Didar Singh Khalsa guest for May 11th, 2018

Listening Lyrics is proud to have had Didar Singh Khalsa in the studio. Didar Singh Khalsa has played guitars for 52 years but only six years ago started writing songs, singing and recording them. Inspired by six consecutive trips to the guitar/songwriting camp taught by the amazing Richard Thompson. He claims the muse is relentless and not even very intermittent. Let’s test that theory.

Their recent efforts include the release and tour of their self-recorded and produced, eponymous EP in May of 2017.

Check out "Low Strung" on Listening Lyrics last week!

Doug Kelly stood in for Pieter today to host Low Strung.    Somehow all of these wonderful Yale students fit in our TV studio for a video recording and a live radio broadcast.

Listen above to hear the chaos- special thanks to Live Tracks host Jim Buchanan, Bryce Parker for the video, and our own Preacher for helping with camera.    It takes a village sometimes!    

Special thanks to KDRT operations memeber Diane Crumley for the photo and ushering the group through our space.   And, yes, those are all Cello cases in our video editing area....

Pieter!!! I was listening to few of your shows today.
First- this is high quality stuff!!!! I was blown away!!! great music, great interviews, great ideas for the show. I'm a fan!!!!
Secondly- You two have great communication there. 
Third- for me, it is just brilliant to be able to listen to you two. Your voice sounds so familiar. It feels like sitting with you in the same room. You sound so calm and I just LOVE it.

Mesmerizing show Pieter. Gave me that moment of pause and allowed me to begin wrapping my arms around music and lyrics which will let calm settle in. An excellent compilation of wonderful words and sounds. Thanks.  

Love the new dimension and the seamless, feed-each-other, dimension it gives the program's back and forth banter. Great music selection and accompanying background info this week!

So good, so listenable, so smooth,and exactly my favorite style in music. Thanks Pieter and Alex.

 

What can I say; I LOVED THIS SHOW!

Additionally, I'll let you in on a secret, this was the first time that I listened to, not one, but two complete Rap songs -- and enjoyed them. :)

 

Loved the show and thoroughly enjoyed Cory. Tell him what Michael J Fox once said; "I am careful not to confuse excellence with perfection. Excellence, I can reach for; perfection is God's business."  He was excellent.

the October 3rd show was way too short. What a mellow and superbly classy hour that just blew by. Thanks!
