Born in 1860, Jane Addams is known as the mother of social work.She founded the famous Hull House Chicago, which revolutiozed the field of social work.But the album is best explained by Hugh himself…….. No gypsy woman said anything to my mother when I was born and there’s no hellhound on my trail, as far as I can judge.Let this record show that I am a white, middle-class Englishman, openly trespassing on the music and myth of the American south.If that weren’t bad enough, I’m also an actor: one of those pampered ninnies who hasn’t bought a loaf of bread in a decade and can’t find his way through an airport without a babysitter. Worst of all, I’ve broken a cardinal rule of art, music, and career paths: actors are supposed to act, and musicians are supposed to music. You don’t buy fish from a dentist, or ask a plumber for financial advice, so why listen to an actor’s music? If you care about provenance and genealogy, then you should try elsewhere, because I have nothing in your size.I wouldn’t be surprised to find that I’ve got some Chinese characters tattooed on my arse. I started piano lessons at the age of 6 with Mrs Hare.Conservative grassroots activists who support President Trump and are angry at the Senate's failure to pass a bill repealing Obama Care will have their first opportunity to send a message to Washington in next Tuesday's Alabama U. Special prosecutor Robert Mueller has impaneled a grand jury to investigate, well anything he wants to about Donald Trump.The Founding Fathers set up a system of checks and balances.
So, it is well within the authority of the legislative branch to attempt to tie the president's hands when it comes to sanctions on Russia.
Spiritually inspired by similar genre albums like Ry Cooder’s ‘Buena Vista Social Club’ and T-Bone Burnett’s ‘O’ Brother Where Art Thou’ soundtrack, Hugh’s ‘Let Them Talk’ recordings bring together an extraordinary selection of heritage tracks, renowned musicians and vocal legends to champion this much neglected body of work.
Hugh drives the whole album on piano and vocals and is joined in the studio by the ‘Queen of New Orleans’ herself, Irma Thomas, blues piano and horns supremo Allen Toussaint, vocal legend Sir Tom Jones and in an especially momentous collaboration on ‘After You’ve Gone’ by his lifelong hero Dr. Released on May 9th in Europe, the album launch will be supported by live shows in London, Paris and Berlin and a television special following Hugh’s musical journey to New Orleans and featuring the performances of much of the album filmed at Kingsway Studios in the French Quarter along with Hugh’s band and his incredible collaborators. I’ve never eaten grits, cropped a share, or ridden a boxcar.
She was a nice woman, probably; but in my twisted childhood memory I have cast her as a warty thug who bullied me across the hot coals of do-re-mi.
I stuck it for about three months, grinding through Elementary Piano Book One until we reached Swanee River by Stephen Foster. Born in Pennsylvania, he never saw the actual Suwannee River – nor did he set foot in Florida, which adopted the song as its state anthem in 1935.
