Review by Bokonon

“Go Your Own Way.” “Second Hand News.” “Big Love.” “Never Going Back Again.” “Not That Funny.” These are songs for boys.

“Gold Dust Woman.” “Landslide.” “Dreams.” “Sara.” “Silver Springs.” These are songs for girls.

Songs for boys are quirky, hiccupping and driving. Songs for girls are swirly, gossamer and spinning.

Songs for boys are better. Get over it.

“It was probably the Everly Brothers, I think. Yes, probably the Everly Brothers. Or if not them, then it might have been something by Cliff Richard & the Shadows.

“But the first music that I ever remember hearing was broadcast from a commercial radio station in Luxembourg. I used to listen to it on an old crystal radio set.”

Mick Fleetwood slips behind the drums once again at 8pm on Wednesday (June 19) to fuel mega-platinum rockers Fleetwood Mac in their return to the Times Union Center in Albany. Tickets are $37.50, $65, $95 & $125.

JoannieMadden“The first record I ever owned was given to me – Fleetwood Mac’s ‘Rumors.’ But the first one I ever bought was by Mary Bergin, the tin whistle player. I got them both within a couple of weeks. And that Fleetwood Mac record is still one of my favorites.”

Grammy Award-winning flutist, whistle player and vocalist Joanie Madden leads her traditional Irish music ensemble Cherish the Ladies into The Egg in Albany on Tuesday (December 8), in a fundraising concert for the Irish American Heritage Museum.
