It's very rare that we get out in the evening to live gig but delighted to see advertised in the local paper - Rory McLeod at the Northwich Folk Club! So we went along last night and enjoyed it very much though I did drink rather too much Theakston's Olde Perculier ale which went straight to my head! The folk club is held every week or maybe its a fortnight? in the bar of the small theatre in town. Weve been to see theatre groups and dance projects there before but never any live music. The last time we saw Rory was in the late 80's when we lived in London and he appeared ( and stole the show ) at the Queen Elizabeth Hall ( or was it the Purcell Room? ) with another folk band ( who we soon forgot ) but bought a couple of Rory's CD's , we enjoyed his performance so much. He is still as brilliant live and the small intimate space of the bar made it even more special- like being in someones front room! Afterwards we bought his latest CD " Songs For Big Little People" and he kindly signed it for us- " health and joy to you- Rory x " . You can see some of Rory's videos on You Tube.
