Click to hear "Wild Mountain Thyme"
Sung by Kate and the band as their last song.
Due to my mistake, Liz and myself went first to the Theatre Royal, before realising that Jac and Meg were not there, and so we were almost certainly at the wrong venue. A short walk and an even shorter car ride later, we arrived at the right place.
Kate performed simply, honestly and to a very high standard. Her co-musicians were all gifted stars in their won right, and the concert was thoroughly enjoyable all the way through.
I like her gentle girl-ish banter and her total lack of airs and graces. She is a Barnsley lass, and proud of it - accentuating the accent in her singing, if anything.
All in all, it was a performance good enough to convince a non-folk fan to buy her music and for the already converted it was delicious meat and drink. They didn't let us take photographs of her on stage, though. So, all I can offer you is a photo of the stage itself.
Best I can do.
