Double whoo-hoo, Colin!!. Or should that be Who-hoo? Who tix, Indigo2, Central Balcony Sunday 14 Dec. Make arrangements later, but I'll probably crash at my neices in East London, but very grateful for the offer, which I'll probably take up for the Clapton gig.

Not "much action going on" regarding concerts at the moment over here in the Netherlands. Some local stuff only.
Can't wait to see Jack Bruce & Robin Trower in february (Nijmegen, Netherlands) and

First of all thanks for the DVDs and hope you enjoy what Stevie still has to offer. We saw him at The Arches in Glasgow in October. The venue is like it says on the tin, under the railway arches leading into Glasgow's Central station. Sometimes you can't help but hear various mystery trains chundering overhead making their way to rock n' roll hotspots like Johnstone or Largs.

SW and his band were wonderful. Played stuff that appealed to us old Traffic fans ( "Empty Pages", Get Up etc" & "Low Spark") more than maybe his "Higher Love" 80s followers.

Hopefully all us UK Hittin' The Webbers will have a chance to meet up sometime soon.

Where even Alex Salmond has got soul ,

Shug from Scotland

Hi Shug ... glad you're enjoying those Planet Hophead DVDs ... that dTb with a 16 year old Derek is something else!!!

Like you, I am really pleased Stevie is doing some of the old Traffic numbers ... really hope we get a "Low Spark" as that is my favourite Traffic era

Transatlantic Sessions "Bringing it all Back Home"

Friday 30th January 2009, 7.30pm
Glasgow Royal Concert Hall : Auditorium


As a fitting finale to Celtic Connections’ celebration of Homecoming Scotland 2009, this year’s Transatlantic Sessions will highlight the traditional songs and tunes which crossed the Atlantic with Scottish and Irish emigrants over the last 300 years, to form a key bedrock of American roots music. From the Appalachian Mountains to Greenwich Village coffeehouses; from the trailblazing careers of Woody Guthrie and Pete Seeger to today’s post – O Brother, Where Art Thou? revival, these transplanted Celtic roots have continued to evolve and flourish in New World soil, and these two very special shows will see them welcomed back home by a dazzling international cast of musicians.


From across the pond, featured vocalists include the much-loved country-folk star Nanci Griffith, reconnecting with her own Scottish roots, and fellow Grammy-winner Kathy Mattea, whose haunting 2008 album Coal draws on her family’s history in the mines and mountains of Appalachia. Also among the Stateside singers, Dan Tyminski will be familiar to many as a linchpin of Alison Krauss’s Union Station and as the voice of George Clooney from the aforementioned Coen brothers film O Brother, Where Art Thou?, while Transatlantic Sessions regulars Tim O’Brien, Bruce Molsky and Dirk Powell once again juggle vocal and multi-instrumental duties. Joining this stellar line-up are the exquisite Scottish and Gaelic voices of Eddi Reader and Julie Fowlis.


Ultra-classy accompaniment and awesome instrumentals will be supplied by a similarly crème-de-la-crème array of US and Celtic talent, once again under the musical direction of Shetland fiddle maestro Aly Bain and dobro legend Jerry Douglas. Others confirmed to appear include accordion ace Phil Cunningham, Capercaillie’s Donald Shaw and Michael McGoldrick, ex-Solas guitarist John Doyle, bassist Todd Parks and drummer James Mackintosh. Following last year’s double sellout, the concert will again be staged twice, with all featured artists appearing on both nights, and is sure to be remembered as one of the year’s best homecoming parties.

Tickets: £26, £24, £22

Jerry Douglas Band and Cherryholmes

Saturday 31st January 2009, 9.30pm
Old Fruitmarket

Arriving at Celtic Connections fresh from his 2008 sojourn as Artist in Residence at Nashville’s Country Music Hall of Fame, dobro maestro Jerry Douglas is one of America’s most inspirational musicians. A 12-time Grammy-winner, who has featured on over 2000 recordings by other artists, Douglas also released his 12th solo album, Glide, in 2008, showcasing the full breadth and depth of his mastery across tracks that draw on bluegrass, country, rock, Celtic, blues and New Orleans influences. He appears with his regular touring band of Luke Bulla (fiddle), Guthrie Trapp (guitar), Todd Parks (bass) and Chad Melton (drums).


Arguably the hottest new act to hit the bluegrass scene this century, the family band Cherryholmes continue to forge ahead on their new album Cherryholmes III: Don’t Believe. Returning after their hit performance at Celtic Connections 2008, with a sound featuring fiddle, banjo, mandolin, bass, guitar and clogging, and all six members taking lead vocal turns, their live impact is nothing short of sensational.

Tickets: £16

Hi Derek! Needless to say I've already booked the Friday and Saturday to see Jerry at Glasgow. Should be a blast. Hope to see James McMurtry on the Sunday.
Don't think I'll make Merlefest09, so disappointed with the line up. Smacks of budgetary constraints? Where's Gillian, Chris Thile, Grisman, Darrell, Bryan Sutton, Steve Earle etc etc??
Beacon for sure.......
Take care.
Nick

Steve Winwood’s show at the Shepherd’s Bush Empire on Saturday night was above even my most optimistic expectations. The Shepherd’s Bush Empire, an old 1920’s “arte deco” theatre in the vein of the Beacon but about 2/3 the size holding around 2000 people, is great venue. The sound is very good and the theatre is so compact that on the level one balcony (equivalent to the Loge at the Beacon) where I was sat in row 3, the stage could not be more than 30 yards or so away.

This was “an evening with” type show, without a support act, and so we had to wait until about 8-30 until Steve and the band came on stage. But it was well worth the wait, and they played until 10-30 including the encore, so whilst not as long as an ABB Beacon show, it was none the less pretty good value.

The band was pretty tight, and special mention ought to be given to the Saxophonist who not only was very good on the wind instruments, but was also pretty good on the keyboards when he sat in for the numbers that Winwood played guitar on. The 5 man line-up was as follows:

Steve Winwood – Vocals, Hammond Organ, Lead Guitar.
Jose Neto – Lead and Rhythm guitar.
Paul Booth – sax (various), Flute and Hammond Organ.
Richard Bailey – Drums.
Karl van den Bosh – Percussion.

The set list included a bit of everything to please everyone. He started off with a track (Different Light) from his 2003 album “About Time”, and the set also included four tracks (Hungry Man, Dirty City, Fly and At Times We Do Forget) off his latest 2008 album “Nine Lives”, and a token track (Higher Love) from his 80’s efforts. But the other eight tracks were all from his early career with Spencer Davis, Blind Faith and Traffic – right up my alley!!! Set list was as follows:

Set 1:
Different Light
I’m a Man
Hungry Man
Can’t Find My Way Home
Dirty City
Fly
At Times We Do Forget
Light Up or Leave Me Alone
Low Spark of High Heeled Boys
Empty Pages
Keep on Running
Higher Love

Encore:
Dear Mr Fantasy
Gimme Some Lovin’

Despite the blues basis of much of the earlier work, the rhythms throughout were very Latin American influenced, making it very difficult to pigeon hole to overall sound. All I can say is that it was a bluesy, jazzy, funky, latino fusion which worked very well. Steve was in excellent voice, and addition to his very competent Hammond playing, when he strapped on his turquoise Strat he showed what a very accomplished guitar player he is too, the rendition of “Dear Mr Fantasy” was as good as I've heard.

Overall an excellent show from start to finish, might have been slightly better if his friend EC had dropped by, but how often do we say that? If he is down your way, go and see him, you will be in for a treat.

They're called Two Fingers of Firewater.
You can check them out on their myspace site.
Got some nice photos of them but I don't know how to get them posted on here.

You too, Colin.

We waited outside and saw you but couldn't get through the crowd!

I was hoping for something from Arc of a Diver - title track, While You See A Chance, Spanish Dancer, Night Train etc - but was good fun nonetheless.

Didn't have you down as an alt/country boy. Where in Putney was it? My band is always looking for new places to play, and an alt/country venue would be great.

I'm going to see Skinny Molly in Whetstone on Friday. They'll be playing playing the Half Moon in Herne Hill on Saturday but I'll be at the Bedford Park for Medicine Hat then. Gotta give a plug to Medicine Hat boys as they are really really good. And they come from the UK too.
