Anaïs Mitchell and Jefferson Hamer, The Blind Tiger Club, Brighton. February 26th 3013

Never let it be said that Anaïs Mitchell is one to rest on her laurels! She followed the release of her folk-rooted debut and sophomore albums with the ambitious folk opera HADESTOWN, she then took on the persona of a YOUNG MAN IN AMERICA and is once again forging a different path, this time with collaborator, Jefferson Hamer, by reinterpreting some of the ballads collected by Sir Francis James Child, in their duet album, CHILD BALLADS. 

Tonight’s show was the first in a three-month…

Richard Thompson, The Dome, Brighton. February 22nd 2013

Richard Thompson, one of British folk’s national treasures, has recently released an album titled ELECTRIC which has been so well received that many are saying that it is his best one for years! Taking it out on the road, accompanied by Michael Jerome on drums and Taras Prodaniuk on bass, the trio are whipping up a storm and I was privileged to witness them take the stage at Brighton’s Dome and play their hearts out for nigh on two hours.

What can I say about Thompson that hasn’t…

Phil Lee: The Fall & Further Decline of The Mighty King of Love

http://www.philleeone.com/

      The Mighty King of Love is back, sounding as much like Dylan’s twisted kid brother as he ever did, and hauling along with him a particularly luminous cast of Nashville’s finest.  George Bradfute was at the helm in his Tone Chapparal studio – virtually a hallmark of quality in itself, to…
