Paul Mosley singer, songwriter, composer and all-round good guy recently revisited the Invisible Folk Club. We have embraced the technology so it was a virtual podcast session. Paul has been very busy throughout lockdown writing a lot of new material and finishing off some older tunes. He performed two songs on the actual session (Mr Twist & Skylark Above Me) then later submitted three more home recordings which became the closing musical section and a snapshot of where Paul is at right now. He calls it a mini cabaret!

Paul's notes for the additional songs:
Invisible Me - The album version is on Music For for Puppets (a forthcoming release) and is full of glitchy synths and sung by Esther Dee. This is a piano and strings version sung by me.
Prison Rules - An exclusive not available anywhere else!
Ghost ships - The original version is on an old album called 'The Romantic' sung as a duet, coincidentally also with Esther Dee, with loads of tuned percussion and junk. This one is just me, a piano and a musical saw.

Nothing in the broad church of folk related music is off limits, there's many shades of folk, ours is an eclectic mix. There's some famous names and some not so famous names, they all deserve your attention. The Invisible Folk Club continues to promote new music while tipping a hat to the pioneers who came before.

DJ Jon Bickley continues to work his way through a bunch of excellent new releases, it's quality street! On a more sombre note we mark the passing of Peter Green with the intense 'Out Of Reach' recorded in 1966 during his time with John Mayall's Bluesbreakers. When he sings the final line 'I've had so much trouble, I'm out of reach, I can't take no more' you believe him.

There's something for everybody, we'll continue to be predictably unpredictable!

2½ years ago singer/songwriter/guitarist Grae J Wall was one of the earlier guests at the Invisible Folk Club, on that occasion he brought along fiddle player Andy Keeble. Last August (2019) news reached us of Andy's sudden and unexpected death, it was a sad day. This podcast is dedicated to Andy.

For Grae's second visit old friend and steel guitar player Rico came along and together they served up their own brand of earthy music. Echoes of Leadbelly, Robert Johnson, Hank Williams and Woody Guthrie will take you straight to the heart of the matter.
