May I introduce to you Dame Cleo Laine.
I had the pleasure of playing host to her and her husband John Dankworth when they gave a concert in my town.
One of my friends was at university with John and when they visited here he asked if I would be kind enough to host a dinner party at my place as he just lived in a small flat. I jumped at the chance.
Cleo Laine has a voice range of 6 octaves, a very impressive talent. I am forever thankful to Doctor Richards for giving me the op pertunity to meet one of my most favourite performers.

Sad day for me Goss Keith Emerson was one of my most favourite keyboard players, he had great talent.
I am at a loss to understand why so many talented people choose to take their own life.

more than once  regarding  the progress one makes in long term thslpay/anaryeis, that it’s one step forward and two steps backward.   Instead of being depressing, that notion actually is rather consoling to me.

Hi Podds and all.

As you know the Cheers family have a special interest in A Capella - so just their voices, no back ground music, no musical instruments  except for their voices and a pitch pipe.

A favourite group of mine are the UW Madhatters Their rendition of Chasing Cars is still my favourite

pentatonix. Remember all the sounds are their voices - no backing tracks - these guys do on occasion use a Cello - also brilliant

I still love this girl. It was she that inspired me to get a rock violin and do what she does.

She's a bit loopy, but gosh she can make that fiddle sing

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dxwPdWXL70g

and of course this song by the late but still great Michael Jackson.

This song was my husband's choice for walk down the aisle music (and Eternal Flame by the Bangles at the father/betrothed handover at the end of the aisle) at our wedding almost 24 years ago.
