Mrs F really like The Shires. We saw them on tour a year or so back ... anyway I saw them back at Folkestone and only two weeks after Mrs F's birthday - so ... Birthday Treat!
First up a quick mention of Catherine McGarth who was support act and suddenly has invaded my world. I heard a track on Bob Harris' show on Thursday, she was there live on Friday and then my Guitarist magazine falls through the door on Saturday and there's a full page intro and interview with her in that. She'd only 19!!! One to watch.
The Shires - just brilliant. One of those acts that can simply deliver. They can sing so well live, if anything better than in the studio. A good collection of songs from both albums, varying of tempo etc. and a simply stunning cover of Robbie Williams' Angels. That should be a single - it was just fantastic!!!
My ear was a bit problematic at times, tinnitus was bad that day, but good old noise reducing earplugs helped and I enjoyed it all. Thoroughly recommended
