I used to think the Guitar was a silly instrument. Then I heard this chap and realised it is a very sensible and beautiful instrument played by a lot of silly people. My sister pointed out when I sent her this clip that it is a jolly good thing he is married otherwise he wouldn’t be half so good. It sounds much better if you use headphones and you need to to watch the video while you listen because it’s even more impressive to see him play than just to hear it. I first heard this when I happened to be reading St Bede’s Ecclesiastical History of the English People and then listened to it rather a lot. Consequently, there is a bizarre association in my mind between Benga Beat and heroic seventh century English Christianity. Well, Mr Ryan is from Kent. (He wrote the piece as well).
