Stunning. Think @carl has been championing him – will be ordering his album and he is playing nearby soon so will try and catch him live.
Also thats a fucking impressive cd collection whoever owns it.

Sadly @SteveT, I think tonight is the last night of tour.
We saw him last Sunday and he dedicated this song to Bob Harris – and that’s Bob’s CD collection they are performing in front of.
He is a brilliant live performer – a true natural on the stage.
I’d recommend both CDs – Angeleno is pretty damn good too.

Correction, it’s last night of this leg of the tour. He’s back and playing The Hare & Hounds on 30th August.
We’d come up for the gig if we were around.

To be fair, you can’t see what any of the things are on those shelves. It could be 8,000 unsold Mumfords CDs.

@carl was at Chuck Prophet gig on Wednesday and the promoters Cosmic American were raving about him. Just got ticket for Hare and Hounds gig and looking forward to it. Chuck was great again by the way – just gets better.

I like it. Actually, I love it. But I’m a sucker for the instrumentation he uses. So now I’m $10 down…

I saw him at Summertyne at Gateshead Sage last Saturday and thought he was dreadful. His own soundman produced a godawful mess that meant that, despite being 6 feet in front of the desk, I couldn’t hear a word he sang. I did however hear the bass and drums, as I imagine did most of the population of Newcastle. He had a backing singer who played keyboard; I swear not a single note came out. He made a crack about he was glad it was a sell-out as it costs a squillion dollars to bring over a band that size. Well here’s an idea, leave a few of them at home and use the house sound engineer. I just got the impression that he phoned it in. If he’s any good, I’d be the last one to know based on that experience

Well as a veteran of three Sam Outlaw gigs all I can say is you’ve been really unfortunate. He has been superb every time I have seen him.
That includes the first time, when I actually felt some antipathy towards him. We saw he had been added to the bill when we went to see Kelly Willis and Bruce Robison last year. That should be a nice support act I thought, only come the night we found Kelly and Bruce had been relegated to support! (In the event they got equal time). Anyway Sam came on, accompanied by Molly Jenson, and had us won over by the end of the first song. As I said above, he is a total natural on stage. He has a gift that connects him to the audience without any apparent artifice.
Last Sunday was an open air gig and the sound was absolutely fine. So for whatever reason, you were very unfortunate.

Cosmic American Music methinks !
Always loved Gram.
Really good though nonetheless.
