Masterclass in mellow Americana
Trevor at The Cluny; that can only mean one thing - there’s a new album to launch - Yipee!!!
As usual Trevor is one to showcase up & coming new talent and tonight was no different with a sprightly duo Rod Clements & Ian Thompson taking an acoustic break from their usual band Lindisfarne. Not resting on the laurels only a couple of Lindisfarne numbers were included in their set the first being Train In G Major - well actually in E Major, probably a touch of restoration down at Locomotion…. What Rod & Ian did deliver between them was a mellow masterclass in Americana, from Shreveport to Bouder as well as a nod to former collaborator Bert Jansch with Ramblings Gonna Be The Death Of Me. However, you can’t take the man out of Lindisfarne, so we were left with a great reminder, Meet Me On The Corner.
Well, Trevor had his work cut out following that… but he managed it. Calling in his usual band, plus a couple of backing singers, including Theresa Watson, we got a great selection of the best from Independence, a couple of slices from The Hollow but the main filling was from Calling Nashville . If the previous show (above) had a “celtic” feel, then this was more snapshots of Americana; probably the accordion in the band lent a more Cajun feel, not unlike Little Feat, with some side order of Country here and there.
Can’t really say that Trevor has great seismic shifts in his sound overall, so can’t really expand on the review but he’s not afraid to look round the doors of new styles and influences and the opportunity on the new album to work with the likes of Janis Ian has left it’s stamp.
In all, another relaxed session of great song-writing & mellow playing to a well filled Cluny.
