Shearwater visit London (about bloody time!), return to Europe in November

(photo above of the Rough Trade East performance where they played Rook from start to finish and I nearly cried like a baby several times)

Having spent 48 hours in the company of the wonderful Shearwater I have learned the following:

1) They are an incredibly nice group of individuals,
2) Jonathan possesses a voice that defies human ability and laws of nature,
3) Tissues are absolutely necessary as losing one’s dignity at a show tends to undermine you in front of friends, esteemed colleagues and complete strangers.

Photos below of the Bush Hall show where the band (and audience) finished up proceedings around the grand piano for a stunning unplugged version of ‘Rook’ swansong The Hunter’s Star:

All photos taken by me. Big thanks to “The Power of Monk” at The Local and Phil Adams at Rough Trade East.
