Lazy Blogging, Part 15.

Not been posting much recently. Sorry. I just haven't seen, read, done or drank anything worth blogging about. Life has been ploddingly predictable. I'm sure you didn't want to read about me painting the bay windows of our house.

Anyway - here's Jake Thackray. He's a bit forgotten these days, but he was one of those rare singer/songwriters who had the gift of writing songs that were at the same time beautiful and funny.

Ian had the pleasure of seeing Jake at the Cambridge Folk Festival in the early 80's. Pitty there was a thunderstorm while he was on stage causing his voice to be lost in the downpour hitting the marquee roof.

Ah, I'd love to have seen him. One of these days I'm going to go to "Jakefest".
