Live reviews

Peter Rowan

The Rock, Maltby Friday 23 November 2007 If Peter Rowan seemed a little subdued at the Rock tonight, the blame could be directed towards one or either of the following; it had something to do with him being in the middle of a UK tour during the current British November chill, or more likely, it...

Roy Machin and Mike Miller

The Regent, Doncaster Monday 12 November 2007 Standing in for Dave Burland at short notice at The Regent tonight was a bunch of friends who were only too willing to help out under the sad circumstances. I'm sure that everyone associated with the club would like to wish Dave all the very best...

Megson

The Regent, Doncaster Monday 5 November 2007 Bob Chiswick continues to bring both new (or should that be 'nu'?) as well as more established acoustic acts to the Regent and tonight was an especially inspired choice. Megsons' reputation has been steadily growing over the last couple of years, with...

Steve Tilston

The Regent, Doncaster Monday 29 October 2007 Steve Tilston is no stranger to these parts and should, in a perfect world, fill large concert halls. Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on how you see the current acoustic music scene), Steve remains slightly cultish amongst those of us who love...

Rab Noakes

The Regent, Doncaster Monday 15 October 2007 Rab Noakes' contribution to music over the last four decades has been remarkable to say the least. Mention of Leiber and Stoller, Terry Melcher, Ringo Starr, Lindisfarne, Stealer's Wheel, Barbara Dickson and Gerry Rafferty from the past and more recently...

Kirsty McGee and Mat Martin

The Regent, Doncaster Monday 8 October 2007 When Kirsty McGee and Mat Martin are on tour, they mean business. The pile of assorted instrument cases by the stage at Bob Chiswick's Monday Music Club at the Regent in Doncaster tonight resembled that famous 'pile of suitcases' sculpture on Hope Street...

Nancy Kerr and James Fagan

The Rock, Maltby Friday 5 October 2007 Believe it or not, Nancy Kerr and James Fagan have been working together as a duo on the folk scene for twelve years now and in that time they have managed to make several albums, walk away with the Horizon Award at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards in 2003, tour...

Claire Hamill

The Regent, Doncaster Monday 1 October 2007 At the tender age of thirteen, I had plenty of distractions to take my mind off algebra. One was reading Melody Maker from cover to cover, as well as The New Musical Express, Disc (and Music Echo) and Sounds. Another was Emma Peel, for obvious reasons...

Rachel Unthank and the Winterset

The Drill Hall, Lincoln Wednesday 26 September 2007 Rachel Unthank and the Winterset are currently enjoying widespread approval from music fans young and old and not just from the world of folk music. Their critically acclaimed second album THE BAIRNS has received a resounding thumbs up from most...

Devon Sproule

Drill Hall, Lincoln Wednesday 26 September 2007 With so many great singer songwriters about these days, especially in light of the fact that MySpace creates one per minute, it's becoming rare for me to want to dwell on just the one for more than is absolutely necessary. Tonight however, as soon as...
