Went to see Stackridge in Bath last week - lots off the new album, which is much more contemporary sounding than some might have expected, but I daren't say anything too effusive about such a traditionally 'prog' band! . Not transferred my recording of their set yet, but I did also record the support band, The Scoville Units, made up of Leon Hunt, an English banjo maestro, who trained under Bela Fleck, and a group of fine acoustic musicians on mandolin, fiddle, guitar and percussion. Had it on in the car this morning and it sounded just as good as it did live. In all, it's a clever melding of Irish traditional and American bluegrass. Some of their myspace tracks too are quite, dare I say it, psychedelic or jazzy. Can anyone out there recommend other banjo based music which transcends the usual genres?

Boom...

Based on your post I take it you're looking for newer stuff and not the traditional music of say Monroe, Scruggs, etc. You might then be interested in a band Jerusalem Ridge and a fellow named Tony Trischka (gave banjo lessons to Fleck). They get into expanding the banjo into other musical styles like Fleck does with his stuff.

Richard Thompson - 'Action Packed -= The Best Of The Capitol Years' - a great comp at a snip of a price. The most recent time I saw hia a couple of weeks ago was an acoustic solo gig, where his guitar playing was even more expasive and jawdropping than usual - go see. On tour in the US with Loudon Wainwright in the fall.

I am suffering major Joe withdrawl - he hasn't played here since the War War War tour. I was spoiled for several years, catching him 3-5 times a year, both solo and with the Country Joe Band. He should hopefully be over with the Heroes of Woodstock tour in the autumn, though I can't see him doing Porpoise then. I agree, it's a great tune - David plays more boogie woogie style piano these days, though on the CJB tour, they were doing a fine version of Bass Strings, completete with more of an organ sound and also Bruce on harmonica.

I was digging through CD's last night to put some new tunes on the ipod (I use it for car journeys) and I got stuck playing the Ian Dury 'New Boots and Panties' album, there was a one-off. Great stuff.

Hey. ol' man.....never been to Scotland but it's always been a place I've wanted to visit and has had a warm spot in my heart....maybe because I'm a "Scot" (Scott!!). I'll check your local boys out.

I love Pentangle. I spoke with a young Scotsman a couple of months ago who had NEVER heard of them. I had mentioned the pride of Scotland & two of the best guitar players in the world (not to mention a favorite drummer and bass player!)-- PENTANGLE. He's been listening to them NON-STOP since, and he can't believe they are unheard of by so many fellow countrymen, including himself! He went to his local music/CD shop and they had NOTHING by Pentangle!! So he went online!

What's with that!!!! Get out the PENTANGLE!!!

Pentagle for sure!! Some Fotheringay!

I have been playing Steeleye a lot lately....I have 5 or 6 on vinyl. They just seem to get better with age!!
"....if you are inclined to listen....." ("A Calling-on Song" from Hark The Village Wait....brilliant!)
