Must add my 2d worth to Daphnes Flight. Superb understates them. Not only do they have fantastic voices, they seem instinctively to weave together. And there is infectious joy in performing together. I was surprised how many people hadn't heard Chris C before, but her voice was more powerful than ever amongst friends. I hope the rumour is true that the 2 Chris' will be at Crops this year.

Chris While is definitely there (I read this somewhere) not sure about any of the other Daphnes though.

Daphne's Flight at Maldon. A first for me and wow, it was fantastic. An almost packed Town Hall and the atmosphere was amazing.

  Smiley




So glad someone else on TAW has been to see them and has posted a review. They were so great last Friday. I was afraid everyone was going to miss them.


Al, isn't it amazing when one discovers a 'new' band and is blown away by the talent and the wonderful atmosphere, what a voice Christine Collister has, together with all the others it was pure magic!


They weren't entirely new to me as I had their first album 20 years ago and have been a fan of several of them individually for a long time, Christine Collister in particular. But this was my first time seeing them live and it was wonderful.

Chris - she was confirmed as part of Richard Thompson's band for Cropredy some months ago.

Some classy musicians thoroughly enjoying their work at the Fleece in Bristol last night. Jah Wobble and the Invaders of the Heart. Jazz, rock, jazz/rock, ska, reggae, dub, drum'n'bass, funk... all done with a wink and a nod.

A cracking gig from the Phil Beer Band at Stanley Halls.  Quite a few surprises – I certainly had not expected him to open the set with ‘Love the One You’re With’ on a 12-string.  Lovely venue, too (a listed Edwardian theatre, designed by a local inventor).  Reminded me slightly of Nettlebed.  Excellent local beers as well (I can recommend the Chelsea Blonde).  Anyway, it all whetted my appetite for the next Show of Hands concert.

I have seen the Alter Eagles on numerous occasions, but last night gig at Tuppenny Barn was the best ever. The band were on fire, and obviously enjoying themselves. It is also an amazing venue. Friendly staff and good real ale.

Fairport were on good form last night.  The first half was, I thought, a little flat, with a fair bit from the new album, but it definitely improved after the break.  It was nice to see Chris get his fiddle out for a few numbers too - lovely twin fiddle versions of WKWTTG and Fotheringay, and some fiddle duelling on the tunes that go with John Gaudie.

Simon warned us to look out for an upcoming edition of Soul Music on R4 about WKWTTG, for which he has recorded some thoughts.  He doesn't know when it goes out yet, but sometime in the next 6 weeks or so.

BTW, question for others who have seen them lately, has Gerry lost some weight recently?  I always think of him as very round-faced, but his face seemed quite angular last night?  Not in a bad way, I hasten to add.

Perhaps it's Gerry's shorter hair that makes him appear more slender of face.  Has Chris lopped off his long hair, or was it tied back? Personally, I think he looks better with shorter hair.

Chris' hair was tied back, not cut.  Not sure about Gerry's hair changing his look, but maybe you're right?

Not music but Brian Cox and Robin Ince at Wembley on the history of life, the universe, Big Bang and everything. I have never felt quite so stupid at a gig.

U2/Lumineers, Friday, AT&T Stadium (Jerry's World) in Arlington, Texas - Joshua Tree 2017

This tour is heading back to Europe later this summer, and I highly recommend it.

I won't spoil anything (setlists are ubiquitous on the Internet), but suffice it to say it was extremely nostalgic.

Lumineers must be wonderful in a smaller venue; the stadium swallowed them up.

Mrs. J From A took this snap early in the show, and it gives a good idea of the incredible visuals (and yes, that is a Joshua tree):
