    You meet when you least expect it.

    Me and the missus went to see Dennis Locorriere play tonight and he had as
    his support act a couple of musicians I'd never heard of. One being the
    singer/guitarist/pianist and the other her bass player (and husband if I
    heard correctly). The singer is one Emily Maguire and Christian Dunham the
    bass player. Un-fucking-believable.

    Both really personable folk and very approachable and considering her life
    living with bi-polar, bloody well balanced too. And not to put too fine a
    point on it, she's drop dead gorgeous too.

    She sang every word from the bottom of her soul and he played bass so
    perfectly it was as if he was inside her head when he stroked his weapon
    (f'narr) THE most soulful bass playing I've ever heard and the perfect
    instrument to bring out her voice and guitar, not to mention her piano

    All in all, a thoroughly enjoyable evening and I'd recommend a trip to at
    least her website where there are a raft of vids and then to one of her

    As a taster, here's a vid giving you an idea of how good she is and how
    complimentary her bass player is. Fucking excellent.

    Are we supposed to know who they are?

    Or is it just me?

    I saw him a couple of years back, supported by the bloke who used to be
    the lead singer in Smokie.

    Of course, he sang Living Next Door to Alice.

    And of course, the audience turned it into the Chubby Brown version!

    Not what I call folk, but whatever.
    Was OK-ish, but I shan't be rushing out to buy her stuff.

    I wouldn't have thought so, but who knows. I'm sure I'm not the only person
    to never have heard of them.
    I doubt it.

    So what exactly *is* folk music?. As it happens she does rock stuff too.
    Well rockish anyway.
    No-one appeals to everyone.

    He needs a slap for doing that.
    Well you'd *have* to wouldn't you? :)

    Talking of folk music, Richard Thompson is touring again.

    He only has 1 date near here, in Treorchy om 14 July of all places. Seems
    to be be a 600 seat theatre in the middle of the Rhondda Valley. Oh well,
    that will be an interesting drive home over the Rhigos mountain road in the
    dark. Hope the sheep are wearing fluoro-bibs...

    If you keep your headlights on main beam, they'll come to you. Saves all
    that running around I've heard. :)
