Live Night reputation grows and grows…
Apologies for the wait, but with Colin out of action and unable to attend Fritwell Live on the 17th, we had to find someone else to write a review.
This proved to be another very busy evening filled with excellent artists. Highlights included a much improved set by The Incorrigibles, who have clearly been practising hard. We were treated to a brilliant version of KT Tunstall’s “Other Side of the World” by Skye Lily on ukulele before hearing from young Ben Wheeler, who silenced the room with a rendition of The Feeling’s “Rosé”. Newcomer Robbie treated us to some tunes from the land of his fathers, and regular Will Vetcher performed a tight set with Sue “the violin” under the banner “Burning Violin”. We particularly enjoyed their rendition of Paul Weller’s “Wild Wood”. Bert Honour excelled once again with some fantastic original material, and we look forward to hearing more from him. Jay’s version of “The Long and Winding Road” had us in bits! Frets and Strings performed their entire Front Row set in two parts featuring Jenny on “Walking on Sunshine” and “Don’t Stop Believing”. A lively crowd enjoyed the efforts of all who made this event happen, served beer and made the music sound fab! A special mention must go to Frets and Strings guitar student Beth who got up and played and sang for us. Her first-ever live performance. This takes a lot of courage, but she handled the experience brilliantly!
We are still working on a date for the next one but will let you know as soon it is confirmed. Thank you for continuing to support this great community event.”
