A Surreal Yet Totally Meaningless Title

So, at the risk of boring the socks off my reader, a bit of culture. I have popped on sandals over my socks & have got a finger stuck in one ear as it’s folk day on Lack-A-Daisy. No, I am not a folkie geek but I do enjoy lots of the music.

On Sunday it was a trip to Queen Elizabeth Hall to see The Imagined Village, a fantastic folk fusion. I loved the sitar. The line-up vwries to include Billy Bragg, Benjamin Zephaniah & Paul Weller, none of whom were there on Sunday!

The gig began with a support session from Chris Wood who got things going with a brilliant song about the death of Jean Charles de Menezes. I loved My Darling’s Downsized, his take on the love song  which contains references to allotments, celeriac & chitting potatoes. You can’t get much better than that. (You are allowed to skip to 3.55)

It is difficult to get a real feel for the evening: I just love live music of all sorts, you can’t beat it! All you have to do is enjoy.
