What's Opera Doc 2

That's an interesting selection... and it has made me realise that my 15 completely missed all my Steeleye Span (sorry: not so keen on Fairport!) and opera, despite the fact that they outnumber most other styles put together.

I know... the sudden concentration of Fairport is surprising, though 16. would have been Eliza Carthy, followed by more classical (Thomas Arne) then Capercaille, more Billy Bragg, the Broadside Band and the City Waites.

Ahh, Seth Lakeman, our local music star. OK, he's hardly as famous as Muse or Joss Stone, but then Yelverton is closer to Chilsworthy than Teignmouth or Cullompton.

A few years ago I received strange looks from the Taruithorn youngsters when I reported something about Muse in a way which made it clear that I had never heard of them, which I had not.
