Bottle up and Go

http://youtu.be/mRTDD2Z_xDg

Bottle up and Go is a song that is a standard of the blues. Based on earlier songs, Delta bluesman Tommy McClennan recorded


What a treat to have such a fabulous blue singer and guitarist like Andrew visit the caravan! He is one of the foremost blues performers in this area of the South West and the two songs he performed for us in the caravan are testimony to that. He has played wonderful guitar tracks for the Lush CD with Jackie Sharp as well as playing in various groups with have included the Barrel House Blues band. He also gives very interesting interactive lectures on the history of the blues and he is currently working on a book of local walks. This ‘snapshot’ of Andrew shows only the tip of an iceberg of talent and if you want more go to (http://www.andrewbazeley.com/about.h tml)

Celia

Tavistock Goosey Fair

http://www.youtube.com/my_videos_edi t?ns=1&video_id=pwTA9WymUZc

This song was written in 1912 by C. J. Trythall as a token of his love for Devon and was originally composed for vocals and piano.

Celia is such a lovely singer and very modest with it too. She has a very good repertoire of traditional and other popular songs and is always a delight to listen to. She can be found as a regular supporter and performer at The Swan Hotel in Bradford on Avon which runs every Tuesday evening.

It’s always a treat when Kate and Richard turn up at a club or festival, you just know they will add something special to an evening. They have a wide range of material which varies from contemporary to traditional songs which they interpret and perform in their own unique way.

Unforgettable

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6rljY yHkHeI

Irvin Gordon wrote this song, published in 1951 and was made popular by Nat King Cole

Unfortunately the recording was spoilt by the background noise of narrow boats but it was live and had the atmosphere of a working canal, so it was an unforgettable experience!
