Last night went to a wonderful show done by Eric Bogle...fabulous in fact...his stories made me both laugh...and cry....he sang a few songs from his new album (a copy of which is in the auction)...and a few of his older songs...one of the new ones is called As If They Know...about the horses of the Light Brigade...during WWI 53,000 horses were sent off to the war...only one made it back and that was the general's horse...because of quarantine regulations the soldiers were forbidden to take their horses back with them...and in Palestine they felt the Arabs to be too cruel to their animals...so they refused to sell them...instead each man had his best mate shoot their horse...and i guess when the men went to their horses one last time and gave them their final treats...the feeling of the horses was subdued....as if they knew what was going to occur...

He also did some of his classic songs...like No Man's Land..and how the papers reported that Tony Blair's favourite poem is one called Green Fields of France...written by Eric Bogle who was killed in the First World War....he also did And The Band Played Waltzing Matilda...and had everyone rolling in laughter with Little Gomez...in fact he himself was literally all over the stage and breathless from the giggling....

All in all it was a wonderful show...and I found the man to be genuinely very nice and friendly...which was 90 percent of the show.

Where was he in Portland? I'm here in Eugene, and if I'd known I might have been able to get up there.

If any of you are in the NY/NJ/CT area on Nov. 23 he will be giving a concert at the Hurdy Gurdy Folk Music Club


Should asa always be a sellout and a very good show. Best to get advance tickets
