Flowers of Edinburgh
And tomorrow I´ll be off for Liverpool (Yeah, Yeah, Yeah) and Gainsborough...
With this blog I wanted to build a homebase for the great aim of hauling Patrick Costello to Kiel. We did it. In Oct 2007 he was here. We had a great time. Since then this is a north-german banjo-blog trying to hold the community together.
From Friday 12. Feb on I will join the festival in Gainsborough, England, organised by the Friends of American Oldtime Music and Dance FOAOMAD. Not only will there be banjo workshops and sessions, but also a workshop (?) about sacred harp singing. I never heard about that, no idea what this was so I looked it up on YouTube and Wikipedia. This is amazing. Very different to the type of singing in my church when I was a child. Not for the lyrics but for the overwhelming passion and sound I envy those people who apparently love there singing.
(They could silence every banjo...)
