On The Fiddle

There was some lunchtime live music today at Fopp, in the form of folk singer Seth Lakeman.

Fopp is a local record store that is a real Aladdin's cave of music, films and books at sensible, and sometimes bargain prices. They sometimes invite musicians to play, but usually it is around 5pm, so I sadly  have to miss it, being still at work. So it was a treat to see and listen to some at lunchtime.

The shop was quite crowded, by both fans and the curious. Not forgetting the ordinary customers.

He was meant to start at 1pm, but arrived late, due to traffic problems. He apologised, took out his guitar and started to play. as you can see, he also plays the fiddle. I took this shot while he was playing a version of his song 'The Courier'.

Here's what it sounds like on his latest album 'Word of Mouth'.
