August Critical Mass

Bit damp this month, most people were wearing coats or waterproofs, and apart from this photo at the start my camera stayed in a dry pocket.



However, the mood was surprisingly good despite the disappointing weather.

For everyone who came up and asked what the music was - it was an all female line up of voices, mostly remixed. As far as I can remember the tracks were...

Three from Mari Boine's album Idjagieas, including Vuoi Vuoi Mu. Two from Martyn Bennett's final album, Grit. Move sung by Sheila Stewart and Nae Regrets featuring the voices of Annie Watkins and Edith Piaf. Three from Peggy Seeger off the Broadcaster album Folksploitation - take a look at the video for First Time Ever. Tom's Diner by DNA featuring Suzanne Vega off Tom's Album and a couple off Mari Boine's Remixed album.

Then the song I got asked about several times was Bonny Bunch of Roses off Ragged Kingdom by June Tabor and the Oysterband followed by Barbara Dickson, Witch of the Westmerlands off Time & Tide.
