Simply extraordinary and surreal experience!
In the audience for this most talented of men, whose songs have soundtracked my life for the past 10 years or more, were a delightful couple who’d driven down to Huddersfield from Bedale, North Yorkshire, my wife and myself, who’d driven over from Shipley, 3 people whose names I didn’t get ; and a guy who had driven up earlier on Sunday, just to see Murray perform-he was driving back that night. And that was it! EIGHT of us had made the effort to see this charming man. What went wrong? Surely someone, somewhere had not done their job. Murray Lightburn is deserving of a much greater audience. Can’t believe that only 3 people from Huddersfield, possibly, wanted to see the lead singer of The Dears, perform in the most intimate gig I’ve ever experienced.
Anyway, if Murray was disappointed or demoralised, he didn’t let it show. He played a fantastic acoustic set including a good amount of Dears’ classics.
Shook hands after what was a brilliant set. His voice is true live and he can scream in tune too. A truly memorable night. Genuinely emotional experience!
