the button Rachel Unthank & The Winterset (245* d) RE: Rachel Unthank & The Winterset 12 May 08


Just got back from the Shaw Theatre, and they were the best I've seen them yet -- they've really come on since the tour to promote The Bairns (when I first saw them "live").

If anything, they were a bit more "traddie" than they used to be -- we had more unaccompanied stuff, including a song about whaling I haven't heard before (thought I knew 'em all ;-)) sung by the sisters with different (and breathtaking) harmonies for every verse. They also gave the fiddler a solo spot, singing something in a mixture of Irish and English, and all unaccompanied. Lovely stuff.

Maybe it was the venue or just a good night, but Becky's voice tonight was a revelation. I've always preferred her voice to Rachel's, but tonight she was amazing.
