Kris Delmhorst at Green Note

Wow what a fantastic night – the last of Kris Delmhorst‘s UK tour, accompanied by Hayward Williams.  This was our second night at Green Note in just a few days, having been there the previous Tuesday to see Jo Lawry.

Kris played quite a few of the songs from her new album ‘Blood Test’ and also some older numbers. She seemed to be having a great time, making fun of Hayward about not being able to read her writing, so not knowing what song was coming next.  The venue was full and the audience most appreciative.

There’s a nice review of the evening on Music Riot.

Here are the Kris and Hayward on YouTube (at another venue):

Getting up for work at 06:30 the next morning was a bit of a challenge!

Here’s a great interview/session:

Jo Lawry at Green Note

So, last night, 14 April 2015, we went to see Jo Lawry at Green Note in Camden.  She’s just completed a tour promoting her new album ‘Taking Pictures’, in between appearing as a featured vocalist with Sting and Paul Simon on their current world tour headlining at major venues.

Another great evening – Jo has an amazing voice and the songs from the new album were really excellent. I particualarly liked the title track and ‘I said No’, along with her diet with husband Will Vinson on Saxaphone.

Of particular note was Jamey Haddad’s subtle and unconventional percussion, involving sawn-off brooms and thighs.
