Charity begins at home. That may be the case, but I don’t have many gigs in my living room so I often find myself supporting charitable causes elsewhere.
While this night was primarily for the benefit of SAFE@LAST everyone in attendance certainly profited. James Ewan Tait is always a joy to watch, his narrative song style reminds me of Sun Kil Moon’s word smithery and tonight was no exception. Warrilow, as expected, silenced the crowd with his ghost folk. Weaving between traditional and contemporary quicker than his finger picking, he easily captivated the throng. Bright Season took to the stage then, and showcased their respective dexterity and vocal control while ambling through a set of traditional folk. More of the same, and soon, please.
