I saw Beth a few years ago in Ashford Kent. Playing in a church in the winter. The heating had packed in and she had a cold. Her husband Sam Amidon was playing guitar with her and she introduced him as Manuel.
She was in an absolute foul mood and refused to play Dolphins - nevertheless it was a joy to see her live and a box to tick.
Do you know Sam Amidon’s stuff?
No I’m not familiar with his work.
This might help if you have the time to check him out:
Violin & piano duo at the Wigmore Hall lunchtime concert today.
Ravel, Stravinsky and Arvo Pärt’s beautiful Spiegel im Spiegel.
Arthur Brown at the Flowerpot, Derby on April 19th. Has a cracking band and always puts on a good show. Last time I saw him, he encored with Green Manalishi, which alone is enough to make me visit Derby, when not much else would. Apologies to any Rams out there
Oh forgot,also Crowded House.
Lindisfarne in Newbury and probably a concert in the Newbury Spring Festival
