PHIL OCHS


Here`s a piece I did while listening to Phil Och`s "I Ain`t Marching Anymore" .
Do yourself a favour and check out some of his stuff (it`s hard to find,so youtube is your best bet).

He was a great folksinger who wrote some really fantastic protest songs and sadly killed himself in the seventies and most of his songs then fell into obscurity for the most part.It`s one of the great tragidies of music since some of his songs were true gems.

Anyway,I`ll be doing a few pieces like this using the work of some singers I really admire like Luke Kelly,Pete Seeger,Ewan MacColl etc.
