I remember when my daughter turned on BGT(?) on the Sunday morning after a wonderful night in Hodgsons at Beverley Folk Fest(Jun 09) and I said to her 'BGT was in Beverley last night, without the cameras and hype' and there was a room full of 'Susan Boyles' - from whom came the most magnificent sound.
That talent is alive and kicking in so many pubs/clubs and festivals and it comes with atmosphere and generally no heartache (WILL I WIN tonight?) It is, to me, one of the best medicines, a therapy of lifted voices joined in harmony and no TV can capture it or the sensation of elevation when voices join in song.
Wow. Saddleworth had it and I'm sure Warwick will too - and wherever you head next. It's a tonic that can't be bottled, and I'm looking forward to the next sip.
Thanks to everyonewho made Hissyfit's Friday night buzz. I (we) had Such a brilliant weekend. La Kelly is well and truly back.
Lots of Love, Hazel.
