From Sweden to County Down!

... via Kingswinford. This was rather special!


I happened to come across this video today. Sara Lind from Sweden 'brought the house down' at The Woodman Folk Club in June 2006, with her rendition of 'County Down' by Tommy Sands. I did my best to accompany her. (Playing the Baby Taylor guitar I had in those days.)

Sara was unfamiliar with the folk scene when she got to know our family c.2005. Classically trained and more used to choral music than folk, she took a little persuading to sing this great song by Tommy Sands - popularised by Danu on their album 'The Road Less Travelled' (2003).

As you can see/ hear, Sara 'nailed it'!
