dave allen video jukebox

Dave Allen (1936-2005) was one of the funniest stand up comedians ever. Always a great storyteller, his only props were a cigarette and a glass of whiskey. Enjoy some of his funniest clips from You Tube.

abigail washburn video jukebox

Abigail Washburn is a great singer and banjo player. She is equally comfortable singing in Chinese or English. Perhaps the only time she is uncomfortable is when she is without her banjo which she considers to be a required fashion accessory.

Abigail Washburn is currently a member of the Uncle Earl and Sparrow Quartet's band.
She has also performed with the Canadian Duhks band.

The musical group Uncle Earl is not what you might think. It's an all female band that plays a lot of old-tyme music with a contemporary flair.

I saw these g'Earls, as they like to be called, in concert at the Freight and Salvage Coffee House in Berkeley recently. They all are very talented ladies who can write, sing, play instruments and even clog on occasion.

Speaking of clogging, checkout the first video below. It's a recently released one showing the g'Earls participating in some mean Kung Fu clogging!

If you enjoy these videos, I'm sure you would like Uncle Earl's new Waterloo,Tennessee CD

The sixties were a decade of great social upheaval. It was also a decade when some music was created.

Revisit these times with some of the best music that came from this era.
