Cool as folk...

Regular readers...sorry reader...of this blog will recall my fondness for a touch of the old folk (oh dear..that sounds like I have a fetish for being felt up by OAP's...we'll let that one pass), 'all around my hat' and 'a hey nonny no'...that kind of thing. I've also got a bit of a thing for Billy Bragg (again, nothing sexual, although he does have kind of a cute look). So imagine my delight (there, now I've turned into someone who writes in to the Daily Mail) when I spotted a mini folk tinged season (billed as English Originals) at Birmingham's newly revamped Town Hall and featuring the bard of Barking himself. It all kicks of with BB on Friday 25th April (showcasing his first new studio album for 6 years - Mr Love & Justice), Seth "fiddle about" Lakeman on Saturday 26th and a positive ladyfest of folk featuring, amongst others, Norma Waterson on Sunday 27th. Be there and be square.

And Tunng, too!

I cam over all excitable when I first read about this. It's gonna be fantastic.

Yes...Tunng too! It should be fantastic. Are you going to all three nights (GDFTN?).

Mrs B said...

And sexy Seth - that'll be the highlight for me!

All three nights, all being well.

I doubt the 'D' part of GDFTN will apply, though, bar perhaps the odd moment of Braggy. I dub this Getting Folked For Three Days.

CURSES!

It's just occurred to me that the Billy Bragg gig in this is the same night as the Bjork gig in Wolces that I've laready bought my ticket for.

Blast. Only two nights, then.
