I don’t usually do concert reviews – in fact, I think the last time was in the early 70s – but I liked her latest CD so much – see SARAH McQUAID – If We Dig Any Deeper It Could Get Dangerous (Shovel And A Spade Records SAASCD001) – that I went (at my own expense!) to the launch concert at the Acorn in Penzance, and then reviewed that as well…
Sarah McQuaid CD launch tour – 25th January 2018
You won’t be surprised to learn that I liked it very much. With one exception, Sarah’s current tour (Tewkesbury on January 30th – sorry for the short notice!) doesn’t come very close to the Sabrinaflu area, but I’d encourage you to check out her CD(s) and tour schedule anyway. 🙂
Another review for Folking.com. Miller has been compared to Guy Clark, Gene Clark, Townes Van Zandt et al, though that might be overstating it a bit.
TRENT MILLER – Time Between Us (Bucketfull Of Brains BOB801)
Another review for Folking.com. A fascinating blend of early music and folk:
…is now up at Folking.com.
As I may have mentioned before, I like it a lot. 🙂
I gather from Fergus Reid that the current landlord at the Wheatsheaf is happy for the open mic to continue. I’m not sure if there’ll be one this Wednesday (17th January) though.
In case anyone was wondering, yes, I have heard the new CD If We Dig Any Deeper It Could Get Dangerous, and as mentioned here I submitted a review to Folking.com a few days ago, but it hasn’t appeared so far. I’ll link to it from this site when it appears, but for now I’ll just say that I like it very much indeed. 🙂
(The CD, not the review.)
