Ohh lala. This was very special, very special indeed. I arrived , unfortunately late , at the second song and so when I walked in , I saw Mr Healy , on stage, his figurine looking ever so perfect and his music , sounding first class , as ones ears have come to expect.
He is a perfectionist ,his keen ear wanting us to hear those special songs at their best. His other skills of storytelling , chat style , were at a premium and his natural intimacy with his audience was well appreciated tonight .I
think (and hope) we will see more of
this . Each song holds its own and thats the difference for me, not many musicians achieve that today.
Highlights for me were 'Rocking Chair', the enormous appreciation for 'Buttercups' and 'As you are'. Stories of little Clay, so lovable ,thanks so much for sharing these.
Having achieved that , he found the time to speak and share his very gentle spirit afterwards with his fans.
