August 2010

The 31 August is my birthday and wedding anniversary and so my GLW agrees that we can make a trip to Sheffield to see Simone Felice.

The Rude Shipyard in Sheffield is an interesting venue, a first floor room above a cafe in a converted end-terrace house. So it’s small. Very small. The capacity is around forty people and, as we’ve got there early, we’re near the front and no more than about six feet away from Simone. It’s a rare opportunity to see such a talented performer in such intimate surroundings.

A collection of The Duke & The King tracks, one or two Felice Brothers songs and fine covers of the Neil Young classic Helpless, Tom Waits Ol’ 55 and a snatch of Free Fallin’ by Tom Petty.

An excellent show, a sense of which can be gained from the live CD Live From A Lonely Place available from his website.
