By now all of you who check out my blog know

Michele and Romeo from my previous posts and their regular slot at the Green Note

and Ren Harvieu, who usually joins them at some stage

but this time they invited John Moore, who I remember when he was in the Black Box Recorder, even though he was also in the Jesus and the Mary Chain, but I never really listened to them.

Girls to the Front

with Miri, one of the organisers,

and RoseRed and her butterflies, the other organiser of the evening

Rotem, and the fabulous Canadian singer who came to sing with a couple of the acts at the night (but is shortly leaving London, so everybody was a bit sad on this great evening)

Anjana Vasan took some time off from acting and came to sing a set for us

Ny Oh from New Zealand did her bit

and Martha Hill (who was the only one to bring her whole band with her) brought the evening to the end (and I am happy to report that she commented that my photos were lush)

One year on...

 ...and it hasn't got any easier for the people

nor has it got any easier for the fire fighters

but the people are there to remember

 and support

and give their love 

to all who need it

and we are determined to keep on marching ....

My brain

 is a bit muddled up

and it can be a very dark place, even on a sunny afternoon;

lately it has been playing a game where it is trying to trap my body in a small coffin like frame, so I can't move.

David Rovics

 did his Names and Addresses song in the week leading up to the one year anniversary of the Grenfell Tower tragedy. It was weird to think that the tragedy touched someone on the other side of the Atlantic enough to write a song about it, but that is what the world has become... a small place in which we are all connected, for better or for worse... 
 he was joined by some people from the Islington folk club

each doing a song, so there were too many of them to show you the photos of all of them here, but I am sure you can find them elsewhere...

A very short

(or did he start early?) but sweet performance by an overly sensitive megalomaniac (his words, not mine)
