Off to see an act I have never heard of tomorrow, Beans on Toast. To be honest it is the two excellent support acts that I want to see, Jess Morgan and Benjamin Folke Thomas. Just hope I enjoy the main act as well.


I mentioned I liked folk music to a younger person and they said did I like this act. I though they were joking at first.  Smiley

Beans On Toast has been around for years, and some of his early stuff was a bit bizarre with some very dubious lyrical content, but his latest album is intelligent, heartfelt singer songwriter stuff. He actually releases a new album on his birthday each year. Off to see him in Brum tonight - quite looking forward to it.

I think you are right with the younger crowd. At most folk gigs in Leicester I will no plenty of people there and be one of the younger members of the audience. Even though there was a good turnout I didn't know one person and was probably the oldest there as well.

Steve Knightley tonight.  Which will mean having seen all of Show of Hands on the same stage, but separated in time by a couple of weeks!

The Jim Moray trio tonight at the St David's Hall in Cardiff. The last few times we've seen him he's been solo, so it'll be good to see him with a band, albeit a tiny one!

Just purchased - Sammy Hagar and The Circle (Sammy, Michael Anthony formerly of Van Halen, Jason Bonham, and guitarist Vic Johnson) at ACL Live on April 30.

I never saw Van Hagar, but I got a peek at pre-VH Sammy in 1982 at the Texxas Jam in Dallas.  I am really looking forward to this one, and hope we get some awesome Led Zeppelin covers.  (I remember Sammy playing very competent Zep and Who covers at that 1982 show.  I think he also set his guitar on fire.)

Tonight, the Rock and Soul Revue featuring Dave Mason and Steve Cropper ("Play it Steve")!  Historic Paramount Theater in wet and cold downtown Austin, Texas!

Steve Cropper has been on my bucket list. I think he was with Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young on the 2002 tour (with Duck Dunn on bass and Booker T. Jones on keyboards), but if so he took such a back seat to Stills and Young that I have no recollection of his contribution.

Still waiting for an opportunity to see James Burton.

They were excellent, George is really carrying on with the music of his father and you couldn't fault the original Man stuff. But, just as impressive were their new tracks.

Also, check out the support, Du Bellows, another Welsh band. Their singer, Jade Williams has a great voice.

She performed 3 songs with John Martyn connections "Hurt In Your Heart " "Spencer The Rover" and as an encore " Couldn't Love You More" , but she really does put her own spin on each of them , rather than singing them as straight covers , and even if she did , I'd rather hear somebody cover JM well , rather than be  just sitting at home playing his CD's
Spencer Cozens was there , he produced Katie's new CD "Weather Beaten" , having previously worked with John in 90's

Bob Seger and The Silver Bullet Band, Thursday, March 7, Frank Erwin Center!

This show was originally scheduled for the Fall of 2017, before Bob underwent spinal surgery and recuperated for over a year.  I held onto our tickets the whole time, and now it's finally happening.

I only saw him once before, in 1986, at the same venue.  Looking forward to hearing "Mainstreet" one last time, hoping he can still hit the notes.

Saw him and the original Silver bullet band 40 years ago, they were fantastic, hope he can still do it, i bet he still has a trick or two up his sleeve

Just secured early bird priority tickets to see Tears for Fears at Castle Park, Colchester on Sunday 28 July!
Not sure if there is any support acts but looking forward to seeing Tears for Fears. So it’s back to the 1980s again as I’m seeing Big Country also in Colchester this Saturday  Grin
