Suffolk Band

September 28, 2010 musicianbelindashave

On first hearing a snippet of the ‘Break on the Border’ live gig at The Anchor in Stratford St. Mary a couple of weeks ago my initial impression was that there would be space for some lyrical Cello lines within the ballad-type structure.  Little did I know then of the variey of style and repertoire visited by the band; ‘stripped down Country Blues’ doesn’t totally cover it although this is how they choose to describe themselves.  ‘Stripped down’, because of the minimal make up of instruments, allowing each a generous amount of exposure within the ensemble.  Consisting essentially of vocals, accoustic guitars, percussion and bassline, each player is afforded the freedom to individual interpretation of the songs, deciding what and how we can contribute to the set chord structure.  This band have certainly taken songs and made them their own.

Rehearsing with them for the first time this evening marked the start of something good and promises some excellent live gigs in the coming months, (usually held on the third Thursday of every month at local venues).
