At this time of year I should have been at Mill Road Winter Fair in Cambridge where, a while ago, I encountered the young woman on the right, Becky Langan, playing her guitar in the street. At first I was mesmerised by her sheer dexterity as she attacked the strings in all kinds of unfathomable ways - my photo is supposed to give you some idea of her unconventional approach. Then I stood back and just enjoyed the shimmering music that brightened a dull and chilly afternoon.
Hearing her video on YouTube the other evening transported me right back there. Give it a listen - I guarantee that if won't be what you expect....
Hurriyah, the title of the piece, means freedom in Arabic.
(I recommend clicking on the little box at the bottom-right of the video for the full wide-screen experience!).
