I had a great time seeing music last night at Light Club Lamp Shop. I arrived a little early and caught a couple of songs by Bird Full Of Trees featuring singer/songwriter Kenna Donovan, Paul Boffa on guitar and vocals, and Zach Harmon on percussion and vocals. I missed most of their show, but the closing version of Fever was pretty cool.

I chatted with James Lockridge for a bit and right before showtime I said hi to Jeremy Gilchrist.

Shortly after 9pm It was time for Cricket Blue. They are a duo made of Laura Heaberlin and Taylor Smith. They both sing and play acoustic guitar and weave their voices and melodies into a magical stream. The songs are less verse chorus and more like a classic poem incarnating before your ears and eyes. They opened with Elanor and followed with a rocking version of Angela Carter. They played a song about the milkman and said there would be a video for it coming soon. They played a song in two pieces, one written by each of the two, that nicely echoed each other. Oh My Rose from the first EP was gorgeous. The song about Elliot was fun to follow along. Kentucky started with a nice flow, has that easy to sing part, kicks the pace into full gear for a bit before dropping back to the lovely “let all that is old be made new” section. Trouble Come No More followed and its gentle beauty filled the room of enchanted listeners. They introduced the magnificent Forsythia as an unrequited love song that takes place in a garden. They closed the night with the long song that sweeps through many sections. It’s a song about the mythical corn king, also known as John Barleycorn. It’s a song about a man who dies in fire and his ashes are returned to mother earth so she can come alive again and sustain life. It was pretty magical.

I did not stay long after they were done and took the short walk home. It had been a lovely warm day and Cricket only made it better.
