Luther Dickson and Sisters of the Strawberry Moon have released a new video for “Like A Songbird That Has Fallen”, off the group’s forthcoming debut studio album, Solstice, due out on March 22nd via New West Records. Dickinson, a co-founding member of southern rock act North Mississippi Allstars, produced the album himself at his family’s Zebra Ranch Studios in Independence, Mississippi. Dickinson has rounded up an all-star, all-female cast for the new project, including Amy Helm, Lillie Mae, Amy LaVere, Sharde Thomas, Birds of Chicago, and the Como Mamas.Originally written by T Bone Burnett and Bob Neuwirth for the 2003 film Cold Mountain, Luther Dickinson recorded his cover of “Like A Songbird That Has Fallen” with Amy Helm and Lillie Mae. Following a breezy opening guitar segment from Dickinson, Helm dives head-first into the song’s verse before harmonizing with Mae on the chorus.Dickinson recently shared his thoughts on the new project with Relix. He explains,Each singer brought a handful of songs to the table. Sometimes it was an old tune they wanted to reinterpret or something new they’d written that felt right for the cast of characters at hand, but no matter the track, all of our colors ended up mixing together on a communal palette.Watch Luther Dickinson and Sisters of the Strawberry Moon’s new video for “Like A Songbird That Has Fallen” below:Luther Dickinson and Sisters of the Strawberry Moon – “Like A Songbird That Has Fallen”[Video: New West Records]Luther Dickinson and Sisters of the Strawberry Moon will perform at various City Winery locations throughout the month of March.

Her name is Ayelet Regev, but her fans know her as Emma Woodhouse. This third-year law student gives relationship advice on her radio show and self-created website under the penname based on the matchmaking Jane Austen character. “It’s a cheeky play on words,” Regev said. Her radio show, titled “Emma’s Dilemma,” airs Thursday nights at 7 p.m. on Notre Dame’s student-run radio channel, WVFI. Regev, who has a degree in Gender Studies and sociology, deals with relationships on a basic human level rather than focusing solely on romantic relationships, “Dealing with people, understanding them, it really is so important,” she said. “We teach math, science … Why don’t we teach more about relationships?” Originally from Israel, Regev used her interpersonal skills to deal with the cultural transition when she moved to the United States. Now, she uses that same skill set to help people navigate their own relationship issues. “I see it all as part of one big thing,” Regev said. “It’s really holistic, how to deal with people and one’s relationship with other people.” Her website, finallygetit.com, launched about a year and a half ago. On the site, people can get personalized relationship advice. People also contact her through her Facebook and ask questions, Regev said. She decided to do a radio show on WVFI so she could answer the broader relationship questions that many people have. “People deal with these issues all the time,” Regev said. WVFI station manager Nicolle Walkling, a senior, said most of the shows on WVFI are music-based and the talk shows usually revolved around sports or entertainment. So Walkling thought a relationship advice show sounded like a great idea. “We’re always looking to expand the scope of the station.” Walkling said. “This show is really interactive and not only includes the campus community, but the wider South Bend community as well.” Regev has also written two relationship books. One is geared toward women and the other for men. The books explain the principles of relationships and their ultimate goal is to help people understand the mechanisms that create a relationship, Regev said. “I don’t tell a person what they want,” Regev said. “I try to figure out what they want and help them reach their end goal.” ]
Daniel O’Donnell has rowed in behind objections to plans to set up an oyster farm close to his home.The singer and hundreds of other people are objecting to the plan at Cruit Island in the Donegal Gaeltacht.Daniel and wife Majella regularly walk on the beaches nearby where the plan for the 12 hectare seafood farm has been applied for. Speaking from his island home in Tenerife, the chart-topping star said he feared the plan would damage tourism in the area.“I would appeal for these plans to be moved. I’m hoping that an alternative site or sites can be found because this is not the place for oyster farms, two of the most beautiful strands in the country.“I’m all for job creation but this is a tourism amenity and an amenity for the local pony club and local people generally.“I can’t believe that the people who grant the licenses would come out to where these farms are proposed – I’d be very surprised if they gave it the go ahead.” Daniel said he wasn’t against creating jobs but thought a more suitable area could be found for the farm.“I’d never turn my back on job creation; but this would be a terrible eyesore on beautiful white sandy beaches and I would hope somewhere less obtrusive could be found,” he told Highland Radio.Local objecting to the farm are also annoyed that Marine Minister Michael Creed has ruled such projects do not require an Environmental Impact Statement.Local campaigners have denied the farms will create many jobs and have taken part in protests locally.One application is for 11.2-hectare project in Kincasslagh Bay at Keadue strand and the applicant is Manus Bonnar of Belcruit, Kincasslagh. Another application is for a 12.5-hectare project in Kincasslagh Bay at Cruit strand, from applicant Benedetta M.C. Cazzamali, who lives in County Cork.Local politicians Pat the Cope Gallagher, Thomas Pringle and Pearse Doherty have all objected to the plans.Daniel rows in behind objections to plans for oyster farm was last modified: October 12th, 2016 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)
