ALBUM REVIEW: The sweet and sour songs of ‘Salt’ by Michael Baker

Following his critically-acclaimed debut album ‘Dust & Bone’, Brighton-based musician Michael Baker releases ‘Salt’, a stunningly honest and open-hearted journey through the ups and downs of life, love and loss. The album’s title and its simple, yet striking sea-green cover artwork immediately captured my imagination, setting the tone and flavour of a tidal and emotional …

Polly Samson & David Gilmour free live stream Thursday

Some of you will have had tickets for launch events to mark the release of Polly Samson's new book, A Theatre For Dreamers, which were scheduled for this week in Manchester, Birmingham and London. Due to the current pandemic, understandably these events (which were to feature, alongside Polly, David Gilmour and guests performing some music, including a new song) have moved to September.However, Polly and David both still wished to mark the book's release on its publication date, and so have decided to host a live stream via David's official Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/DavidGilmour) tomorrow evening.As yet, there are no details of what the stream will include, although a video has been shared of them getting ready for this in a studio space. Apart from Polly reading passages from the book, to give watchers a flavour of it, chances are also that at the very least an acoustic guitar might be picked up by David, to accompany her.Make sure you tune in tomorrow (Thursday, April 2nd) at 8pm BST/3pm EST at www.facebook.com/DavidGilmour (http://www.facebook.com/DavidGilmour) to see what occurs. The stream may well also be available to watch on demand after the event.

Nick Mason’s Saucerful Of Secrets – Royal Albert Hall concert moves to new date

An update for those of you who have been wondering about some of the dates on the upcoming UK and Ireland Nick Mason's Saucerful Of Secrets 2020 tour. Whilst most of the shows had been rescheduled due to the coronavirus pandemic, there were still three shows where revised dates hadn't been declared.One of those three – the May 7th show at London's Royal Albert Hall – has been moved to October 20th. Tickets remain valid for the revised date, and ticket holders are (as ever) advised to keep hold of their tickets and confirmations for this show.There are two other postponed shows from this leg of the tour which are yet to be announced – Dublin on April 29th, and Southampton on May 4th. Hopefully work is ongoing on getting new dates for these events and once we have the information, we will let you all know. It must be a difficult logistical exercise to come up with revised touring schedules which work with spare dates at the venues (some will have bookings, even if not yet announced, for next year already) whilst not turning the tour into a completely illogical journey!We're also expecting the European tour, due to start in Brussels on May 18th, to be postponed as well with the current global situation, and again, once we have the relevant information, we'll let you know.

Nick Mason interview in new Reader’s Digest magazine

For many, the long running pocket-sized magazine Reader's Digest is something they'd tend to come across in waiting rooms and other places, with a mix of articles that prove diverting while you are waiting to be called. It started back in 1922, and is read in localised editions all around the world. The April 2020 issue of the UK edition, however, has proved a definite surprise…The cover alone features someone you'd not tend to associate with Reader's Digest – the actor, Samuel L Jackson. Next to his right ear, though, is the headline for the article that Floyd fans in particular will be interested in: an eight page interview with Nick Mason on patience, parenting and Pink Floyd .The principal thrust of the article is Nick looking back at his life, from the very early days of family holidays, and being introduced to the world of cars (including a picture I'd not seen before of a 13-year-old Nick admiring an old Rolls Royce), through to the development of the band. This covers the very early days, right up to his current project, Nick Mason's Saucerful Of Secrets (although there is little about this).You can purchase this issue online for despatch worldwide (https://www.mymagazinesub.co.uk/readers-digest/latest-issue/details/readers-digest-april-2020-issue-89/), rather than having to venture out to try and find a copy in one of the few stores still open at the moment.
