Brilliant review of Gillian and David's performance in Brighton. I love these guys....totally blown away when I saw them recently at the Fillmore [San Fran] closing out the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Fest.
''...played like two halves of the same musical brain..'' Absolutely!!

I'll be at Matt's show but giving the others a miss I think.

Meanwhile here's a couple of pics I took at Frampton's superb gig at Hammersmith last Sunday:

Cracking evening with Gillian Welch and David Rawlings. Three encores topped off with a brilliant White Rabbit (last heard this year performed by June Tabor and The Oysterband).

I could listen to DR all night. I find his playing thrilling - like a highwire walker who teeters on the brink but you know he's going to bring it home every time.

Which makes it sound like GW is inferior, while she is anything but. Just that DR elevates the duo to another level. Their music has an old-time elegance to it. It's something you either love or hate, I think.

Pretty well sold out Hammersmith Apollo. Less than sold out Shepherds Bush Empire last time but that must have been three or four years ago. I was similarly surprised by the turn-out for The Jayhawks earlier this year. Who's plugging these acts - Bob Harris?

I was at the London show, amazing voice still, great evening & I even got the man himself to sign my old vinyl copies of Come Taste The Band & Last Concert In Japan afterwards, which was nice.

Skynyrd

1 June Glasgow Clyde Arena
2 June Manchester Apollo
3 June Hammy Apollo

Said my goodbyes to them at Brixton a couple of years ago - enjoyed it, but also felt sad that it seemed no more than a tribute band - even the solos were the same but by different players.

Bruce Hornsby - Shepherds Bush Empire - Saturday 28th January (£25 - looks like all tickets are reserved seating); Glasgow Concert Hall Monday 30th January. Both solo shows, but Glasgow will have special guests (part of Celtic Connections annual festival).

Would have definitely went to SB if it had been a band show, now just thinking about it.

Very good short film made by a college kid - "Bluegrass & Old-Time Music In the UK: An Exploration of the Music

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zhgIb1SlfS4


quote:
Young English banjo player John Breese recently graduated from the University of Southampton, having completed a year-long Masters course in Music, majoring in classical guitar.

For one of his modules Breese made a film Bluegrass & Old-Time: An Exploration of the Music in the UK, rather than writing a paper as part of his studies, “The community is fantastic over here and I really wanted to convey that in a film”, Breese asserted.

“I wanted to depict an honest view of the scene in the UK according to what I know of it in my experience. Anyone who watches the film can see the sense of community, encouragement and humour within the music here.

.The course was fairly open, with one module offering an individually negotiated topic of study to be presented in the form of an essay or equivalent. Breese went on to explain,

“I approached the professor of rock and pop with my proposition to make a film about the bluegrass and old-time community in the UK and got a positive reaction. The support I received from the University was fantastic, despite lack of equipment or any funding to offer.

It was technically very difficult to record and produce the film completely on my own, as I was having to deal with a crew of only me with no experience in any kind of filming, and an extremely tight budget.”

.After applying for funding through a variety of organisations, the British Bluegrass Music Association offered some financial help.

“I was able to ask within the community for help with things like how to edit audio, … the best kinds of lenses to buy and how to deal with different lighting situations. Most of this information was very useful, as it was not something you could find out from reading a book on the subject.”

.The 25 minute film is now posted on YouTube. It includes interviews with some prominent members of the bluegrass music community in a region stretching from the Cotswolds, where the Sore Fingers Summer Schools (Kingham Hill) is located – the subject of a recent article in Bluegrass Unlimited by my Bluegrass Today colleague Chris Stuart – down through to Somerset and Avon. With good footage of jam sessions and stage performances it provides some good samples of British bluegrass musicianship in the 21st century.

Breese began learning to play the banjo when he was 16, taking lessons from local Bath teacher and performer Leon Hunt.

“Leon put me onto Sore Fingers Summer Schools where I met a wealth of new friends with similar interests.”

.With what he describes as “a certain amount of work and dedication,” Breese progressed and soon went on to play with the Carrivick twins, from South Devon, and to teaching budding young bluegrass prospects.

So, how successful has Breese move into the music profession been?

“Since graduating as a Master of Music with distinction from a reputable university, my parents find it hilarious that I am now a professional banjo player. I am almost able to scrape by and make a living through touring with the Coal Porters, and teaching with the Bath Bluegrass School.

The nature of bluegrass music is similar to jazz in that, generally speaking, it is difficult to become a recognised figure within the scene unless you are technically and musically proficient.

I enjoy the competitiveness of the music in this country as everyone is still very friendly despite this fact. There are many who say that it is impossible to make a living as a professional bluegrass musician in this country. Perhaps this is true, but I am giving it my best shot!”

Alternative to the Grantley for anyone looking for an overnight at Shepherds Bush. On Booking.com I found the Sapphire Hotel in Shepherds Bush Road. £45 for a single with breakfast of Scrambled or fried eggs on toast with beans and cereals, juice, croissants. Brand new, so spotless at the moment. They don't have the 3 single bed option that the Grantley has though. www.sapphirehotellondon.co.uk.

Also if you are going to the O2 Arena, its a lot less crowded to go Central Line to Stratford and change to Jubilee there for North Greenwich and a lot quicker on the way back as there's no queues for Jubilee westbound.
