Per Musica Ad Astra Mix: Casionova - Danny Kirwan Tribute
Posted on 10 June, 2018 by Magic Waves
Tonight's mix is a special 3 hour tribute to Danny Kirwan who died on Friday, June 8th. The selection covers all of his recording career from 1968-1979, including his solo work, his contributions to Fleetwood Mac in their early years and collaborations with Chris Youlden and Tramp. The musical styles range from Blues to Folk, from Psychedelia to Heavy Rock, from Synth Experiments to Funk and Disco, all showcasing his incredible and highly distinctive guitar playing, singing and songwriting talents. One of rock music's most tragic and yet also most exemplary stories of true musicianship, we pay tribute to a forgotten and underrated genius of English music. Due to the length of the mix, we are starting earlier than usual tonight, at 17:00 CET on The Dream Machine.
