Anything but ordinary

Have your say

April 6 was the 79th birthday of American country music legend Merle Haggard.

Concluding a life that was anything but ordinary, he also died that day.

I will be playing some of Hag’s songs at the Railway Hotel, Penistone Road, Wadsley Bridge, on Friday along with a tribute to Bobby Darin, who as mentioned by D Adams of Oughtibridge, (Letters April 15), would have been 80 on May 14.

Hoping to meet some of you there.
