It’s RAYS CHAT One Hundred & FORTY Seven
The references I Give You Are From YOU TUBE FOLK MUSIC
As I was working on this RAYS CHAT,
I heard that
Willie Nelson Had Died, aged 89 on 6th November.
Great Performer Who went on working
even though He had been ill for Many Years:
He will be sadly missed.
“What”ll Do” – Willie Nelson 3.40
YES SAD DAY. I will certainly Miss him.
SO: Here We are Officially into Autumn.
And must expect Cooler Weather. And Yes, it is Cold Damp Days
with not much to look forward to.
Lets see if we can find a Cheerful piece of Music?
Autumn Leaves with Breeze 4.23
There are not many Folk Songs about Autumn;
So While I search..
Lets hear the voice of Katie Meluha: I do Like Her.
Katie Meluha Walls of the World 3.27
Thanks Katie. And I searched for Something Different:
and came up with THIS:
If I Need You (With Don Williams) (2008 Remaster) 3.35
And then found a Guy I had not heard before,
Who played a nice Guitar: See how You like Him?
Killing Me Softly with His Song Joseph Sullinger 3.17
And following the Gentle Sounds See how you like this:
Haroula Rose Green Eyes Live 5.00
Nice: She is the nearest sounding to Kate Wolf I have heard.
Yes I Liked Her.
And THIS IS DIFFERENT:
THE GAEL from the last of The Mohicans –
Breizh Pan Celtic 5.40
And following THE DIFFERENT THEME..
This a new version of a song You will Know..
But this a new version I Like:
Take Me Home Country Roads – Southern Raised 4.31
And Here’s how they do Trad Music in Olde Ireland
O’Connor’ s Pub Doolin – Irish Trad Music 2.34
Didn’t they pack them in!!
And now for my next offering I am going to Play another song from
Lila Downs. OH Yes: I have become a Fan!! She is just a
Superb Performer. Well see for yourself.
Lila Downs – Fallaste Corazon (En Vivo) 4.25
WOW!! How do you Follow That?
Well: Someone had the idea of matching two very different
Ladies singing a real Great Song.. Unfortunately One of the Ladies
Is No Longer With Us. BUT We still do have the recording.
Katie Melua & Eva Cassidy – What A Wonderful
What a Wonderful World (Official Video) 2.44
Well, We have had a bit of a chase around, Here and there??
Where to NOW? Well We haven’t heard from Jack??
Better do something about that:
Jack Savoretti – Love of your Life 3.42
I wonder WHERE TO NOW?
Oh Yes: I know!! I loved this When I first Heard it:
Lets hear it Again:
Jackson Dean – Wings (Lyric Video) 4.26
I think the sound of Pan Pipes might Go Well Now?
The Sound of Silence’ Padre Neustro (Pan Flute) G GentleSound
So: Where to next?
Well I have not heard Finbar Fury for a long time.
This man I first heard a long, long time ago:
When He was Part of his Family Folk Group; Called THE FUREYS
Then He Retired ..
and started All Over Again!! As a Solo Artist.
Yes I think it is time to hear Him again:
Finbar Fury – Sweet Sixteen – Celtic Connections 4.19
Oh What a Great Man: total Audience control.
Now? We come to the end of another Rays Chat.
And there is only One Man We will end with:
