Featuring the music of Duke Lang

A native of Canada, Duke has four of his songs on his page at MySpace. He's an excellent, successful musician and a kind man. An unbeatable combination, in my opinion!

If you're not a MySpace member, you can't comment on his songs or poems, but take a listen and read. I love all of the songs he has featured, but admit the St Augustine one is a particular favorite of mine. Duke tells me he's headed to a recording farm in Norway to lay down another CD soon, so that's good news!

While you're on his page, I'd recommend a side trip to listen to the music of John Spillane and Korine Polwart. Just click on their photos in his top eight to go to their songs. John is Irish and has a wonderful lilting accent as he speaks and sings.

Enjoy! I've posted to Duke that I'm featuring him here, so if you leave comments I'm sure he'll see them here at some point.

That was fun... I haven't heard music like that since I left Amarilo, Texas.

I know Duke from MySpace as well. He commented on my Prelude to War poem. I'm not much of a country music fan but I do like Duke's lyrics and voice. I have listened to "The Luck" a few times now. Have you seen the lyrics to Shelbyville? I especially like them. Thanks for posting this.

I hadn't clicked on the lyrics link. Should have. Have just listened. He changed his music yesterday so I'll have to look today and see if that's one that's still there.

Hi Tom
It shows us what a small world it is, eh? Glad you enjoyed him, too.
