Christmas is moving-in FAST. Just what it will be like We have yet to know: But let’s hope can have a good time with
Family or Friends. And to set the mood, A Blast from the Past
The Christmas Song(Merry Christmas To You) 3.11
Somehow Christmas doesn’t seem right without That Song;
Oh and of course: We have just GOT TO HAVE this:
Bing Crosby. White Christmas 3.04
Can you really believe that was recorded in 1947.
And keeping to Old Songs: Thirty Years, or so,Ago, a guy called Richard Marx sang a really good Song.. and it Sold lots!!
Right Here Waiting – 30th Anniversary of Repeat
Yes I Know it’s NOT FOLK. But It is a Great Song.. and something good to listen to. BUT OK: LET’s get to the real stuff. And here we have a Lady with a Very Famous name.. and I think She does a good version of a very famous Old Song:
Rosanne Cash: 500 Miles 3.3
Oh it is good to hear that again.. It Really Is a Great Song..
And Rosanne is good: Famous name from Famous Father.
Lots of Folks never got a holiday this year.. and Maybe NOT again Next year.. So here is something with the Greek Sun.
Periali –Miki Theodorkis 4.07
Oh that is just Sun and Ouzo. Yes that brings back So Many Memories:
Let’s keep that mood.
Costa Cordalis Kiky 3.34
Oh Total Magic for Me and I hope for you.. And if you have a touch of Greek Brandy to put in that Ouzo!!
What more do you ask?
BUT: Where can I take You from Here?
Remember in RAYS CHAT 106; We had a New Lady sing for Us and I think We shouldhear from her again:
Heidi Talbot –The Loneliest 4.26
There is something Haunting in her voice: Yes I do Like Her.
It Doesn’t say Who the man is. I liked his voice.
And now let’s hear a Duo I have played before; they have Great harmonies with their songs, I like them so lets hear them again:
When You Look Me In The Eyes – Music Travel Love (Jonas Brothers Cover) 3.39
I like the Simplicity of the way they do things: Nicely Laid-back.
Well now it’s time for another Lady: and let’s make it Country!
Kerry Fearon Storms Never Last Official Video 2.35
And NOW something for the Ladies : sit back Ladies and pour a glass of your favourite tipple: And listen to this:
My Love – Andy Tielman 3.40
Well there you are Ladies that was something for You.
OK; And now something for the guys: I was just wandering around and came upon two Ladies; new to me. So: See how you like them:
Mama He’s Crazy 3.23
And looking to find something to follow that: I found a “Mandolin Orange” track that I had not heard before. And I liked it.;
Mandolin Orange – Unknown Legend
(Neil Young Cover) 4.52
Yes: I do Like Mandolin Orange.
And continuing my wandering.. just lookingaround, I came upon a Group that were NEW to Me.. So I listened.. and liked.

GONE West – This Time (Official Video)- Colbie Caillat New Band 3.43
Hey: I want to hear one of the Greatest Folk Songs; and: YES, I have one whizzing round my mind. Listen to this and join-in.
City Of New Orleans, Arlo Guthrie 5.35
Oh that really is one of the Greats. I hope you enjoyed that..
And talking of Train Songs.. There is one that comes to mind that really was a BIG song of the Skiffle Age: Oh YES I Gotta have One thatcomes from about 1957:
Freight Train – Nancy Whiskey 2.50
Oh those Skiffle days were the start of Many Folk Clubs.
Did you know that THE IAN CAMPBELL FOLK GROUP started as a Skiffle Group? And S0 did the BEATLES. They were THE QUARRYMEN. And a guy that really made His name with Skiffle was LONNIE DONEGAN. OH yes. AND: This really was a HIT in the 1950’s.
Lonnie Donegan – Puttin On The Style (1957) 2.45
That’s a trip into History for you.. BUT: We are in the 2,000’s And the sort of Group We are much more likely to hear /is maybe?
Put this in:
Mumford & Sons – Hopeless Wanderer (Official Music Video) 5.14
I find there is a place for both the Old and the New. With maybe a bias towards the OLD.. BUT: It’s the New Boys that are running the Show Now: Like these two:
Calum Scott, Leona Lewis – You Are The Reason (Duet Version) 3.16
Till next time Keep Smiling
We Need Something to be Cheerful About:Think FOLK. And Hope the Club can Open SOON.
