The DIGGERS were a political movement in 17th century England. A song was written about them by Leon Rosselson the lyrics of which are poignant and still ring true for many of us today.
On this page I have included the lyrics as well mp3s of "The World Turned Upside Down" by many musicians including Leon Rosselson, Clandestine, Billy Bragg, Oysterband, Chumbawamba, and Dick Gaughan.
The Diggers were closely aligned with The Levellers during a revolutionary time in England. For more information about The Diggers movement, check out the Wikipedia entry.
This is a link to some of my photographs. They include photos of bands such as Oysterband, Chumbawamba, the Prodigals, and Enter the Haggis. There's also photos of my travels in France, Scotland, England and other landscapes and, of course, copious pictures of my cat, Claws. I also have an old Fotolog account which I no longer update. I do ask that you kindly contact me if you'd like to use any of my photos.

IRISH step dance was brought forefront in the public eye by Riverdance and has maintained its popularity for well over a decade. Touring groups in addition to the Flatley productions also include world-renowned Trinity Irish Dance Company. I came across Irish Dance by happenstance but decided to stick with it. It has brought me great joy and I have made life-long friends in the Irish Dance community.

"O wad some Power

An' foolish notion:
What airs in dress

An ev'n devotion! "
I'm not crazy about the idea of having a blog and I don't update it regularly, but here's a link to it anyway!
Once upon a time, instead of a silly blog, I did a silly zine. Mine covered much ground including the standard album reviews and band interviews as well things like tributes to the late Joe Strummer and personal friends who passed away. It was tongue-in-cheek and light-hearted. As I grew older, I became more distant from the "unDeep persona" and discontinued it in 2005. Feel free to explore the website as I left it when I did the last issue. I do still have some copies of a few issues. Use the contact link above to get printed copies.
