Never heard of Rhiannon Giddens before but the YouTube algorithm put this in front of me.

It is stunning.

Just interrupting the flood temporarily with an old geezer who still knows how to strut his stuff.

Stay well!

I'll see your Paul and raise you a Liam, singing it live:

Not so long ago in the middle of one of many Hothouse Flowers gigs I've witnessed, Liam inexplicably sang 'Amazing Grace' with no musical accompaniment. It was absolutely incredible. 

Bono once said that Liam has "the most soulful voice of any living white man".

Radio 2 listeners may have just thought this was a jingle but it's a fine piece of music in its own right.

New album time. Unfollow the Rules by Rufus Wainwright. One of the few artists whose work I still buy on CD rather than just downloading, and listen from start to finish in the order the songs are presented, no shuffling. Enjoying it very much. Had tickets for a concert in York in October n'all, now punted into mid-2021 for obvious reasons.

After Tweeting him (and getting speedy and helpful reply), I recently found out that the BBC cricket correspondent Henry Moeran is indirectly related to this very fine and underrated composer.
