Great write up Keith, just to add....

Last night’s gig was electric, a tight trio allowed Thompson room to indulge in some stunning lead guitar playing. The classic Red Stratocaster's tone bent and twisted twang in support with his trademark lyrics. Tightly but sparsely arranged, each song sparked with snarling energy which was first-class stuff. At 69 years of age, he’s still a tremendously compelling writer and performer.
The trio of Thompson on guitar and vocals and Michael Jerome (drums) and Taras Prodaniuk (bass) had a real feel for the material and which allowed Thompson to bring a spontaneous energy to each song.
One of our best songwriters, Thompson delivered a good mix of vintage songs and tracks from new album 13 Rivers. Whilst the fans clearly loved the Fairport Convention numbers and classics like Beeswing, the songs from the new album are superb, delivered with an energy and swagger that few performers of any generation can equaly.
Another great gig. 8)

Cheers and well done Jim, I wrote early this morning before the school run and there was no set list or photo's then posted later hoping there would be some but no luck.

On Saturday evening we travelled to Birmingham Arena to see Jeff Lynne’s ELO. They were fabulous - nice mix of all the old favourites. We sat in the downstairs section but they might as well have taken the seats away as, with the exception of When I Was A Boy, everyone was standing for the evening. We were also treated to Handle With Care and they finished with Mr Blue Sky (by this point the whole arena was on its feet) to be followed with an encore of Roll Over Beethoven. The whole set comprised 19 songs and was about 90 minutes. The band is exceptionally good, in particular their violinist, who nailed the opening of Livin’ Thing, which is not easy to do. A thoroughly enjoyable evening.

I have been tempted by several gigs at Pocklington but although its not 'that' far some one put the Humber in the way which doubles the time it would take to get there. :roll:

Glad you had fun

Hi James,
Worth the trip esp. if it is for a band or artist you really like.
I have seen a few bands and artists there and have always enjoyed it.
Often after the gig you get to meet the artist and band.
My one regret was not getting to see Roger McGuinn (Byrd’s founder) there a few years ago.
