Up Close and Local – Review

Up Close and Local:

Reviewed by Angela Velu

It was an evening full of unexpected delights, an eclectic mix of ages and styles with the common theme an abundance of talent and musicality.

The evening took off with a delightful set from the very talented young star Amelia Harrison which included a charming version of the Beatles’ ‘Here Comes the Sun’ and a gutsy rendering of the Kinks’ classic ‘Lola’.

We then had a lovely melodic set from Kent Scott, the Birmingham singer song writer followed by the beautiful voice of Ellie Galvin who sang some of her own compositions and finished with a tribute to Harvey Andrews.

The second half kicked off with Mick Burrows who captured the audience with his virtuoso guitar playing and haunting vocals. Finally the evening was rounded off with a spell binding performance from James Clay. His ‘back to basics’ acoustic set with guitar, harmonica and vocal gave us a very memorable end to an evening of fantastic entertainment and musicianship.
