Many thanks to Barbara for allowing my humble two cents in this space.
Variety is truly the spice of life.
Please turn your attention to the many gifts of Australian musician Jeff Lang. If you haven't been initiated, here he is, covering Richard Thompson's "1952 Vincent Black Lightning".
Jeff is one of those rare souls whose talent is matched by his humility. Last summer, I attended one of his performances at Bluesfest in Ottawa (Canada).
Flawless finger-picking at the speed of a dentist drill, incomprehensible acoustic slide playing and a sharp wit brighten his compositions. Coming out of a tradition that blends Australian roots music with folk, blues and rock, he delivers something that you don't happen upon every day.
If you get the opportunity to see the man work up close, don't pass it up.
I'll leave you with another taste and hope to drop back here soon with more surprises.
