More Distraction ......

I l-o-v-e all of Edinburgh's fabulous entertainment. Just last night I went to hear Simone Caffari of Naples, Italy (I believe!) and the Badwills play at the Henderson's cellar at St. Johns.
It probably wouldn't have been a bad idea to have brought along an Italian friend, as all the songs were in Italian. But it worked out fine! The music had a folksy hint to it -- aided by a fiddler and a melodian (I thought it was an accordion! But the lead singer definitely called it a "melodian"). The theme of the evening seemed to be storytelling set to music, and strange stories they were! Thankfully the lead singer would roughly translate what he was about to sing. All in all, a very good time!
