There was a 13 year old kid shredding guitar at the Olympics closing. Yahoo news dug up a clip of him at 10:

I love the simple piano score that starts and ends Saving Mr Banks.  So perfect, I want to fall asleep to each night.

I came across a couple mentions of Loreena McKennitt in old Creative Corner threads during the editing process so far so I decided to give her a try and holy fucking shit how did I not know about her before now? I've started working my way through her full discography via Google Play Music but this is the first song I clicked a link to from here and still might be my favorite:

The Gaelic tradition does amazing things with voices and lends itself to modern updating better than almost any other tradition. There's a lot of other stuff like this out there. A LOT.

I've listened to a bit of Celtic and/or New Age-y folk over the years but for whatever reason hadn't come across Loreena McKennitt before. I like the genre though, yeah. Smile A friend from another forum got me into Omnia for a while a number of years ago.

I like that! I wasn't expecting such traditional music coming out of the Child Catcher. Nice slow fade from traditional into hard driving Gaelic Rock.

That sounds more like mid-century Latin pop than traditional to me. But I like it. I also like the dynamic of a young woman being backed by a bunch of gray-hairs. We tend to forget that old folks can jam along with the young just fine.

I like McKennitt too; she shows up in some of the music lists I listen to.

Ringo that's a good-looking live-show picture! Most of them are so blurry and dark that one can't make out details. It does look like you're quite taken with the performer.

The clothes give me flashbacks to Soultrain. But the music and dancing has a different feel.

So I find out that Friday night is basically party time at the Metropolitan Museum of Art: they have special programs and stay up relatively late. This friday they had a Korean art exhibit and Korean music.

So this young lady would start in another room with something which looked and vaguely sounded like a trumpet, but was actually a very loud reed instrument with the reed entirely in her mouth. She'd start playing, then process in.



Then she'd move to another part of the room, and everyone would dutifully follow her, and pull out this thing that looked like a pennywhistle, but was a low and throaty reed instrument:



Then she'd promenade to another part of the room, and everyone who had worked to get near the front found themselves in back, and all the cut-ups in the back would suddenly have to be on their best behavior as she did her mouth organ:



She pulled this trick twice in two different performances. Clearly a very troublesome young woman.

Then somebody would spout up "and if anyone came for the poetry reading just follow me over here" and we'd escape off to hear the piano, violin and accordian trio do tango music in the main gallery.
