Anyone else heading out to see JL&TSS in the coming few months? I've got my ticket for The White Rabbit in Plymouth

Cannot believe they're supporting Dropkick Murphys on their tour in the States. That's bloody amazing for them but fully deserved.

There are probably not too many trad fans on this forum. I went to a great gig last night by the rather awfully monikered "T with the Maggies", which is Mairéad Ní Mhaonaigh (from Altan), Moya Brennan (from Clannad) and Maighread and Tríona Ní Dhomhnaill. As far as trad is concerned it doesn't get much better than this: Beautiful harmony singing. Harp and fiddle and everything else sounded crystal clear. Half the songs were in Irish, the rest in English. Great stage presence from these seasoned pro's.
The gig was in a church. Great acoustics and a very pretty place to sit in. And how nice to be at a gig where you don't have to listen to the yapping of people around you. Everybody listened. Gig of the year so far (I know, it's only January).

I have worn out "Death". Can't wait to hear it live on March 2 in Orlando (never expected that to happen)!!!! And everyone there had better pay attention to them because I will not hesitate to go into full-on bitch mode. Soooo excited for them! :)
shows? 90 so far...

Went to see Retrospective Soundtrack Players in Cambridge last night. They played in a church as part of Shindig and the theme of the night was 'narrative'. There was poetry and book readings between the bands so it wasn't your average gig. RSP only played songs from 'Cool Hand Luke' but there was also screens showing clips from the film. I've not seen the film so it was nice to be able to see what they are singing about. A great night, if a little different to what I'm used to.

I saw Frightened Rabbit on Saturday and also got to see Scott to a solo acoustic show on Friday. Simply fantastic.

Very much looking forward to Tall Ships at the end of the month as well.

I saw Stu Larsen last night in Whelans. I had not heard him before. He is a singer/songwriter from Australia, but he now doesn't have a home and is constantly on the road (sounds familiar). Wonderful atmosphere at this gig. Really attentive audience, good sound, nice open fire etc.
Stu has just tweeted the following: "i wish every show was like last night, best crowd/venue/support/sound/city/everything!"
Says it all.
Just wished that he would ditch the relay machine. It was only used sparingly but that's still too often.
Support was nice too. They were called Slow Skies. The singer sounded like Karen Dalton and the guitar player looked like Viggo Mortensen.

Saw the Unthanks last night. At this stage I'd describe myself as a big fan. They are absolutely unique. A mix of folk, prog rock, trad, psychedelic weirdness and clog dancing. It was just the core five members of the band and they did a kind of greatest hits set. I saw them in the Spirit Store in Dundalk. Had never been there before. Great venue.

Went to see Joy Formidable on Sunday who were fantastic. They have such a big sound but there was a couple of tender moments during the acoustic songs. Going to see them again on Saturday in Sheffield.

Also off to London to see Emily Barker and The Red Clay Halo in Balham.

I was also supposed to be seeing Beans On Toast in Derby next Friday, however that gig got postponed until the same day as Lexapalooza, so no Beans for me.
