|Jazzyjack||Review: Stephen Fearing (21)||RE: Review: Stephen Fearing||28 Nov 02|
Good. I got some response from a few of you cats. My post was actually not a review but here is the review; Stephen's gig demonstrated his substantial guitar virtuosity. He seems able to keep up a strum rhythm interjecting bass runs and treble finger picking licks. He often digresses into elaborate solos sometimes using jazz chords. His singing is emotional and has that Irish lilt .His songs are incredibly varied. He does a driving tune like " Anything You Want " and is equally entertaining with a ballad like "A Town Called Jesus ". He brings tears to your eyes ( at least if you're Canadian ) with " The Longest Road I've Known " His amusing stories and manner make him seem like a buddy is telling you about his travels. He did 2 encores and a short guitar solo. His show blew me away. JUST GO SEE HIM IF YOU'RE ANY KIND OF FOLK FAN.
