Yeah sorry Gavvy…. I’ve just ordered a load of T-Shirts with `So Gavvy say’s…The Blues was invented in Scotland’… I’m going to New Orleans next year … I’m gonna make a killing flogging them $20 a pop….

I mean it stands to reason if you and Surface says so....

Popped there for 24 hours, arrived for the end of foo fighters on sat night and left before the end of Ed Sheeran.

Spent most of the time holed up in Shangri La as I was there with dnb peeps to do some MCing and what not.

All in all one of the best places on earth for 5 days. Even if you donif like music 👌🏼

Re: Glastonbury 2017
this is Darby and Tarlton recorded in the 20s. This is considered to be early Country, though to me its fairly indistinguishable from blues at the time. Just coz theyre white I guess.

I saw her as part of the transatlantic sessions a couple of years back. Absolutely brilliant performer. Knocks Sheeran into a cocked hat. Mesmerising.

Leadbelly covered House of the Rising Sun....a song which once warned "There is a house in LOWESTOFT they call the Rising Sun"

Re: Glastonbury 2017
There was a program on tv a few years back as well that got a black gospel choir from down south and a group of Gaelic singers from the Hebrides together. All a bit technical from what I remember but the similarities were pretty remarkable.

Re: Glastonbury 2017
For those who doubt that the blues came from the melting pot of European folk and African rhythms just go and listen to Mississippi John Hurt and it might change your mind a bit.

There were lots and lots of African American string bands in the 1910s and 20s. Just that they never recorded anything.

Lots of the delta blues is very very folky. Then you've got stuff like the Mississippi Sheiks who bridged the gap. Interesting stuff.

Then look at the sort of stuff the Carolina Chocolate Drops do in the modern era. They know their onions.

Re: Glastonbury 2017
I thought the mention of akonting from west Africa was quite interesting. Blues is no doubt the result of a mix of influences, both black and white, but having had a listen to a few akonting choons on YouTube, I can see an influence there.

Re: Glastonbury 2017
while the findings of Kubik and others also clearly attest to the essential Africanness of many essential aspects of blues expression, studies by Willie Ruff and others have situated the origin of "black" spiritual music inside enslaved peoples' exposure to their masters' Hebridean-originated gospels.[8] African-American economist and historian Thomas Sowell also notes that the southern, black, ex-slave population was acculturated to a considerable degree by and among their Scots-Irish "redneck" neighbours

`Even academics tread warily about it because of the demands by certain groups that its an entirely black thing`

Ah yes…. Good ol Stevie Nicks… who was influenced by Captain Caveman whacking two wooden clubs together in 100000BC

Talking about music is like talking about politics.

Not gonna change your mind because someone else likes a different artist.

Not much modern stuff floats my boat, so I generally neither love or hate.

Music by bands like Train, won't be still getting played on the radio in 30 years time like Fleetwood Mac are, put it that way.
