Merlyn Bruce is making music, videos and a youtube channel …..Here’s a preview. Like it – I dare you 🙂
Video Archive 58 – Revolution – recorded at Madison Square Gardens with the Thompson Twins. Oh what glorious days sharing Keyboard duties with TinTwin the robot. There are a few frames in the second verse of a young black haired twinette playing piano and loving every minute! Look out for Felicia M Collins too ..
Video Archive 54 – King for a Day – Here’s a video of the Thompson Twins. We filmed it in Ireland – one of the scariest things was climbing up the scaffolding to perform under the rose window – in full nuns regalia – Ah what a life 🙂
Video archive 50 – Deben Collective Rehearsing for WAME
Video Archive 45 – Dancing in the key of life – Steve Arrington – Something to lift your spirits with a song I wish I HAD written! – What a jam and yes that pink haired punkette at the back is me attempting to keep up with the groove. Great days in the 80s on the British Soul Train with Shirley Lewis, Sylvia Mason, Luis Jardim et al.
Deben Collective – Clarissa Vincent myself and Merlyn Bruce playing jazz imaginings with loops and stuff Saturday 8th August at the Woodbridge Art & Music Event in the park . . . watch this space! There will be videos coming!
Video Archive 29 – Waltz of the Waters
Woke up to find a picture of the late David Schnaufer staring at me from Facebook so of course this morning has been memories of dulcimer, David and revisiting roots music of Tennessee.
Found this lovely performance of ‘Waltz of the Waters’ from Dulcimer Day 2009 performed by Zada Law and Kort Nygard Co-written by legendary Townes Van Zandt and David Schnaufer who asked me to write the bridge and so I was very happy to complete this beautiful song which we recorded on the Delcimore album
298 unique listeners from 29 countries to my shows and stream on Radio JaNa this weekend .. that’s pretty good going … thanks everyone!
According to my Carousel Flashback – it was a year ago we did the Petta Fiesta Songwriting camp – That was a very nice weekend indeed … and looking forward to meeting everyone again this year!
