To Stand Beneath the Diamond Sky …

From Nigel

“Somerstown’s Tambourine Man!
Since it opened this year I have driven under that new ‘space age’ building spanning Winston Churchill Avenue at Somerstown many times. On Friday I decided to have a look inside, very impressive with a futuristic wooden framework supporting the outer skin. It houses sports, health, community facilities, a big cafe etc. and this amazing mural by street artist Paul Stone, aka My Dog Sighs. His work is appearing on walls all round the city. To get an impression of the height of the piece, compare it with the doors below left, I like to think of the mural as Somerstown’s own Tambourine Man!”

To which Nigel adds
Another Sunday song – This may be 7 days late but this rendition of Bert Janch’s, ‘Fresh As A Sweet Sunday Morning’ by Wizz Jones and John Renbourn at the Lunar Festival on the 7th June 2014 is a great acoustic song to ease into Sunday morning with https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Eeqzr5wbFug
You can see a photo of Wizz Jones about 50 years ago in Pompey Pop Pix at the Railway Folk Club
