Fantastic night last night, the last of a run of gigs. This time it was Hugh Laurie with the Copper Bottom Band. Too much to do for a proper write up today, but suffice to say Hugh as expected was a wonderful frontman with a natural rapport and skillful fingers on the piano, if not the best vocalist. His band were truly awesome; I sat spellbound by their combined talent. But the winner of the night on an evening where most were there to see their favourite comedian was The Blues – a perfect introduction to the genre by this talented team of musos. Hugh Laurie’s love of it was infectiously clear for all see, as was the sheer fun of their making music together. Brilliant. Go see.
