The perfect venue for an evening of stripped back blues courtesy of Rebecca Downes with her also stripped down band of right hand man Steve Birkett and on the drums Neil Ablard.

She was in fine voice for the nights two sets which covered material from her wonderful Stripped Back album including a glorious "Blues For Us" and there was a surprise with a reworking of Led Zeppelin's "Rock and Roll" which prompted an audience sing-along.

This was a night of exquisite low-key blues from one of it's greatest voices and characters and was a pleasure to be there in the intimate surroundings of Temperance.
