This is Hermie Longalong's first fundraising Concert and I was delighted when he asked me to Host it for him. Hermie has put together a great line-up of talented musicians and performers.

All proceeds from profits will go to the two charities.

Here's a blast from the past, when Hermie and Paul were playing along side me in the Terry Neason Band. This version of Lady Madonna by the Beatles, was inspired and played on this video, by the late great Neil Hay on bass. I was also joined by Jim Hannah and Gordon Dougall:keyboards and Mike Travis on drums. These guys are blazing!!!

What am I doing? The Birdie Song! Learning, laughing and loving it.


Time management will probably fly out the window, however, there's a wealth of inspirational items of excellence, interest and intrigue to be had out there.

Sandro Russo - Liszt’s Consolation no. 3 - performed on Liszt's 1862 Bechstein Piano

Play it again Sandro...

My chum, Sandro Russo, not so much tickles the ivories, more of a beautiful caress. :+>
Sandro sent me an email sharing two excerpts from a DVD he recently recorded on the historical 1862 Bechstein Piano which belonged to Franz Liszt. I in turn, wish to share it with you.
