Playing tracks by
Tom McRae & The Standing Band, Brian Wright, Beth Orton, One Cure For Man, Lifehouse and more.
This show was 22nd in the global indie rock chart and 36th in the global folk chart.
Kicking off #Gigtober in such style I couldn't resist playing another song from Tom McRae's (& The Standing Band) latest album followed by Brian Wright. A further link to track 3 is that cellist Oli Krauss played on Beth Orton's album Trailer Park.
Then, 2 songs from the superb new album from One Cure For Man before song 2of5 from US band Lifehouse. The 1st of 2 tracks (2nd on #50) from Villagers shares one from 2013's Awayland before the enchanting US band Other Lives take you to a whole other place with a song from their debut album. Sarah McLachlan provides a welcome blast from the past before a live gem from Kenneth J Nash & Fran Taylor from recent EP Live at the Old Hotel.
Fabulous Folkstock provide a song from the wonderful Daria Kulesh, from a forthcoming compilation album, from which I'll be playing more over next few shows. Those marvellous Moulettes play us out with Lullaby from the Land of Hope&Fury protest comp. album.
