02: A SELECTION OF TANGLEWOOD VIDEOS:
‘DIAMONDS ON THE WATER’ This is the title track from Oysterband’s album ‘Diamonds On The Water’. It is one of our favourite songs and one we have been pleased to perform at a number of folk clubs and open mic venues in recent years. We like the optimism contained in the lyrics of the song as well as its inherent drive and energy.

‘BE THE MAN’ This is our cover of a song which was written by ‘The Young ‘Uns’. The song was inspired by the sad and true story of Matthew Ogston who founded the ‘Naz & Matt Foundation’ to tackle religious and cultural homophobia following the tragic suicide of his fiancé.

‘WE NEED EACH OTHER NOW’
This is Tanglewood‘s version of a ‘Merry Hell’ song, a contemporary folk-rock band from the North West of England.
‘We Need Each Other Now’ has become a very popular song and is, without doubt, a virtual anthem for the challenging times we are currently living through.
