Jarrod Dickenson – Cambridge Folk Festival – Interview

Jarrod Dickenson – Cambridge Folk Festival – Interview

Labeled as a ‘Texas Troubadour’, the title is fitting for artist Jarrod Dickenson, whom I met up with at the recent Cambridge Folk Festival.   I had the immense pleasure of seeing his stunning set while there as well.  With his smooth, velvety voice coupled in the languorous and easy style he occupies, Jarrod comes across in the most unassuming yet talented way. He is liquid and thoughtful in his delivery and attentive in the details. …

Jack Broadbent -Cambridge Folk Festival – Interview

Jack Broadbent -Cambridge Folk Festival – Interview

At the historic Cambridge Folk Festival, the musically brilliant Jack Broadbent took some time to discuss his origins in music, playing with Ronnie Wood and what lies ahead for rest of the year and into 2020. Categorically, this is an artist like you have never seen before.  Jack can alternate between blues and folk without any hesitation and it all feels organic and true as he does so.  With every song, he just kills it. …

Review: Our View From The Latitude Festival

Review:  Our View From The Latitude Festival

Another year, another Latitude Festival over and done with too quickly. The festival tone always seems to balance beautifully somewhere between travelling circus and amusement mecca.  It’s a wicked wonderland of the magical mixed with solid performances across the entire entertainment spectrum.  This festival is a must-see for me yearly and it never disappoints.  It is a carnival ride of wacky and gorgeously out-of-bounds on occasion but that is what makes it unique.  There was…

Gig Review: The Manic Street Preachers at The Cambridge Corn Exchange

Gig Review:  The Manic Street Preachers at The Cambridge Corn Exchange

Taking the stage with a 6-strong set of accomplished rockers, the Cambridge Corn Exchange was host to The Manic Street Preachers, The Manics as they are affectionately known, on Tuesday night. Not deviant or raucous but clear in their message and delivery. They are levelling in somewhat somber tones that the band tends to exist in. The Manics always hint at the sorrowful and are equally serious in nature, which is a constant undercurrent running…
