Johnny Silvo was the sort of populist folk singer for whom Britain's folk scene coined the expression "folk entertainer". He was an old-school folkie whose repertoire of folk and folk-blues standards, jazz and blues material chimed with the country's folk scene in the 1960s and 1970s in particular. His name seldom figures in accounts of the subject, except maybe as a marginal note associated with Sandy Denny – the female lead singer of Fairport Convention and Fotheringay and Led Zeppelin IV guest vocalist – through her time singing with the Johnny Silvo Folk Four and their joint album Sandy & Johnny (1967). Silvo's audience, concentrated in Western Europe and Scandinavia, did not care and stayed true to the end.

There are some individual things in life so terrible, so unspeakable, so hideous that ordinary language no longer works A few days ago, Isis Nassar, a 54-year-old British-Lebanese artist, a woman who paints portraits and landscapes filled with so much colour that they almost glow in the dark, was following her habit of travelling the world, teaching art to the poor and painting their lands.
Thursday 07 April 2011
The work of the artist and teacher Isis Nassar was informed both by her complex roots and her extensive travelling. In the tradition of the lady adventurer, Isis made her way carefully and thoughtfully through dozens of indigenous communities, learning their languages, customs and histories as she went. She was lost to us for weeks during q volcano eruption in the Philippines, and was similarly incommunicado in the Australian outback. She went to Laos, Vietnam, Mali, Ethiopia, Iran, Nicaragua, Bolivia... to over 70 countries in total, and each of these adventures is represented in her art.
