For me, it was one of the best Shrewsbury FFs I've been to since it started.

Nic Jones was superb with his son's accompaniment using his father's guitar style, & their other accompanist Belinda O'Hooley on piano and accordion who sounded very much like Jo Brand & delivered similar dry comic lines [but without any crudity!]

I'd gone along early so as to get a seat as I'd anticipated that the concert would be bursting at the seams & I was most surprised that this wasn't the case & there were many empty spaces.

However, I got see the preceding act which was Lady Maisery & they were excellent both in their unusual harmonies & in their musicianship.
