The crowd warmed quickly to Ethel and embraced Joe with open arms. What a great storyteller and troubadour. A tad overmiked, but his performance was heartfelt and held the audience captive with every song.
Todd was at his best from beginning to end. Jovial, sharp and sounding as good as ever. The full bodied sound of "Black and White" and Hawaiin version of "Bang the Drum" were showstoppers but the highlight was clearly the finale with all three artists contributing to "Black Maria" the best orchestration of "While My Guitar Gently Weeped" ever arranged. George was smiling down on all on stage.
Once again, Todd showed innovation and passion for his music and fans.
