Mr Browne, Mr Brown? and....LUKA BLOOM!!

This one snuck up on me.
It's hard to believe it is almost that time of year again
The East Coast Blues and Roots Festival. I heard a DJ on the radio mention it for the first time a couple of days ago. He said with a line up like Jackson Browne, Taj Mahal and
LUKA BLOOM
playing there, you had better get your tickets early.
I love LUKA BLOOM it's good news
I just went and checked their web site.
James Brown is also appearing....hhhmmm, just had a thought. Daniel Johns is a big James Brown fan...you never know.
I'm formulating a fantasy already, Dan and Nat and Christy Moore and his wife are in the crowd....you never know.
The full line up hasn't been anounced yet, but it can only get better.
So I'm praying Jackson Browne and Luka Bloom are on the same day. I am thinking of buying the 5 day pass. It is cheaper that way, but I think the prospect of 5 days of being outdoors grooving to music could be a bit exhausting....we'll see.
Luka has so many beautiful songs of his own, but I love his cover versions. He gives songs such beautiful treatments.



If anyone is interested, JJJ is broadcasting live from the Big Day Out in Sydney from 2 pm today. Someone from Metallica is coming in for a chat, plus lots of the other bands. I listened to Wayne from the Flaming Lips being interviewed yesterday. He was so funny, talking about how he got into performing music and some of the places he gets ideas from. He was very laid back and funny.

he surely is..he's the main reason I want to go.
to buy a season ticket or not to buy a season ticket?
that is the question

hmmm, that pic of Wayne lost a lot of clarity and colour, sorry. The bigger version of it is a great shot.

Buy a ticket
Buy a ticket
Buy a ticket

The fact that it coincides with your birthday is a sign

Lucinda Williams and Steve Earle - I love them both

thanks for the encouragement fah and aralitia
yeah..I think I should go.
The festival is almost within walking distance of my ma's place. A free shuttle bus pulls up right at her front door. I know what my dad would say ..."come and stay...for a week!"

Luka Bloom is the younger brother of Christy Moore. I used to hear him on the radio and think it was Christy. A friend gave me a mixture of a couple of his CD's..."Acoustic Motorbike" "Keeper of the Flame" and "Between The Mountains and the Sea".
Such delicate power.
The beauty and the pain just gently flow from him..another Irish beautiful voice.
Speaking of which...pennyblack aren't breaking up, just taking a rest from the road to concentrate on song-writing and recording
YAY!!!
a secret is a thing you tell one other person

Yesh....I'm excited...again

Sir Bob is going to be there.

I couldn't go see him the last time he came through town.

I hate when work interferes with my concert going life

I did the math.

100 tickets = 1 divorce

So unless you buy 100 tickets I think you will be ok

Question:

Is there a live Luka Bloom album? One of my co-workers listens to him a lot and has lots of live stuff that I've tried to download, but can't seem to find.

There was once an album review for Luka Bloom and it said that for the contest of the most beautiful voice ever there would be 3 contenders: Luka Bloom, Roger Whitaker and Barry White. (I only heard a few songs from White so I am curious to hear the other two)

The guy who gave me the shhhh...burnt mixture CD of Luka's stuff...god I love it!!..... asked me a week or two ago if I was going to get the live Luka Bloom CD he had seen at Big W. I don't know Luka's catalogue, but I was certainly interested. I was in town on Saturday and looked through alllll their CD's ( there's not that many) I couldn't find it
so the mystery continues....sorry I can't help.

I never thought of Roger Whitaker as a great singer . hmmmm.
I am almost...almost on the verge of buying a ticket. 5 days is a lot of music and a lot of time to be away from home and hub. I realise I have never done that before...and the crowd.hmmmm.

But what about U2, there seems to be some stirrings in their camp...will they or won't they and if they do will they come to Australia?
searching for answers from the great beyond......maybe beyonce knows.
