Welcome to the RootsoftheWorld blog!
It is still in it's infancy but this little beauty will be offering you my update on the World Music, Folk and Roots scene on Tyneside and the North East in particular! My name is DJ Traveller on the Tyne and I am real keen on the music. What I lack in technical knowledge I make up for in enthusiasm!
I'll be updating you regarding what's going on in particular at the Brandling Villa pub , South Gosforth, Newcastle http://www.brandlingvilla.co.uk/ , where I do a monthly World Music Night but also talking about other stuff including where you can hear our great music both live and on the radio/net etc!
Now if you don't live in the northeast of England I am sure there will still be something hear for you so stay tuned.
Also under development is a Pod cast where I'll be playing the sounds I am featuring at the Brandling Villa and keeping you up to date with gigs!
So lots to look forward to!
I'll leave you today with my CD recommendation of the month: "Aye"
by the late Martyn Bennett...Scottish roots meets electronic
beats..worth every penny!
I recommend you get it from at the fab specialist retailer "Coda Music"....as good as Amazon are...there heart is not in the music like it is for this business:http://www.codamusic.co.uk/
Bye for now and good listening!
