Andy Gunn , with support from ACT, at Eden Court, Inverness.

Friday 23rd brought a really fine night of blues to the One Touch Theatre in Inverness. Liz Jones & Suzy Cargill opened the evening with a set for voice, guitar, djembe and mandolin. Liz usually plays with a six piece outfit but tonight the songs  – most of which feature on her album ‘Broken Windows’ – are given a stripped back rendering and it works a treat.

Liz joined Andy Gunn on stage for a set that contained many highlights. The rhythm section were absolutely solid allowing Andy Gunn to shine particularly bright this evening. There were stunning contributions on sax, piano and harp during a set that was varied (there was an on-going rotation of performers on stage), sophisticated and well paced. Three hours fizzed past and it was pretty clear on the evidence of tonight’s showing that the rave reviews for Andy’s recent release ‘Too Many Guitars To Give Up Now’ are well deserved. Brilliant evening, happy crowd, catch them live while you can.

Details of further dates.

Life-long engagement with music and a truly eclectic taste (although prog-rock and metal will usually have me scrambling for the off button). If pushed, I would have to say the Velvet Underground are one of the most important band’s of all time. Although I consider myself first and foremost a photographer, as regards reviewing I guess I cut my teeth in the vibrant fanzine scene of the 80’s. Around the same time I started taking photographs and, to be brief, performance and photography were made for each other: perfect match.
