I love holidays. Trips and things. I am in Newcastle just now. Went to Bonnie Raitt's gig last night touring Slipstream. Its the first time she's toured for 7 years I think. She's an amazing role model. Five decades and she is still working and is better than ever.
Foy Vance was supporting her. He is a find. I haven't heard of him (not that that's surprising given I have been buried in scottish traditional or baroque opera music all year!). He played entirely solo - very hard to do. Really powerful stuff.
He has an album coming out later in the year with a backing band . Worth watching out for.
