Blue text are external links, which will open in a new browser window.

Hi all. My ME/CFS has been too bad for me to be able to get the blog out I wanted to do, so I just wanted to say hello and, hopefully, get to know a few more of you in the Comments section below. How are you doing? Do you struggle with health issues, and, if so, what, creatively, do you do to deal with it/them?

COME AND BLOG!

I would also love anyone else with music related stories, or Northeast England stories, poems or songs, to post them here. What Close Encounters Of The Music Legend Kind have you had? Or, how has music – or poetry – changed, saved or inspired your life? I would love to hear, and I’m sure others would too!

I’ve received my first one, which will be a short story from author and article writer, David Calvert. Since it’s a Christmas themed story called Yet In Thy Dark Streets Shineth, I’m going to save it for Christmas Eve. Thanks David!

FOLK FOR FOLK SAKE!

I would love any music artists out there – amateur or professional – to take a song of mine they might like and make it their own. They are all free to use for live performances with a credit only. I just want to get them out there and entertaining (and educating) a wider audience. Please get in touch if you’re interested.

FOLKFINDINGS

On the subject of the above, I want to say a HUGE thank you to the wonderfully talented award winning Somerset folk songwriter and singer, Ange Hardy, for her putting one of my songs – yes, one of MY songs! – into this month’s FolkFindings MixCloud show. This will be Episode 15 that goes out on the 9th November at 9pm (UK time). I am, indeed, honoured. Clicking on the image below will take you to their shows. There is some fantastic folk music played here, so give it a listen. Also have a listen to Ange’s music on SoundCloud by clicking HERE. 

Once again, THANK YOU, and do come and get involved!

Blog No.23 will be a reblog of Blog No.14, which contains my military subject tracks, for Armistice Day and Remembrance Sunday

  1. I do not think I fit here, except to say this is a great idea. Not being from the UK, I cannot share of my stories. Among other things, I’m an illustrator of books and a writer also, but will definitely share Our Christmas posts later…. a book being from my friend. ‘Tales of A Shepherd 2000 Years Ago’, as Christmas approaches. Mak, I being an Empath, take in all illnesses and feelings other’s suffer. My own illness matter not, for others are more important. Right now I’m in mourning for my friend, and you know what I mean, and when I’m down, I write, paint or do as My God Asks. What is posted here from your readers, I will read with great interest, and will do so with great admiration. Love Anne Terri
