Thanks to everyone who came to Loudhailer Acoustic last week, great audience and fab sounds, it really was an ace night. It’s auricula time of year so Rich & I opened the show with a couple of new Auricula Suite songs and Dexter jumped on the stage and joined in with some very nice violin. John Gowans’ played a rolling English Beat cover and premiered his newest original song. It was a night of new songs and was great to welcome back Katie Shepherd who first came to Loudhailer Acoustic in the early days, back in town with two cool new songs. Next up it was our original Odd Poet Roy Kibbler’s 37th Loudhailer Acoustic, his set included his 159th poem, most excellent indeed. Always great to welcome Jim Orwin to the stage with two of his classic originals, and to close the first half Dez Allenby invited everyone to join in so we had a sing along before the break. Catherine Scott opened the second half with a set of her fabulously funny poems and wicked humour. Stuart Dainty’s original songs included a brand new one, both lovely, followed by Brian Williams’ groovy blues harmonica. We were treated to a Motown sound by our Back Room host Paul Sutton before Martin and Steve, the two (unrelated) Peirsons took to the stage with a lovely sound and songs featuring guitar and melodeon. The finale for the night came from Strawberry Moon with a pair of songs from their upcoming debut album, a fine end to a lovely night.
