One of the albums I played a track from - the one by Jerry Cahill - is called Armchair Traveller. I guess we on rootsandshoots are studio travellers. Martin and I enjoy travelling far and wide but we enjoy coming home too - and this is reflected in the music we play. Anyway, it was just me tonight as Martin was ill. Get well soon, Martin!
And so to tonight's playlist...
