“I mean all the bullshit that comes out of my mouth!”
The rising profile of country music in the UK brings many benefits, but one major drag: show clashes! Country Music Week was a case in point. With a packed schedule of up to three quality shows per night, fans, artists and industry folks alike looked pained when talking about the difficult decisions they had to make.
There’s a solution for those of us that are trying to cover the scene as comprehensively as possible – hot footing it across town to a second show. That’s why I was all packed up and ready to run to the C2C festival launch party after catching a few songs of the headliner at The Borderline. That was until Sonia Leigh took the stage. With a voice, sound and performance like that there wasn’t a chance in hell I was leaving. Coat off, bag off, game on.
