Sorry man, I was being facetious as ever. The classical composer's called Haydn, not this Canadian Hayden fella.

As we're on the subject, I listened to Vaughan Williams' Tallis Fantasia this morning. One of my faves that, so it is...

Jimmy Webb wrote a song called Himmlers Ring, not sure if the nazi/wagner referance is intentional. Lowell George played on the original and also covered it on his only solo effort.

I live in Josef Haydn Strasse. My neighbour thinks it's hilarious that she's "such a fan"

Well it was worth the 143 mile drive to/from Darvel last night. :D
A nice venue , small town hall with spread out tables and candles and a wee bar.
First on was Gabriel Minnikin (from Nova Scotia -once of the Guthries) who played a good set, great guitar picking and fine piano on one track, an incredibly deep voice and some dark songs, the perfect opener!
Some nice 'Alt Country' records before Ten Miles High came on, some of the (very mixed) audience enjoyed them (with one couple dancing) but I thought they were really aweful (IMO). :oops:
Finally the reason for the long trek to the west and Hayden hit the stage, playing solo & with mainly acoustic guitar and harmonica but with piano on a couple of songs, he was fantastic and rewarded the solo effort! He opened with Skyscraper National Park but played songs mainly from his great new Album (Elk Lake Serenade) and a few older songs, nice banter in between songs and he seemed to be enjoying experience as much as most of the crowd. A great cover of 'Dock of the Bay' and a song about his cat (woody) and one of my current favourites 'Don't get down' were some of the highlights. He came back for one encore (and some idiot in the crowd shouted out for 1945 when the song in question was 1939) he was very gracious and said he did not play that one live and at that point he seemed to change his mind & put down his guitar and moved back to the piano for a stunning cover of 'Famous Blue Raincoat' (the last time I heard that played live was by the man -LC 30 years ago in the Usher hall) so a wonderful finish to a great gig.

post scipt. I was that idiot... :oops:
