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!

Wednesday  Music : Sessions with Julie Byrne - "Emeralds"

"Sessions are intimate performances filmed exclusively for Portals. In our latest Session, the Seattle-based singer-songwriter Julie Byrne performs 'Emeralds'"

Ursula O'Reilly Traynor's insight:
A gentle entry into Wednesday. Music as Meditation.  Nature and  human sound  in harmony. City saviour. "Emeralds" seems all the more fitting as a celebration of my birth country. The island of Emerald .  Which I shall be revisitng this summer. To see those forty shades of green exist beyond a nostalgic notion. But also to discover some lesser known, impromptu, wild Irish gigs and jigs.

 In the meantime, let's enjoy some gentle wanderings, courtesy of Julie Byrne. Who brought music to a gentle whisper, who tamed the towering Union Chapel with a soft reproach, requesting its low loghts go even lower, so that the gentleness of her performance would not be disturbed by the sight of the silent listening audience?  More likely a wish for a more intimate rapport through the dimming of the ligjht.  A commanding performance on all counts! 

Thought for Friday
Music as Poetry

Ursula O'Reilly Traynor's insight:
An April Uodate
This is just lovely  to sink into early very early into a weekend morning. Like a plump feathery musical pillow.This was beautiful to listen to live at Daylight Music in unique UC one not too recent Saturday. Little tingles down my lazy afternoon spine. Not a sentence I ever thought I would write but hey that’s lush live music in Islington for you. 


Match 2018
Speaking of which, Daylight Music continues without us as we have run away from the city of spring dreams to soak up some Maltese rainshine. So go this week, get tjee to Daylight ye Londoners. It promises to be a fairytale afternoon. Oh and live is best but it’s great to have these live recordings too! Pat on the back Team Daylight you rock as you keep on rolling out sweet stuff for our ears. And sweet stuff for our bellies too, thank you Team Margins. Thank you.Ben & Co. What you do, yoi so for love. It's appreciated,

Weekend Music from David Ford - Brighton, May 2015 - O'Sullivan's Jukebox

'David Ford playing "O'Sullivan's Jukebox" from his EP "The Arrangement", after a mention for charity Reverse Rett of which David is an ambassador'

Ursula O'Reilly Traynor's insight:
Do we stay put and gain not much more than a beer gut? Or do we move away and gain a life less 'safe' less routine, with more chance of freedom and of creativity? Whilst acknowledging early influences, they come accompanied with an awareness. To stay would have limited us, destroyed our youthful hopes, drink our temporary escape, a life played out to the habitual sounds of music jukeboxed, tinned not fresh and live.

Sometimes it takes Richard Thompson to jump start Mondays.  Snow or no snow. With a girl, a boy and a motorbike . With a man and a guitar. Revving up my Monday. All time favourite. You're welcome.

Ursula O'Reilly Traynor's insight:
Mary Gauthier. Love this woman. New album co-written with US veterans must be heard. Watch her being interviewed by Sarah Silverman https://youtu.be/Bo7g3ehC-O0 .Then get online and book your seat for her upcoming UK tour. Two dates in May at Kings Place, tickets still available as I type but I don't think they will hang around for long. The second  show on May 17 was added due to demand. See you there!
