Welcome to the first ever ‘Week In Review’ blog. We’ve been meaning to start a blog for a while but haven’t had the facility’s to do so, but thanks to our new site we can. We’re going to talk music, albums and just about anything else that takes our fancy. You can join in the discussion and tell us what you think by using the comment function. Right, lets get started
Hatful Of Rain
On a very rainy Tuesday night, ironically we had ‘Hatful Of Rain’ fill our hall with their music. Based in Sussex the Blue Grass/Folk group came down to our humble little venue and put on a fantastic night. From the moment they walked in through the door for sound check they were very professional and struck me as genuinely nice people. With their own mic set up, which reminded me a lot of the Mumford & Sons 2011 Brit Awards performance, their sound was very earthy and dynamic. Their debut album will be released soon so if you wanna hear more, go to www.hatfulofrain.co.uk to keep up to date.
Patsy Matheson & Becky Mills
On Thursday we welcomed Patsy Matheson & Becky Mills. Their beautiful and down to earth song writing gave me goose bumps that along with soft vocal harmony’s and guitar parts that seamlessly blended into one another makes them a must see act. For more info go to www.patsymatheson.co.uk
Album Of The Week
The first ever album of the week goes to (drum roll) …. Derrin Nauendorf. His self titled live album takes you on a journey, with amazing singing and guitar playing that quite frankly makes me not want to bother learning to play. It’s what I like to call a ‘Head phone album’. To really get the full spine tingling experience from his songs you have to put head phones on, close your eyes and listen. The album demands your full attention. To hear more go to www.derrinnauendorf.com and follow this musical phenomenon.
Well I guess that’s it for our first ‘Week In Review’ blog, feel free to comment and put forward your thoughts. Until next week, have an amazing weekend and keep music live.
