Pete Molinari - dapper troubador
The Cohen brothers rank amongst my favourite filmmakers and loved their affectionate take on the 1960s Greenwich Village folk scene, Inside Llewyn Davis. Someone else who holds that time and vision close to his heart is the dapper Pete Molinari. Pete’s Wild Hare Club gig was just when he was beginning to make a name for himself and since then he’s gone on to bigger things, cutting some great records, singing with Yoko at Meltdown and even getting the thumbs up from ‘The Boss’.

Of course, some of the best Wild Hare moments take place round the kitchen table at WHC HQ and one of the best of the best was hearing Pete sing Goodnight Irene, the most tender and beautiful rendition of one of those timeless songs.

Patti Smith - True to the Trail

Looking forward to the live stream event by Patti Smith at 3pm EST / New York time today (ticket details here). I didn't have much pre-planned this year (just as well hey?) but had bought tickets for one of her scheduled Albert Hall shows and so this is a stop-gap.

This photo was taken in July 2014 when I tracked her down after spotting a concert poster in Tromso, Norway. I was in town with some colleagues to join the Greenpeace Esperanza for an expedition to Svalbard
