One of the first songs I learnt to play on guitar.

Love lost, such a cost
Give me things that don't get lost
Like a coin that won't get tossed
Rolling home to you.  Rock

Cheers for that, Jack. I forgot how good that was. I haven't heard that for years. Pretty thought provoking stuff given the current state of this world.

This one always made me chuckle - great satire of the televangist ripoff's in 80's USA, and catchy to boot.

Music festival returns after break with plans to expand

THE city’s biggest music festival is making a comeback – and looks set to grow.

Barbican International Jazz and Blues Festival was scrapped last year with the organiser blaming a lack of public funding after five successful years.

Now the popular event is to return in June, after linking with a world-class yacht race and supported by a public-private partnership and Plymouth City Council.

Backers say they want to see the event grow and possibly spread to The Hoe and Royal William Yard.

“We are delighted,” said Chris Arscott, chairman of funders Plymouth Waterfront Partnership. “It is a great event that people really enjoy and which draws a lot of people into the city.”

The announcement was made by organiser Dan Thompson of events company Kaos Production. He said on a blog, “We’re partnering with yacht race La Solitaire du Figaro, and Plymouth Waterfront Partnership/Plymouth City Council to bring fabulous free music to Plymouth’s historic quayside quarter.

“Look out for excellent free music to get you dancing in the streets.” Details of acts for the event over the weekend June 13-15 would be revealed later, he said.

La Solitaire is considered the world championships for single-handed racing and is expected to attract 30,000 visitors. This will be the first time the race has come to Plymouth.

Mr Arscott said the Waterfront Partnership – a not for profit company – would be putting £16,000 into the festival which was “most of the cost”.

The city council put £8,000 into the 2012 festival and the Waterfront Partnership £6,500.

“It was unfortunate last year,” said Mr Arscott. “Dan’s aspirations were for an awful lot more in 2013, which was unaffordable.

“We have been negotiating with Dan to stage this year’s event at the same time as La Solitaire du Figaro. It is considerably less money and is for this year only.

“But we would like this to grow. After this event we want to sit down with Dan to see how we can expand it.

“It is our wish to extend the festival around the city and not make it exclusive to the Barbican.

“We need to think about it because having a multi-site event would be much more expensive. Having it on The Hoe and in the Royal William Yard gives it much more scope.

“We have always been committed to the festival. It is such a great shame that it did not happen last year.

“We feel that this year’s festival will bring a lot of people to the Barbican and bring more money into the local economy.”

Good news, tgwu,

Iv'e been a few times and was well impressed. Especially with quality of the blues line-up. Didn't pay too much attention to the jazz as it's not my cup of tea. I'm sure the king of Calstock (Knecht) may be interested seeing as it involves jazz!!

Yes that is good news and it's something that the City should really focus on and promote.

Indeed, Gobbers. Picture the scene: A hot sunny day on the Barbican, Ice cold Stella, Cap'n Jaspers smell wafting across, and decent blues belting out.  party animal

"Ice-cold stella"!!!!! You might as well just ask for a glass of water.

"Don't like jazz"!!!!!  scratch 

"Summer jumper"!!!!! If you're a trad fan it's got to be a duffel-coat. If you're into the modern stuff it's always a crisp suit & tie.

"Beige cords"!!!! I'll have you know my cords are dark brown - both pairs.

As for blues .... do you go for Chicago or country or that ersatz mid-Atlantic stuff where white boys from Hastings sing about the deep south?

Exactly, no matter what your taste in music, what can be better!

There are only two kinds of music - music I like and music I don't.

The only sort I consistently dislike is country music. Yee haw! But even then I like a lot of Johnny Cash and I do have a Hank Williams album.

As for blues - Sonny Terry & Brownie McGhee was one of the first albums I ever bought. And, talking of Sonny & Brownie.... this couple are making a return visit to Calstock on May 10th. Not only are they one of the best gigs we had last year and absolutely a pair of the nicest people, but they are also the recent winners of the BBC best folk duo awards. Phillip is an awesome slide guitarists & blues harp player who is almost as good as Mr Terry. Be there or be square.

The Van Dikes old house in Milford Lane has just been sold actually. I grew up with Jeff and still have vivid memories of his birthday parties at that house. Good times.

Sounds good, Knecht. I have just checked my rota and I'm on my four days off on that weekend. I think I shall attend the evenings entertainment and frivolities. May I purchase you a pint of frothing real ale to go with your beard and tank-top that evening? Laughing

My mum was friends with Peter's wife, who was a well-known singer, June Marlow.

Sounds good. We are suspecting the 'sold out' notices to go up again so be quickish. Sadly as the bar is only open occasionally we don't sell proper ale - we have some good bottles though. Do some youtube surfing on them first because they do a lot of straight folk music as well.

Here's some of Phillip's harmonica - straight blues. A bit hackneyed but tremendously well done.

Couldn't find a 'Saturday Drinking and Listening to' thread, so this'll have to do.

Sipping some Hobgoblin and surfing through Tom Waits' back catalogue on Youtube. Life ain't that bad you know.
