Well it's late and I've been on the ramble again....and ended up (after many twists and turns ) with this lovely clip of Chris Smither talking about how he writes a song......

Thanks for that - i enjoyed it. Didn't know there were and Cajun groups outside Louisiana. How's your vegetarian mouth organ player doing. Both revving up for the approaching season?

Very Welcome ..!
Derby has been a bit of a Cajun hotspot for quite a while ......
The Swamp Club was legendary ....
R. Cajun are a local band , and The Roosters are an off-shoot.(some good stuff on YouTube , especially with Yvette Landry)
My Old Harp players (Beeds)and Arhtur Billington (ZZ Birmingham) were founder members of R. Cajun. , and they even played twice for Paul MacCartney's private parties and Mary Mac's Wedding.
Beeds is particularly proud to have shared a microphone with Sir P..(he just got up to join in !)
Chris Hall subsequently appeared on P.M.'s version of Brown Eyed Handsome Man (but not sure if it was released , after the TV pre-view )
Summer's looking like it is taking shape as far as Gigs are concerned , but Alan and I are fairly laid back about it ....just going to take what comes , and try to do some recording in the meantime ......

Thanks for that Bodge. Probably the most powerful anti-racism song ever written and sung.

I had the pleasure of being with these guys for a week end in Spiddal in the early 1970, it was at a party at Alec Finns (De Dannan) lodge, Luke brought a gallon of poteen in a plastic container, a good time was had by all.
A bit of De Dannan including a "goat " intro

We recorded it Bradders, and had just finished watching it when I went looking for footage of the tour with Bob Dylan. It was magic.

Funny how the mores of childhood hang on. There was a bloke at the funeral last week in brown boots and I found myself wondering how things had changed.

I don't know whether you heard Wedgie Benn on the Saturday magazine programme on R4 yesterday. One of the main items on his playlist for posterity was Paul Robeson singing 'Joe Hill'. That's why I'm sitting here listening to the album Songs of Free Men again. If you've never come across it find it and have a listen. We forget men like Robeson. He remembered Joe Hill....

I dreamed I saw Joe Hill last night,
Alive as you or me
Says I, "But Joe, you're ten years dead,"
"I never died," says he.
"I never died," says he.

"In Salt Lake, Joe," says I to him,
Him standing by my bed,
"They framed you on a murder charge,"
Says Joe, "But I ain't dead,"
Says Joe, "But I ain't dead."

"The copper bosses killed you, Joe,
They shot you, Joe," says I.
"Takes more than guns to kill a man,"
Says Joe, "I didn't die,"
Says Joe, "I didn't die."

And standing there as big as life
And smiling with his eyes
Says Joe, "What they forgot to kill
Went on to organize,
Went on to organize."

"Joe Hill ain't dead," he says to me,
"Joe Hill ain't never died.
Where working men are out on strike
Joe Hill is at their side,
Joe Hill is at their side."

From San Diego up to Maine,
In every mine and mill -
Where working men defend their rights
It's there you'll find Joe Hill.
It's there you'll find Joe Hill.

I dreamed I saw Joe Hill last night,
Alive as you or me
Says I, "But Joe, you're ten years dead",
"I never died," says he.
"I never died," says he.
