I would consider myself to have pretty a eclectic taste in music. I mentioned my love of Level 42 in an earlier blog.
My record collection includes Keane, Andrea Bocelli, Def Leppard, Big & Rich, Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly, Bryan Adams, The Darkness and the Backstreet Boys. Pretty varied…some may say strange…
Anyway, my wife overheard a snippet of a British folk group on Radio 2 last week called “The Lancashire Hotpots” and thought I would like it. How right she was. If you have never heard of them, look them up on Spotify. While the music might be lost on anyone not from Britain, it is a delight of humour from start to end about the common things in life.
Perhaps this is the start of a love of folk music…to add to a love of country. I had the pleasure of being at the CMA Fest in Nashville a few years ago which was fabulous…so many talented musicians and singers in one place – fabulous song writers as well. Country music is all about life…and those I enjoy seem to have a sense of humour…so much to enjoy.
Music often gives a theme tune to life…and life is good when your favourite music plays along.
