Hello Everyone - Welcome back to NetRhythms,

Turn your sound up LOUD!

It's a typical ENGLISH SUMMER's day and the weather outside calls for Wellington boots. The following YouTube clip is from Perpetuum Jazzile (from Slovenia). They use only hands and feet - and you can get the thrill of summer weather - all from the comfort of your computer chair!

Another reminder that Summer is here is the upcoming FAIRPORT'S CROPREDY CONVENTION. The Irish artist, MARC CARROLL, has recently done a version of Matty Groves. You can view it at the following link.

CHRIS SMITHER's new CD Time Stands Still will be out in September and it's as good as anything he's ever recorded (NetRhythms has them all!). "Mixing up elements of old-time Lightening Hopkins licks, fervent folk finger-picking, and glorious southern delta sojourns, Smither is an original American storytelling master whose emergence in the early 70s heralded the arrival of a major player on the scene who, over the last twenty or so years has really carved his own niche for quality, lovingly-crafted songwriting and performing." Watch the video of the making of the album - by Kathy Wittman
