cecelia & Her Selfhood

 

 

"A long-standing live favourite in Villagers' shows, 'Cecelia' has finally been committed to tape. Indeed, more than a simple music video, it slowly took the shape of a short film by animator extraordinaire, Adrien Merigeau. 

 

(See: http://adrienmerigeau.com/)

 

Adrien and Conor began the filmmaking process by discussing the song in all of its aspects. Then Adrien let loose. "

Love this recent video version of 'Brother'.

Would also thoroughly recommend buying the EP.

Oh, also, catch them live, if you can.

I missed their gig at the fabulous St Pancras Old Church  in the spring. Saw them way back in Sept 2012 at Daylight Music in Union Chapel, Islington. Can't see any UK gigs coming up any time soon. Our loss would seem to be Germany's gain.

Song for a Summer Sunday: To Kill A King ~ Choices

"This is a joyful collaboration, introducing me to some very talented 'young guns' on the ever-evolving folk scene. I'm loving the cumulative musical effect here, like a flower opening slowly , to reveal its inner beauty. There is such pleasure to be gained in watching the video as it moves along -it's moving in more ways than one! I love the innocence and purity and the strength in numbers! If you like them too -how could you not! I think this video was released for Christmas, profits to go to charity. Bless."

 

'Word of Mouth EP' out now!

Check out their website : http://www.facebook.com/tokillaking

Ursula O'Reilly Traynor's insight:

July 2014

 

I first heard To Kill A King via Sofar, way back in December 2012.

its great to revisit this video, a sort of magical musical stroll with some friends, that turns into a big instrumental party .. just right for a sunny summer's day., if not quite at summer's end!  Enjoy!

Upcoming #London gig: Luke Jackson @ The Garage

Upcoming #London gig: Luke Jackson @ The Garage | Music for a London Life | Scoop.it

Luke is a rising 19 year old Roots singer/songwriter from Canterbury, Kent , and 2013 saw him nominated for both the Horizon Award for Best Emerging Talent and the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award. With a bold, show stopping voice and honed guitar skills, Luke is a confident and captivating performer demonstrating an astonishing maturity. He has been making ripples on the live acoustic scene supporting such luminaries as Show of Hands, Paul Brady, Chris Wood, Steve Knightley, Karine Polwart and Oysterband. Last autumn he made his debut in Scotland, winning praise for a stand-out voice, songwriting skill and stage presence that completely belies his years.

 

His debit album More than Boys, produced by the acclaimed Welsh singer-songwriter Martyn Joseph, launched at the  Shrewsbury Festival, has been receiving plaudits from critics and airplay on numerous radio stations and 2014 sees the release of his accomplished follow up album, Fumes and Faith, which Luke has co-produced with Cardiff-based American record producer Mason Neely It’s a belting roots and blues infused album of 11 original songs and his voice is richer, his fan base is bigger and he has delivered startling performances on the UK festival scene, from Cambridge to Sidmouth and The Great British Folk Festival.

 

With a wealth of finely-observed narrative songs, The album emphasises the exceptional maturity and versatility of one of the most exciting young singer songwriters and live performers on the scene!"
