Tom Russell played The Green Room in Montreal on Thursday night (backed, as usual, by Andrew Hardin).
It was fan-freaking-tastic!
I am now a confirmed Russellhead.
I took a number of videos of the event and am waiting to see if I can get permission to upload them to Google Video. Once I do, I'll link to them.
Tom Russell, you could be forgiven for thinking from his CDs, comes acrosss in recordings as sort of taciturn, serious, and rather cool. He is far from that. On stage, he is funny, engaging, and interacts with the audience. He is a master-storyteller both in spoken word and in song.
It is SO worth going to see him in person.
