The Heb/Celt Festival
In 2010 the Hebridean Celtic Festival announced the inauguration of its very own 'Hall of Fame' to mark its 15th anniversary.
HebCelt has won a number of awards and plaudits over the years, ranging from being MG ALBA Scots Trad Music Event of the Year, to the description by the Daily Telegraph as one of the top festivals in the UK
Bernie, you know that is much too easy for me. Therefore I will leave it for 24 hours to see who else grabs it. Pretty good song too. Having said that I cannot think of another song off the top of my head that includes Mozambique, not so far from Kenya if I remember right, which means hell could be making itself known right now, some of the finest beaches in the world if I remember right by word of a long ago Kenyan/English girlfriend. On the other hand were I to google songs about Mozambique the result could be so very obscure that no one would get it, so probably a good choice.
So Ray, you will appreciate the local parody song, replacing Mozambique with Walnut Creek...pretty much thrashes Walnut Creek as part of 'Negativeland'.....most of the kids in the Gilman scene came from that part of CoCo County...Concord, walnut Creek, I think the Green Day boys hail from Crockett and I know Metallica ( not Gilman scene) lived in my current domicile...El Cerrito
That is funny most esteemed. I really will be a little surprised if I end up being the one to answer this, and maybe a little very lower case disapointed. With one or two notable exceptions one of the few pieces I can think of by this guy that is sort of a party song, easily merits a silly hat. And no I suppose it would not make his 50 most well known songs, but in saying much more than that I might be giving it away. That pretty well spells out that we are talking legend. It really is a good little tune, just slightly out of character, even for a semi chameleon. Walnut Creek, in my 2 short forays out there as a resident I can only recall being in the town once, for a job interview at a grocery store in 77 that came to naught. It strikes me as one of the few, and possibly only spots in the Bay Area that is relatively "normal" from the perceptions of most of the rest of the USA, fairly common if more upscale America, not something I would say of anywhere else out there I can think of. May not even be that unusual to find Republicans there, but still, doubtless alot of good folks who may not want some of the influences rife throughout the Bay Area, which I can totally respect.

and a Tull connection possibly too? no doubt there is somewhere

I had the great pleasure of meeting Paul Moore a couple of nights ago in a music session in town.
Paul - the travelling minstrel - is an Essex born boy who has been playing the ukelue for over thirty years and travels the world with his one man band promoting his Ukuleles for Peace organisation and it's principles.
Paul has a background of working in the finance markets where he was very successful but as he puts it very unfulfilled - he threw the towel in and never looked back.
He moved to Galilee over thirty years ago (via the kibbutz route) married and settled. He has seen many changes there and everywhere he roams.
Great bloke - great craic.
....combines his love for the ukulele (a small and easy to learn 4 string instrument) and his experience with children to create Ukuleles For Peace.
The goal of Ukuleles for Peace is to bring Jewish and Arab children together to play in an orchestra with ukuleles, kazoos and other fun instruments. Paul works with the students once a week in their own schools, and then brings them together for performances. The children sing in Hebrew, Arabic and English. The hope is that playing together will create further opportunities for communal activities, and that parents and members of the communities will get involved in the program."
