Waiting

Phillip Daligan is the second songwriter to grace our podcast site from across the big pond, although he has been in America for about ten years where he is working as a carpenter and living on an island off the Portland Coast of Maine.

I was lucky enough to capture this song during one of Phillip's visits to Camp Dances with Armadillos at the Kerrville Folk Festival this year. 

Phillip's songs are stories which may or may not be true, but are influenced by things that he has seen or done, including experiences from his life near the sea and a stint in the merchant marines. 

This song, entitled Waiting, is a beautiful love ballad about that which is lost and the promise of that which is to come. He is accompanied by Robert Lindsay Nathan on lead acoustic guitar.

Memory Waltz

The other day I tried to think back and remember when I first met Robert Wilson and I drew a blank. I remember him in the background of one of the Enclave events that were held in South Austin in the early part of the decade, and more recently hanging out with us at Camp Dances with Armadillos during the 2006 Kerrville folk festival. And maybe a few chance meetings in between. 

But I didn't really get to know him until this year when I was able to spend 11 days at the Kerrville folk festival, where we had the opportunity to swap a bevy of lies, songs and stories. I also became more familiar with his music, which includes a song he wrote about Jack Rabbit Road in Houston, Texas. It"s a location that I'm fairly familiar with, having spent the last two years of high school there. There's a story about how a coyote got hung from our high school bonfire, but I won't go there in this article. You who are familiar with Jackrabbit Road will know about the coyotes. 

Robert is kind of soft spoken at times, but he has a booming baritone voice that really comes out in the tune "Memory Waltz". This version was recorded at camp Dances with Armadillos during the 2007 Kerrville Folk Festival. He is accompanied by yours truly (Robert Lindsay Nathan) on guitar and a host of campmates singing the chorus. 

Thanks to Carol Peterson for the photograph (Gary if this is really yours, let me know, I never know who to give credit too and usually it's wrong).

COMIN' 2 GECHA!

We are happy to bring to Podcast listeners Stuart Reily, our first songwriter from accross the big pond.

Stuart's interest in music began at school age when he convinced his mum that he 'really' needed that guitar. He went on to play in several bands when he lived and worked in South London  from 1986 to 1998. It was during this time that Stuart embarked upon a musical journey that gave him a solid grounding in song writing and afforded him the opportunity to work with Billy Kuy (Mike Berry & the Outlaws) and Brian Parker (co-writer of Unit 4+2's No1 hit "Concrete & Clay"). One of Stuart's compositions was also reviewed very favourably by Russell Ballard.

In mid 1998, Stuart withdrew from the music scene when he emigrated to South Africa and took on the responsibilities of fatherhood and husbandry! In 2000, Stuart returned to the UK (with his family) and set about re-establishing himself as a composer & songwriter.

The vocalist performing on this Podcast is credited to Jasone Jones. For more information on Stuart, the composer of "Comin' 2 Getcha!", follow the link to www.stuart-reilly.co.uk
