Saw Suzanne Vega at the Palais in Melbourne- a great performer, playing some really memorable songs.
I was at Susanna in Dublin last night. Quite exquisite performance.
If you’re around in London tomorrow I’d recommend you make a point of seeing this beguiling group.
What we are listening to 
gary numan at the Vogue in Vancouer just an hour or so ago.
Saw Max Richter last night at The Moore theater in Seattle. Nice show.
We have just got in from seeing Hanna Haas in a room with 20 other people.
It was lovely to spend time chatting with her and chatting for a good part of the evening.
Little gigs rock
Xenia Rubinos at Ford Theater LA–part of Angel City Jazz Festival
Monterey Jazz Festival
Just got in from enjoying the amazing Elles Bailey band supportedby the wonderful Tamara Stewart.
It was great to just see them play as we are hosting them next week along with Jackie Bristow.
I can’t wait for that show and I get to film it…
My friend Mike Blackmore these snaps…
I was talking with Tamara after the show about that guitar which I wanted to own from the very first chord.
It was loaned by Gibson UK and is a Emmy Lou Harris signature guitar. I couldn’t believe this was a loaned guitar as she seemed so natural and at home with it. She said she had a wide choice but this one was like a perfect date. They clicked. Whilst we were talking I noticed Joe Wilkins (Elles Bailey guitar player) sitting down and noodling on it. He also loved it and told me that wherever he goes, he always comes back to his acoustic guitar but he also wanted this one… he couldn’t put it down… That was a great night…
Jon Hopkins, a week ago in Stockholm, Sweden. A birthday gift to my dearest friend who turned 50 in August. We felt old at this event but enjoyed the show immensly
Kitty Macfarlane, Kenilworth (UK).
A lovely, intimate performance at a local bookshop; part of a tour to promote her new album “Namer of Clouds”. Highly recommended if you get the chance to see her.
Saw Emily Barker at The Stables, very ably supported by Jack Carty. Excellent music all evening.
Isn’t she great… we love Emily at LRB
To be one of only two people in the room when she soundchecked Sister Goodbye was a memory I will never forget. Like she was singing just for me…
Tonight was the night of the Stephen Fearing gig at Rega and I even brought some vinyl of the record they recorded the last time Stephen was over.
No pics of the gig as it was just too intimate. Monies were raised for the Air Ambulance and a jolly good time was had by all… I am truly blessed…
I’ve been to Bon Iver (in Berlin) yesterday. It was such a great show and I was quite lucky, as the concert was sold out and I got my ticket from a friend (who was unfortunately ill). I recorded some bits to share it with her though:
VWow! That was something else. We just hosted Tamara Stewart followed by Jackie Bristow with Mark Punch on Guitar and then, if that wasn’t enough, we had the full Elles Bailey experience.
We knew this was going to be a great show but we never expected just how good. Jackie and Tamara joined Elles on stage to sing a couple of numbers also. Special…

Elles Bailey and her amazing band… Notice the Lesley speaker in the corner… just…
