Hey, That's My Kind Of Music! (4)
Amazing Blondel Alleluia
The late sixties/early seventies were one of music's golden periods. I saw the Amazing Blondel give a concert in Lincoln cathedral around that time. They were a local band for me. They came from Scunthorpe - just up the road. They took an age to tune up their lutes in the chilly cathedral. But when they'd done so - wow! Their music is uncategorisable: progressive medieval, Renaissance revival, folk? It doesn't really matter. It's magic to me, and reminds me of my youth. When I checked out YouTube, I was glad to see they were still touring over 30 years later. The video below was shot in 2004 in Norway. But where's all that hair gone? Hope you enjoy.
