    Richard Thompson-Dad's gonna kill me ,by Ioccalice The song was singled out for praise by critics and featured prominently in Thompson's live performances in early 2007. This song's lyrics make extensive use of U.S. military slang (the "Dad" of the title is GI slang for "Baghdad"), and convey the thoughts and feelings of an uneasy U.S. soldier stationed in Iraq. It was subsequently used on the closing montage of the first episode of the third season of Sons of Anarchy. Richard John Thompson OBE (born 3 April 1949) is a British songwriter, guitarist and recording and performing musician. Thompson was awarded the Orville H. Gibson award for best acoustic guitar player in 1991. Similarly, his songwriting has earned him an Ivor Novello Award and, in 2006, a lifetime achievement award from BBC Radio.Artists who have recorded Thompson's compositions include such diverse talents as Del McCoury, R.E.M., Bonnie Raitt, Christy Moore, David Gilmour, Mary Black, Elvis Costello, Marshall Crenshaw, The Corrs, Sandy Denny, June Tabor, Joel Fafard, Maria McKee, Shawn Colvin, Norma Waterson, Martin Carthy, Nanci Griffith, Graham Parker, The Pointer Sisters, Maura O'Connell, Los Lobos, John Doe, Greg Brown, Bob Mould, Barbara Manning, Loudon Wainwright III, The Futureheads, Jeff Lang, Dinosaur Jr., David Byrne, and The Blind Boys of Alabama.

And who's that stranger walking in my dreams And whose that stranger cast a shadow 'cross my heart And who's that stranger, I dare speak his name Must be old Death a-walking Must be old Death a-walking Dad's Gonna Kill Me 7 muzzle monkeys standing in a row Standing waiting for The Sandbox to blow Sitting targets in the wild west show Nobody loves me here Dad's Gonna Kill Me Another angel got his wings this week Charbroiled with his own Willie Pete Nobody's dying if you speak double-speak Dad's Gonna Kill Me

        Every Tuesday since 1974, Clyde Maness has opened the doors of the Maness Pottery and Music Barn for the public to enjoy southern cooking, live music, and a vibrant social scene. Clyde, a man with a heart as big as his personality, has lived a prolific life collecting many stories to tell. This documentary was a result of a course project at the Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University. At the beginning of the course, Anytown, USA, filmmaker and instructor Randolph Benson visited the town of Robbins, NC to collect topics for each student to choose from. The students then had 10 weeks to film and edit before the first screening. The Maness Pottery and Music Barn is located on the outskirts of Robbins in Carthage, NC.

          ༺•☾✭ FILMED BY CARBIE WARBIE! ✭☽•༻ http://www.carbiewarbie.com My ACE photographs of Port Fairy Folk Festival is being hosted on the popular Aussie music website, http://www.thedwarf.com.au MY REVIEW OF PORT FAIRY FOLK FESTIVAL, which features this video of Richard Thompson: http://www.thedwarf.com.au/live_review/20741/2015-port-fairy-folk-festival For more information about Port Fairy Folk Festival: http://www.portfairyfolkfestival.com I was expecting a gentle quiet folk acoustic performance from Richard Thompson. I was completely blown away when he arrives with an electric trio consisting of bassist Taras Prodaniuk and drummer Michael Jerome. Thompson is an extraordinary guitarist, as he let's his red Fender fly. The highlight of his set was when Thompson performed his new song called 'Guitar Heroes', where he plays a tribute of his influences that includes Les Paul, Django Reinhardt, Charlie Christian, Chuck Berry and Hank Marvin of The Shadows.

                Winner of the Audience Award at the Mill Valley Film Festival, this documentary by Chris Simon and Maureen Gosling is a portrait of a Bay Area treasure: roots-music icon Chris Strachwitz, founder of Arhoolie Records and an archaeologist of deep American music. For the last 50 years, he has carried his tape recorder to sharecrop shacks and roadside honkytonks, bringing Cajun music out of Louisiana, Tex-Mex out of Texas, blues out of the country. We join him for a hip-shaking stomp from Texas to New Orleans, from Cajun country to Appalachia, on a passionate quest to preserve the musical soul of America. Featuring Ry Cooder, Bonnie Raitt, Flaco Jimenez, Michael Doucet, Richard Thompson, The Pine Leaf Boys and others. Directors: Chris Simon, Maureen Gosling. (US 2013) 92 min.
