I'm a great fan of YouTube and intend using it on occasion on this blog, in fact I did just that not so long ago with a video of the lifesaving dog at Sennen Cove. The great thing about YouTube is that it's not only possible to have really professional videos on there but anyone with something of interest (providing it's legal and decent of course) can upload their own offerings - doesn't matter if it is something shaky on a camera phone, that might be the only record of whatever it is. This particular high quality one though is of violinist Sue Aston playing the simple but hauntingly beautiful tune 'The Homecoming'. Sue lives in Cornwall I believe and there are some wonderfully iconic images of the county in the video. For her website go here. At the time of writing there have been the best part of a quarter of a million views; it's an example of why certain music is so special to me. Enjoy!
