Excellent night out
First time at the new venue of Talking Heads now located at the Polygon. Very nice set up, friendly staff and an excellent bar.
Not a huge turn out but the atmosphere generated by the musicians soon had you forgetting that.
Jack Francis, a local musician, has a huge voice and wouldn't be out of place playing on any Americana bill. Ably assisted by a friend on pedal steel guitar his set went over well.
Next up were Lucas and King, also a local duo a mix of modern folk & roots. Superb voice of Bo Lucas and stunning guitar from Hayleigh King. I'd not seen or heard of them previously but will definitely keep an eye out and see them again.
On to the headliners. I'd heard a few of their songs via spotify and enjoyed them very much, but live, the songs were even better. Last night of their latest tour, which you wouldn't have known, as they gave it everything, a good mix of songs from Go Get Gone, the Burden EP and some brand new songs. A great stage presence and some good patter made for an excellent show and I'm looking forward to seeing them again.
