The session with Cole Stacey and
Chris Woods on rootsandshoots
this evening was highly entertaining.
Chris began. He showed his skill on the guitar by playing a composition of his own Resilience ...which aptly demonstrated the amazing percussive effects he can achieve on the instrument.
Chris accompanied Cole on the banjo - another instrument he plays exceedingly well - as Cole sang and played guitar for his own song Light A Candle.
Cole is a passionate and inspirational performer and is increasingly in demand for gigs across the country. He and Chris are nearing the end of a highly successful tour together. Locally, you can catch them at The Globe, Topsham this Wednesday 26 October if you can get a ticket.
Cole also gave us If You, a version of which is on his album Changing Faces.
Cole brought an album along by an idol of his- and a big influence on his music - Paul Simon. From this album Rhyming Simon he played Something So Right.
Without too much arm twisting, Chris gave us another two superbly played tunes of his: Night Life and Rolling Hills.
Many, many thanks to these two talented guys.
