James Keelaghan: ‘Kiri’s Piano’

One of Canada’s finest singer-songwriters doing what he does best. This is an older video of James singing his song about the Nisei, who were interned during World War Two. I have yet to hear this song without choking up.

Two by Steeleye Span

A couple of Steeleye Span tunes to wake you up on a Saturday morning! The first is a fiery instrumental, the second demonstrates conclusively (in my view) that vocally, this current lineup is one of the strongest in Steeleye’s fifty-year career.

Oh, and in my opinion Maddy Prior is the reigning queen of current English folk music!

Steeleye Span are currently touring their new album, ‘Est’d 1969‘. Their website is here.
