Chimes of Freedom Flashing

The UK’s Point Based Visa System continues to be mis-applied to artists and academics visiting for a short term, even a single concert/event. This problem is highlighted in a new podcast by Rocca Gutteridge, produced by Clare Carswell @ Without Borders Allison Crowe’s song “Immersed” is included with this show. A complementary blog posting is @ Why Is Britain Treating Artists Like Criminals?

Fire

Had Allison Crowe been born in a different era, she’d have set her piano alight at Monterey, or, maybe, added her colander to the Crazy World of Arthur Brown. Here’s “Fire“, which bridges Allison’s rock/grunge band roots and her solo singer-songwriter mystic. A song for Heather and you :)
