FolkSpot live @ The Blueberry 23 February 2014

FolkSpot live broadcast from The Blueberry, Norwich. 23 February 2014, photos

After watching a highly enjoyable and satisfying 1-0 victory for Norwich, over Tottenham Hotspur, I decided to pop into the Blueberry Music House to see who was playing during the FolkSpot simultaneous broadcast. Unfortunately I missed the set by Addison’s Uncle who kicked off proceedings but that clashed exactly with the 4pm kick-off at Carrow Road. They were all still in attendance however and by all accounts it was a good and fun gig.

Just about to take the stage when I arrived was Murphy’s Lore, who got people dancing with their energetic folk. I especially enjoyed their gypsy, eastern flavoured songs.

There were a few other acts I was hearing for the first time tonight, with impressive short sets from Romy Gensale, a very young Lucy Grub, Gemma Khawaja from Cromer putting poetry into song beautifully, Jessica Aspinall, plus another chance to hear Brian Korteling. Matt Watson also made the most of his 15 minute slot with a loud and punchy performance, with a splendid audience singalong. It was also good to see Sanguine Sea again, currently making another video to follow on from the excellent Until the Cavalry Come.

Matt Watson’s track Every Heartbeat, which was selected and played by Tom Robinson for the BBC6 Music Mixtape.
