You should put this post on the "relevance of the forum" thread. This is one of the major reasons I just love this forum. People like you putting clips like this on.

Thoroughly enjoyed it so thank you.

I fully concur. No better place to discover new music than with passionate music lovers (which this forum seems to be full of.

.....and what a wonderfully vibrant clip this is to go with some great vibrant music.

The black man had the blues
No one knew what they was gonna do
But Tchaikovsky had the news...."

For 40 years there have been 5 musicians that I’ve always considered “special” (6 if you count The Beatles). Those ones that, regardless of whoever you’re into at the time, you keep going back to. I love listening to them now as much as I did 40 years ago.

Roy Buchanan, Taj Mahal, Rodrigeous, David Bromberg, Joe McDonald.

I’ve seen the first 4 and I would dearly love to see the last one, Joe McDonald (Country Joe McDonald). His catalogue of music is phenomenal. He’s produced an absolutely amazing array of music styles. His “Fixing to Die Rag” was the anti Vietnam War mantra of the 60/70s. He’s getting on (he was a Woodstock performer) and the chances of me ever seeing him are rapidly diminishing.

So that’s my request – Joe McDonald

I would greatly appreciate it Bluesfest.

Roy Buchanan .
I remember seeing Roy roughly 35 years ago.
A brilliant guitarist (Fender telecaster).
Yes -Special is the right word for Roy
