This was a wonderful showcase for some of the areas top female singer/songwriter talent all ladies with contrasting styles put together by David Head under the DCH ENTS umbrella and took place in a top notch Rugby venue The Benn Hall, comfortable, and roomy with fab sound/lighting.
We had three ladies in action all playing a short set in each half of the evenings performance and also all taking part in a very interesting Q & A with our compare David.
Jessie May (known as Rugby's Taylor Swift) had a poppy/country style with often witty lyrics on life and loves as a teenager, bright and breezy many with plenty of audience participation and all from a young lady only seventeen but so full of confidence.
I have seen Coventry based Kristy Gallacher perform many times and she never disappoints, singing about her life experiences in her unique vocal style and her at times mesmerising guitar work which really stood out on the sublime (and my and David's favourite Kristy number) "Fending Off the Frost", also wonderful was her tribute to Fleetwood Mac's Christine McVie with an amazing take on the great bands "Little Lies" and the always fab (greatest hit) "Blood".
Which just leaves Josie Field an award winning South African born singer/songwriter with another distinctive and fine vocal style who alternated between acoustic guitar and ukulele on her folky/indie/world music style numbers including from her excellent ‘Indie Soul' album "Yolo", "Hey Yo" and "Leo" upbeat and foot-tappingly good with the addition at times a few drum beats/sounds for good measure.
A terrific nights entertainment.
