GIG REVIEW: Acoustic Sessions, The Tally Ho, Barrow, Saturday April 21
THIS all-night acoustic gig was already in full flow when I arrived at the Tally Ho, with Perry and Rick, the Two Deadmen from Deadman’s Tequila going through their stripped-down set.
Earlier in the evening, Zach and Robbie had played a set of Oasis and Kooks covers, followed by a set from Steve and Martin from the band Livin’ Endlessly. Solo performer Joe Chapman also delivered some acoustic tunes, reminiscent of the much missed Jeff Buckley.
Following the Two Deadmen, Joe Slater played a single acoustic song and received much applause. Young singer-songwriter Jade Connolly was up next for a brief stint on stage, with her well chosen mix of original compositions and contemporary cover versions. Songs such as Is That Alright? showed the diminutive singer’s powerful voice off to great effect.
Mr Jeff took to the stage next, with his set of choice cover versions and the odd original song.
Barrow certainly has no shortage of acoustic performers, and tonight was a good showcase for just some of them.
