What a delightful set by Roly. First time I've heard him sing , thouroughly enjoyed it.
He reminds me of an American guitarists /singer who's name I can't recall but I think played the corner house way back when..
Thanks Roly for putting it together.

Yes, really delightful, and I've just heard part 1 so far. Looking forward to the others. I was singing along as Roly is singing at my pitch.

Steve Andrews (on F/b). said...

And this, folks, is why Roly is, for me at least, the best guitarist/accompanist around. Quality and class.

Alan Smith said...

Well Done Roly. How the heck do you get better as you grow a little older.

Roly Veitch said...

Hello Ron, Ann, Steve and Alan. Thanks for such nice comments. Best wishes. Roly

Lance said...

Include me in there too Roly. I think we both agree that the guy Ron was referring to was Marty Grosz. Praise doesn't come much higher!

Roly Veitch said...

Thanks Lance. Yes Ron, if it was Marty Grosz I was there. He sang, played pure acoustic rhythm and told some great anecdotes. I see from Wikipedia he is 90 now.
