Glad you liked them REn. I dont care much for Fairport Convention but his solo stuff is great

Steve Bates said...

Good voice; excellent guitar work. The ensemble number may not be your favorite, but Stella will really appreciate the blues-harp (harmonica) solo in the middle. Thanks for posting this, jams.

My hippie/folkie wanna be daughter, Sunbum, and I are sitting here enjoying Beeswing. The other two didn't do it for me lyrically, but the guitar playing and melody is simply amazing. Sunbum says he has very nimble fingers. I've never heard of him before now. Is he Irish, by any chance?

He is a very good guitarist ewbl.. Beeswing is a great song, one of my favourites. I do like the other two as well

He is English. He started in a folkish band called fairport convenstion in the late 60s. He is well worth checking out
