The F Spot Live Sessions 25 - Michelle Holding and Bonz

The F Spot Live Sessions 25 - Michelle Holding and Bonz

Playing tracks by

Daria Kulesh and Michelle Holding and Bonz.

The F Spot Live Sessions

The show is made in the Folkstock Records studio - a cosy summer house in the village of Walkern in the county of Hertfordshire, England. In an informal and relaxing environment, emerging local artists, already making waves on the national folk/acoustic scene, chat about their musical journeys so far and perform live. Each week, the host Daria Kulesh showcases a new artist.

Dynamic duo of multi-instrumentalists, Michelle Holding and Bonz (http://www.michelleholding.com/), are a joy to listen and talk to. They will engage you with colourful life stories and an eclectic set ranging from knee-slapping Americana to creepy and raw tales of selkies via Jake Thackray and Woody Guthrie. There's a lot of instrumental variety, too - with dobro, concertina, banjo, guitar and harmonies. Have fun listening!

Relistened to this and loved it even more the 2nd time. I have now bought both albums by Michelle and Bonz and also written a positive review of this show and also of their 'Seeds are sown ' album which I listened to soon after the cds arrived. I shall listen to their current album ' 11 Crosses ' soon. Michelle has read my review and we are now FB friends. I hope to get to see them play live if and when they come to the SW of England where I live. I am really impressed with their musicianship and singing, and Daria made them feel very relaxed and so as ever it was a lighthearted hour of music and friendly banter, though there was a few minutes of serious conversation when Michelle spoke about her illness which is now in remission thankfully. I listen every week to the F Spot Sessions and Daria is a great host and knows what questions to ask to each guest. This show in particular was of great interest due to their genres of music and instruments they both played and I learned a lot too, such as what the word 'dobro' means in Russian! So to sum up I can say this show was " Dobro, dobro " which translates as " Lovely, lovely ".
