Izzy Tries On a New Hat: Folklore Centre, Stockholm; Izzy Young; Talking Folklore Centre Blues



"Change can be a good thing- even when it comes to the way that bread is baked".

A courtesy visit to Izzy Young at the Folklore Centre in Stockholm.

It's more than ten years since we last met, in 2004.

The Beats Abroad

The Beats I met
Were really beat,
Not acting beat-
They'd faced defeat
In jail, survived,
Kept low,
Jumped bail,
Been on the run,
Far from the Hole-
Hid out with saints
And Spanish gypsies;
Sought sanctuary-
Found peace in Greece.
