If you get the chance to see her, take it! Book it the second you see tickets available. You. Will. Not. Regret. It.
There were two warm up acts – the excellent ‘In fear of Olive’, a Yorkshire based quartet with a sort of revivally-rock-folk thing working very well for them.
I really enjoyed their set and have a feeling that one day in the not too distant future I’ll be bragging about how I once saw them in a teeny tiny venue and how I threw the bassist completely by asking for a CD!
The second warm up group were the Clifford Village Band. Though they were very enthusiastic and the two leads seemed to have decent vocals – there were some real sound issues and with the instruments dominating. Which included flutes and a saxophone looking thing.
To be honest, I was left a bit cold (and not just from the venue). The lead singer had a very manic sort of energy that the rest of the band did not seem to share at all.
Additionally; they kind of provided their own harmonies while Lindi was singing. Which was…creative yes, but also a touch on the annoying side.
