An evening of song from Katie Spencer and Nicky Murray.
This is a double headline show so no support.
The way Katie plays is never contrived, showy or imitative; it sounds true … a world class folk
Katie’s guitar playing has echoes of my dear friend the late great Bert Jansch.
Like a musical weaver
she threads her poetic lyrics through the guitar’s strings and produces little tapestries of song
She makes her own quietly ingenious musical statement through the notes and silences, making
every note, phrase and musical punctuation mark
count in a deft, elegant and intelligently
undemonstrative fashion … Katie’s stylish blend of warmth and precision proves intensely
