beautiful songs by two artists from the British Isles

June 10, 2011

For a few years now I’ve been enjoying the music of Scottish singer, accordianist, and pianist Emily Smith, and Welsh Martyn Joseph.  Here are some links to a few videos of their live performances:

Emily Smith: “Always a Smile” (about her Polish born Gran, Genowefa), “Sunset Hymn“, “Bleacher Lassie O’ Kelvinhaugh” (traditional Scottish), and “The Plooman” (traditional by Robert Burns).

Martyn Joseph: “Kiss the World Beautiful,” “Lonely Like America,” and “United Blues” (an improv while stuck in the Memphis airport).

Who are some of your favorite artists?
