A feast of live music...

...on rootsandshoots this evening.
Hear the show again here.

We had a whale of a time in the studio tonight and hope you listeners enjoyed the feast of live music as much at home.

It was good to welcome back to Phonic FM ace local singer, guitarist, songwriter Jaime Leigh who joined me to play recordings of her choice.

From London, Marcus Bonfanti gave us an amazing live performance. Marcus is fast building a reputation for his own blues influenced music - and we found out why. Great songs, delivered in Marcus's deep, rich and expressive voice and a guitar style that just sings.

In the studio Marcus sang and played
The Bittersweet, Devil Girl and What Good Am I To You?
From his album Medicine Man we played
Honey and St James' Infirmary.
All except for the last track are written by Marcus.

See Marcus's website where you can find details of his gigs, more information on his music and albums. His new EP Medicine Man is only on sale at his gigs so get along to one or more!

Jaime Leigh also sang and played for us live, at times accompanied by top folk fiddler (on viola and violin) 
Ben van Weede. Beautiful songs written by Jaime plus a snazzy bluegrass number with Ben contributing a mean fiddle accompaniment. The songs: A Friend Like You; Painted Smiles; Finding My Ground (available on Jaime's album of the same name); Blackberry Blossom.

We are indebted to these highly entertaining and gifted musicians.
