“Melisa Kelly is a great singer with a great voice”
— Justin Currie, Del Amitri
With plaudits under her belt from the likes of Jools Holland’s band, and Big Boy Bloater, it would be expected that she would be special, but even with that at the forefront of the mind the reality far surpasses expectations.
Melisa doesn’t approach a song and try and bend it to her will, instead she is the song, a conduit for a torrent of raw emotion to spill out.
This is music as it should exist, with no artifice, and no barriers.
Melisa is joined by Smokin’ Crow Jenny Douglas for this performance.
Support comes from Richard O’Donnell. Best known as a member of Mud In Your Ear, a blues trio specialising in pre-war and early post-war blues music, Richard makes a rare solo performance, playing raw, authentic blues on acoustic and amplified guitars.
