BFR presents Wooden Arms & friends, Milly Hirst @ Rumsey Wells 4 November

BFR presents Wooden Arms & friends – Milly Hirst, An Early Aeronaut, Triette at Rumsey Wells, Norwich 4th November 2013

A lovely little relaxed and informal gig at the Rumsey on a cold autumnal Monday evening but with a warm sound and atmosphere.

Starting the music this evening was Jeff Smith aka An Early Aeronaut playing a very sweet and moody but all too brief set of three or four songs. He has a fine and expressive voice with delicate guitar playing – as evidenced by his work in Wooden Arms. I’d like to hear more.

Following on with a short set of her own was Milly Hirst, with her always emotive and expressive songs, and her guitar playing was faultless. She played I Still, Book or a Film, Gentle Sailor, and Heptonstall Old Church.

Next in this Bare Feet Records showcase was an act I hadn’t seen before, called Triette. Playing a mixture of Irish and French celtic/gallic shanty style folk songs it was a really uplifting treat. I gather they usually play as a trio with a fiddle player which I imagine would complete their sound perfectly but that’s not to say they didn’t sound marvellous as a duo tonight – they did.

The evening was rounded off by a five-piece Wooden Arms tonight, playing a set of mainly new material with just Separate the Verb, Noah, and False Start from their earlier recordings (of only about a year ago!) played tonight. They sounded so warm and lovely in this pub setting with all the wood around the place.
