Only a small harvest? You must be easing up these days!

Heading to see Supersuckers tonight, they're doing a country rather than a rock show so it should be a bit different.

That will undoubtedly be brilliant. Not seen them do the full on country thing live, but have heard plenty of it and seen them do a couple of those songs in a normal set before.

Earlier this week I joined a good friend who got roped into free Steve Winwood/Steely Dan tickets by work colleagues. I know they have their fans but it was a special kind of hell for the two of us. We spent most of the show drinking wine and catching up in the concession area which was a positive.

It did make me wonder if anyone else has a particular show that they would like to cross off their list? Could be a band that you were excited to see but they disappointed you. Or maybe it's a show from your past that you look back on and think "Was I actually a fan?!"

It was brilliant, although not as country as I would have thought, or the current album would have indicated.

McCartney and Coldplay were amazing as I expected. Paul had quite a few different songs in the set from when I saw him last year, so that was fun. And I never get tired of the stuff he always puts in there. Coldplay were worth 500 miles of back and forth driving in two days. I was worried the stadium setting might feel a bit distant but it was electric in there. Wonderful. I know they've been massive forever but it still feels crazy to see this band I first listened to in my tiny freshman dormroom 16 years ago in a bowl of tens of thousands of people. I haven't loved everything they've done recently but have to say I sure enjoy all of it live. Amazing performers and it sort of felt like meeting up with old friends. On the first night Chris Martin did a lovely cover of Jersey Girl. Second night took the cake, though, with the band covering Earth Angel and Johnny B Goode joined by Michael J Fox on guitar.
Next up: The National at Red Rocks. Should be beautiful, visually and musically.

I was at Cambridge Folk Festival last weekend - my very favourite festival. These were my highlights, in this order!

Gogol Bordello, Christy Moore, Kíla, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Glen Hansard, Solas, Duncan Chisholm, Le Vent du Nord, Chris Wood, Lisa O'Neill, Darlingside, Jon Boden.

Sadly I missed both Will Varley and Emily Barker's Applewood Road due to clashes...

I agree, Gogol Bordello are great to see live.

I saw Jake Bugg recently, whilst not the most active or vocal on stage, I really like his songs live. Always surprises me how many Songs I can sing along to.

A week ago I saw Maria McKee at St Patrick's Cathedral here in Dublin. This was a really big deal for me. I have been a fan since the first Lone Justice album came out in 1985. I saw Lone Justice only once, but Maria McKee every time she toured. Her six solo albums are fantastic and I never tire of them.
Maria married a filmmaker, started working with him on films and soundtracks and more or less retired as a touring musician. When the announcement came that she would play Dublin as part of the Temple Bar TradFest I bought a ticket instantly, without checking if I could make it or anything. Turns out this concert was a one off, coinciding with Maria visiting friends in Ireland. While it wasn't as big a deal as Kate Bush returning to the stage after 30 years, it was not far off. People had travelled from as far as Norway and Italy to be at this show.
It was perfect. Friends joined her for a couple of songs, but other than that she performed solo, either with guitar or piano. A Dutchman who sat across the aisle from me filmed quite a bit and there are great clips of the show on YouTube. Had to cry a bit (and I was sober), as did people around me. What a gig!
Hope we won't have to wait 10 years for the next one.

Went to U Street Music Hall in D.C for another Bear's Den show last night. As usual, they put on a good one.

Gill Landry was the opener. I've heard a bit of Old Crow Medicine Show but first time seeing Mr Landry. What a fantastic songwriter/storyteller and guitarist! Another argument not to skip the support band(s).

One week ago I went to see Touché Amoré for the sevnth time or something like that. Wow, I still can not put it into words how magical there show's are to me. They're so intense and I could never ever do two shows in a row. Also the latest record "Stage Four" worked brilliant on stage. Jeremey now plays the guitar for a couple of songs and I think it had a slightly The National touch when he did. Hope it won't be long until they're back again in Europe!
58 gigs in 16 countries...

I saw Martin Simpson in Greystones, Co.Wicklow. Have been a fan since I came across him at Cambridge Folk Festival ten years ago. This was a rare opportunity to see him in Ireland. Amazing guitar playing, great stories and wonderful songs. Couldn't be bettered!

I went to the see The Interrupters on Friday in Liverpool, with The Barstool Preachers (Brighton based punk band) and Gimp Fist supporting.
The Barstool Preachers were fucking phenomenal, so much energy. Would love to see them on a FT tour!

Last month I saw Tom Chaplin (formerly Keane's frontman, now solo) in DC and NYC ... anyone who has to suffer through following me on social media knows how much I've missed Keane, so hearing his voice again was amazing. With Keane I felt he was the best live vocalist I've ever seen and his recent shows held up that assessment. I really love his solo work and it came off great live, and he did some Keane songs as well which was very emotional for me. So pleased for him that his album was a success as I know he struggled terribly a couple years ago.
That and Frank in Philly and Boston have been my only shows this year so far.
Next: Bastille in DC at the end of this month ... always enjoy them and love the new album so I'm very excited. Then Beach House in Delaware the night after that. Then in April I'm going to see Coldplay in Taiwan, which should be a big adventure.
