I went along to Ely last night to see Harvey Andrews live for the first time in far too many years. He didn't disappoint.

Wonderful stories, great good humour, well-paced.

And then the songs, lovingly crafted and deceptively simple. And THAT voice. Still one of the clearest and best on the folk circuit. Brings a tear to your eye.

Lovely to see him again and he's active on the road at clubs and festivals from now into August. Don't miss him - the man is special.  The new CD Somewhere in the Stars is a cracker too.

Not here anyway - see you on the W***d C*p thread.

I enjoyed Harvey so much that I've checked the website and plan to see him again in St Albans on 16th July, so that my other half can get the experience.  He really was wonderful last night.

I saw him down at Hitchin at the end of May when he was supported by Miriam Backhouse Grin Grin................a good night, great singing and a superb version of 'Soldier' Grin Grin, but maybe a little too much talking to and maybe trying to teach - the young lads in the front row.

always worth seeing though

Miriam and I will be appearing back to back at Cambridge Festival on the Saturday night.

.......errm. Not physically, but we're in the same sequence with the lovely Suntrap.
