A Whole Week Of Girl Power!
This week has been a real GIRL POWER week as Martha Wainwright and The Be Good Tanyas all blew us away. Martha Wainwright’s show at Komedia last Thursday was a sensational, raw, emotional performance after the loss of her mother, singing her mother’s songs and baring her soul to the crowd with ‘sad songs about being out of love and sad songs about being in love’. Her voice is superb, and her mesmerising version of her mother’s song ‘Proserpina‘ had some audience members in tears. A powerful experience for everyone there! With Fran Smith as support the Northern singer-songwriter was also on form as an excellent support for the night. She met Martha at Hebden Bridge and apparently asked her for the support, and we’re glad she did!
Last night we welcomed The Be Good Tanyas to St George’s Church who engaged with the audience and brought along some pretty good Neil Young covers! From their songs including ‘Littlest Birds‘ to more Gospel numbers we loved their calm and relaxing, happy show. Support from their guitarist Phil Cook brought a more bluesy, jazzy guitar music as support and a perfect start to the evening.
