A Firsthand Guide to Bled Slovenia – Slovenian food

This is a very small selection of items you might see on a menu. If you are a bit more hesitant about trying new tastes, give these a go as an introduction.

A Firsthand Guide to Bled – Bars and restaurants

The whole point of Firsthand Guides is to give you personal recommendations of places the writer has been. The suggestions are my personal choices. They are places I, my family and my friends like.

A Firsthand Guide to Slovenia – Events throughout the year

People come to Bled all year round, but the busiest time is, unsurprisingly, the summer. It is also the time when the town is most active. Sports events and music dominate, but there are many other cultural occasions, too.

Slice Audio – Friday 15 February

Last week (15 February 2019) I started a show on Slice Audio streaming on the internet.
Here is the playlist for week 1

Community Podcasters are the new Punks

Three chords and a guitar? Community podcasters have an audio recorder and a determination to have their voices heard. Just like punks in the 1970s who demystified the record industry.

More than 50 women you should hear sing – Part 1

“More than 50 women’s voices you should hear” is a spin off from the imaginary Mediterranean tour. This is the first of probably four posts

Mediterranean Music – Start Here

Almost two years ago, I set out on an imaginary journey around the Mediterranean to explore the music and hear how such diverse cultures and peoples could influence each other and rely on each other for development in modern music. 

Mixcloud Mix Number 3 “Random”

A new mix for the weekend. Some of the tunes connect, some don’t. Overall they are a random selection. There are bands and tunes you have never heard before (honestly worth hearing) and some you’ve forgotten you even knew.

Mediterranean Music – Morocco

The end of the journey and the music of Morocco. The music is real, the trip (as is the grilled fish sitting on a Moroccan beach) is imagined.

Mediterranean Music – Algeria

With the exception of Libya, north Africa has been incredibly rewarding. No less Algeria. 

Mediterranean Music – Tunisia

This is my fantasy journey around the Mediterranean Sea in search of music.

Tunisia – you are outstanding. Read about the musicians, listen to the music.
