It was another evening of magical moments at Loudhailer Acoustic last night. Thanks to everyone who came to listen to the music and to everyone who came to play. The audience was treated to a first half of excellent and eclectic sets from old friend Tim O’Connor (English protest songs, Poacher’s Night) followed by the lovely Katie Spencer (most soulful new songs). Next up superb wordsmith Jim Orwin (beautifully measured Ghost of Me with a perfect culmination), Vivian Querido’s gorgeous Klezmer solo violin tunes and then with Farid, the most quirky and charming Berber bird song).
After a catch up chat and a beer at the break Karl Oakes opened the second half with two new songs and then sat back and belted out Sailors Blues 82s. We were highly entertained by the premiere of the brand new face of Graham Graham Beck (ace new album in the pipeline) and then the second of the brace of Grahams, Graham Brady closed the show: edgy, anti-nervous and so cool, all at the same time. We loved it all.
