This day of Alt country was squeezed between birthdays and was suggested by Dave Hes who in the end couldn’t make it due to illness. Dave and Helen came along and the Tomothy Taylor’s Ram Tam flowed…..
We arrived just as Alessi’s Ark were finishing, so our day really started with William the Conquerer who did a good set with some lovely bass work.
Gill Landry had a mixed bag of songs, some beautiful and incisive whilst others fell a bit flat – nice banter between songs though.
John Smith has a wonderful gravelly voice made for murder ballads and did some lovely guitar picking – there was a lot to like here….
Josh Rouse has a voice like honey and writes beautiful, understated songs that get you smiling and swaying along – Paul Simon-esque I hear you say….maybe….have a listen to him being interviewed here
The night finished with the rousing Travelling Band who went at it full tilt….Lee and Helens favourite.
