Seeing as Ian Anderson has an interest in Asian music and I believe this is an ongoing project how brilliant would it be to see him involved with this at some time in the future?
I think that's a great idea - I think he could play with musicians from different countries, blending his style and producing new music. As long as he doesn't give up the day job - making a new Tull album!
Still going strong. Some details now out of date, gig wise, but 2 good links.
The original line-up of Pentangle - Jacqui McShee, Danny Thompson, John Renbourn, Bert Jansch and Terry Cox - will appear live on Later... With Jools Holland on Tuesday 29 April. The show goes out at 10pm and Pentangle will also feature on the recorded show the following Friday. It's going to be a full year for Jacqui McShee. Not only is her own band, Jacqui McShee's Pentangle, touring in the autumn but she is also appearing with the original 1968 line-up for a series of reunion gigs (see elsewhere on the site).
Jacqui has enjoyed a career spanning more than 40 years but she is really looking forward to being so busy. The autumn tour starts on 5 September and runs til early October, covering Scotland, Wales, the south-east and the far west.
One highlight of the tour will be a show at Hall For Cornwall, the prestigious Truro venue, on 20 September. As usual, the Jacqui McShee's Pentangle autumn tour will feature a support act.

I'm gonna throw you all a curve ball now......I'm sure there's probably not a huge demand for German industrial metal here but I love Rammstein. This is the spectacular Ohne Dich, which is an epic song and IMO could well be the best music video ever too. In todays world of throwaway music and corny videos it gives me a warm fuzzy feeling inside to see that there are still some bands out there who can produce stunning works of art like this.
Okay folks I'm a Jock ! and the old blood is running high today so.........
RUNRIG - hugely popular Scottish /folk/rock band in the 70's/80's(still going ) responsible for reinventing the "granny's highland home on the shortbread tin" type Scottish music imho.

Runrig, nice band who I have not heard in awhile. Memory tells me that their home was/is? the Isle of Skye. They used to be played on a nice radio show of long standing over here called "The Thistle and Shamrock." I dare say they and most other Celtic rockers borrowed a page from Runrig's once neighbor, Ian Anderson, and maybe a second and third one from the rockier elements of Steeleye Span and Fairport Convention. Quite good chefs to be borrowing pages from.
Blimey, other people like Runrig - shock, horror. Seriously, they are a great band and originally were the "house band" on the Isle of Skye. Formed in 1973, their first album was "Runrig Play Gaelic" issued in 1978 and again on CD in 1990 although I haven't read much about them in the past year or so. Maybe I'm looking in the wrong place. Any links anyone?

Right, it's marmite time.....Cardiacs. If there was ever a band that commanded utter devotion or utter loathing it's Cardiacs. If you don't know cardiacs this will either be a revelation or a really bad start to your day.
