What is the latest concert you've been to?

We were invited to see Sarah McQuaid last night (we paid as comps would have come out of her money, that’s how tough it is for musicians out there).
She is a quality performer, very personable and engaging. A beautiful sound due to her sound engineer who also helps with very innovative and impressive vocal looping in places.
Her guitar has a sound that you have to hear. Made by the person who makes Jimmy Pages Guitars she told me. I forget the name.
The music is a bit on the folk spectrum (although varied) and wouldn’t fit our sound signature to host but that is no criticism of the artist. She has her sound and she follows her own path.
She has a huge tour coming up and is also off to The Netherlands this year. Sarah is well worth seeing live if you get a chance, an accomplished performer.

Some recommended live music. The LYNNeS. I hope some people here can make some of these dates.
Looks to be a great tour.

LYNNE HANSON News Jan 30, 2018


After spending two months touring Western Canada with my own solo project, we are now set to launch The LYNNeS in earnest! The LYNNeS is a collaboration between myself and Juno-award winning Ottawa songwriter Lynn Miles. We’ve been working together for a few years now - we’ve co-written some songs, and she’s produced two of my albums (River of Sand & 7 Deadly Spins). About this time last year we decided to form The LYNNeS.


Fast forward to now, and our debut album HEARTBREAK SONG FOR THE RADIO is set to hit the streets this Friday February 2nd. We’ve had a number of early reviews already, and this is what a few people have had to say about the new album:

“With clever lyrics, superb harmonies and high quality backing musicians, this debut album is an absolute joy from first track to last” - Rory Stanbridge | FATEA Magazine (UK)

“An engrossing listen … the album opens with what must be one of THE songs of 2018 … a highly impressive early 2018 release … and The LYNNeS ‘ones to watch’.” - Pete Whalley | Get Ready to ROCK! (UK)

“Heartbreak Song for the Radio is stellar … Beautiful stuff, this. Seek it.” - Donald Teplyske | Fervor Coulee

If you’d like to find out more about the project, listen to sample, or ORDER the CD, we now have an OFFICIAL WEBSITE: www.thelynnes.com

Dave Draves was good enough to let us take over the Little Bullhorn Productions studio AND kitchen for a day, and we cooked up a music video for our single “Recipe For Disaster.” The video was filmed and directed by Leslie Marshall (MAVN Network), assisted by Deidre Morrison, and cinematography by Pixie Cram. Here’s the link if you’d like to check it out:

Just got in, late from seeing Shelby Lynne with Alison Moorer at Cadogan Hall London. The show was hosted by Bob Harris.
Teddy Thompson (Think Richard and Linda) opened with a 45 min set and then joined the ladies with the band on stage to do a cover of ‘Alison’ the Elvis Costello hit.

Alison and Shelby were enjoying themselves thoroughly in each other’s company as they played their way through the latest Album. Along with some old classics. Excellant.

We were delighted that the venue played artist we have hosted in the interval. Annie Keating, Danni Nicholls and Anne McCue amongst others. All from recordings made at Bob Harris’s ‘Under The Apple Tree’ sessions.

This was a truly class act. Only topped by the consumption of a Kebab at Gallows Kebabs on the way home.

Marvellous :sunglasses:

Saw Lee Konitz’s 90th birthday show. He couldn’t remember the song titles but his playing and singing were absolutely exquisite.

Thomas Collison was voted Instrumentalist of the year in the AMAUK awards.

We have been fortunate to have Tom play for us a couple of times now. He also plays for ‘The Dreaming Spires’ and on tour with ‘Danny and the Champion of the World’.

Here he is. Celebrating with Hannah Rose Platt who is playing for us in March. Another amazing talent.

Last night we went to see Shirma Rouse in the Doetinchem Amphion. She’s currently touring round the Netherlands with her celebration of Aretha Franklin’s music. Great show!


Had the pleasure to see Manu Katché Friday night. He is touring as a trio with Jerome Regard (bass) and Jim Grandcamp (guitar). I was expecting more jazz but his new project is more like something between ambient rock and jazz-funk. He includes lot’s of loops and sound snippets from a sequencer (looked like ableton live).
It was a small venue so I sat just a few feet away from him and had a good look at his excellent drumming. Anyways, he totally rocked the place… :metal:

Went to see the Charlie Hunter Trio (in an unusual, drums, guitar (which is also a bass), vocals configuration) this weekend. Must-see.

If you don’t know him, CH plays a seven string guitar, which allows him to cover both the bass and guitar parts. It’s incredible. As if he has four hands and two brains.

Here’s a brief clip of one of his solo tunes from the show to give you an idea…

Last saturday I have been to my (probably) favorite german band: kettcar
Did not make any videos or photos. Just listened. It was great.



Hi Christopher,

that’s what music is all about IMO. It makes you focus on the here and now. :grinning:

(Harry ten Berge) #198

Elbow yesterday in A’dam.
Still not sure what they are, nerdy or just a ‘band from the local bar’.

But the show was amazing. Superb sound, very classy light show.

(Chris ) #199

We Hosted Lynn Miles and Lynne Hanson touring as The LYNNeS last Saturday. They were a sensation. You know immediately when your in the company of world class artists.

Hanna Paris, Center in pic, opened the show with a short set also.

The view from my seat as they unplugged and wandered the room singing ‘You Gotta Have Rain’.

“We wrote it unplugged and we are going to play it unplugged”

I don’t care how good your Hi Fi is and what exotic cables you use, you cannot capture this!
