The Burning Bush
I always tell people who don't know what a blog is that a blog is like a diary. Well here's a diary-type entry. I googled "Folk London" this evening and then went here then here, then here and here. It was at that last here that I saw The Burning Bush tonight. They are a six piece, inter alia, klezmer band. I'd never been to the Walthamstow Folk Club before but it turned out the a friend of mine, Russ, runs it. He asked me to sing a song in the second half which I did. I sang "The Song of Martin Fontash" by Leon Rosselson. I wanted to sing a song with a Jewish theme. I'll post the lyrics tomorrow when I'm not tired. Then the band came back and they're well worth a listen. So listen.
