From: GUEST,pf
Date: 10 Mar 11 - 10:29 AM

Tried to add this as a topic earlier, so apologies if it ends up appearing twice (it's my first time!).

Anyway, I thought a few folk on here might like to hear about this:
http://www.southbankcentre.co.uk/find/music/gigs-contemporary/tickets/in-search-of-nic-jones-58205

As someone who wasn't even born when he had to give up performing, I really can't wait to attend this show!


Info:

28/05/2011 Queen Elizabeth Hall, London

With special guests Martin Carthy, Ashley Hutchings, Jim Moray, Pete Coe, Jackie Oates, Jim Causley, Chris Coe, Damien Barber, Tony Hall, Belinda O'Hooley, Anais Mitchell and Blair Dunlop.

The current English folk revival owes a lot to Nic Jones. Despite a career-ending car accident nearly 30 years ago, his early recordings have inspired and influenced countless current stars of the folk scene. In this very special concert, produced in association with Sidmouth FolkWeek, some of his biggest fans pay tribute to Nic by sharing their favourites from his repertoire. The highlight of the concert is Nic himself returning to the stage for a reunion of one of his old bands, The Bandoggs.

Thanks for the heads up on this one. I missed the Sidmouth one, as a friend was in the throes of having a stroke at the time, and had wanted to book for the QEH, but didn't realise that tickets had gone up on sale. I got straight on to the website and managed to book some tickets for the night about 5 hours ago - it was already looking pretty full in the central front stalls then!

A little reminder: there are still some tickets still left for In Search of Nic Jones. It takes place this Saturday.

Nic will be performing several songs himself- in fact he's a lot more involved, performanc-wise, than he was in the Sidmouth show. Artists have been scurrying the length and breadth of the country in recent months to rehearse and to put together some really special songs.

It's worth knowing that Julia Jones, when the idea of future dates was tabled, said that they don't really want to do any more...so the SouthBank show is definitely one not to miss.

As Ruth says, the Tony Rose replacement this time will be Mssrs Adams and Barber. Last years Sidmouth deps were Jon Loomes and Paul Sartin. It's an interesting idea that the great Tony Rose has to be replaced by two people. One, wouldn't be adequate obviously!

Tony is, of course, irreplaceable. Damien will be emulating Tony's concertina, I'll be trying to emulate Nic's fiddle (ie. attempting the impossible) and we'll both be filling in Tony's harmonies at times. We expect Nic will be singing his own part!!!!!

During the Bandoggs days when I was their sound engineer, I used to sit with Nic in sessions trying to copy his fiddle style. I left each session thinking I'd cracked it and indeed I had, until the next time I tried to play without Nic being there. Frustrating - but indicative of the genius fiddler he was.

I never heard Nic singing during his heyday, and I never thought I would hear him sing live at all. The last half an hour with Nic, son Joe, and Belinda O'Hooley on piano was the highspot for me ... followed by Jackie Oates "Annachie Gordon" and Jim Moray's version of " Billy Don't you Weep for Me" (surprised me that did, as it was always my favourite number ... but his arrangement certainly worked!)

SS Speaketh the truth....!
I doubt if I will see a more emotional gig this year. Bandoggs (This timewith Damien Barber and Johnny Adams taking on the late Tony Roses duties) Martin Carthy at his imperious best, with a truly brilliant Sir Patrick Spens. (has he moved into the South Bank...that's 2 weeks in a row!), So many greats, but, the big surprise was Nic himself. His voice has come on leaps and bounds, Much quieter than it used to be, but just as achingly expressive as ever. I've been lucky over the years to have been involved with various NJ projects, but, there was an almost surreal feeling when Joe (Nics son) joined in to accompany his dad. Shut your eyes and it could have Nic. and the Duetting they did was almost instinctive. Belinda and Jackie Oates, again pulled out all the stops. (Why does Annachie Gordon do that to me?) And, Belinda accompanying Nic on "Thanksgiving" ......Magic.
Sorry If I haven't named everyone, but, there wasn't a bad performance all night. Absolutely splendid, Well done to Ruth Archer and the South Bank people for putting it on. Nic says that it won't happen again, .......I wouldn't bet on that!

Could've listened to Nic & his son Joe all night. Nic was in fine voice & when he sang in harmony with Joe...well, that was SO special, a real 'hairs on the back of the neck' moment. Must mention Belinda on piano...the decision to include her in Nic & Joe's final set was only made fifteen minutes before the concert began. She is the consummate accompanist, sensitive, totally aware of the musical needs of the piece & the ability to be 'in the moment' without being intrusive. A good evening of music-making, but Nic & Joe (plus Belinda) is a musical memory that I will carry with me for a long, long time.

Ralphie ain't wrong to say it was an emotional event ...I was just mulling it over,and apart from remembering Nic standing alone in the spotlight with the music stand and mic in front of him singing 10,000 miles with impeccable phrasing, the sight of him beaming at both his son and the sound of his playing, and moving to the rhythm of it during an instrumental break in one of the other numbers comes back to me. At the time I was sitting there with a big cheesy grin on my face and a very warm feeling of shared enjoyment. What nobody has mentioned is the fact that there were TWO standing ovations. The audience was still standing and applauding after the mass group encores when the houselights went up.

(On a side matter,I just hope that the antisocial person in the two rows in front of us who kept disturbing my concentration by using a camera with brightly lit screen and flashing video light, and taking pics and video recordings during the evening,particularly during the Nic solos, has the good grace to put them up on Youtube so that the rest of us can enjoy them.)

I assume that you had written permission for wanton bootlegging from all the artists concerned? No? Thought not.

Sadly, funds weren't available to do a proper filming/audio record of the gig. The fees that the South Bank Centre charge were too much, (even though Damien Barber had all the kit ready to go) There might be some decent pics up in due course, but, unless something else comes to light, this might be the only tantalising video evidence available.
Although Nics family have said that "Thats it, No more" Talking to Nic and Joe after the gig, ......who knows?! Joe really enjoyed it, and, no, they won't be going on tour, but, maybe some new recording project in the future? Nics voice is far stronger nowadays than it has been in the past. Joes sensitive playing, and harmonising was so intuitive, that if the impetus was there, who knows....They even did a Radiohead song!

I'd just like to respond to Ralph's last point. The facility fee that the SouthBank has to charge for video recording wasn't "too much", it was a standard (and not particularly large) fee, but because the possibility of recording came up rather late in the day, all of the budget was already allocated. In fact the SouthBank were very generous and their staff could not have been more kind or accommodating. It was a delight to work with them, and Sidmouth FolkWeek was honoured to be asked to produce the concert.

Fair point Joan.
It just seems such a missed opportunity. I could have done the sound recording out of a little flight case. (As I did at Sidmouth last year) Damian Barber was up for some locked off video cams. I'm sure the SBC were very accomodating. But, I'd have done it for free! Stereo out from the FOH desk, 2 audience mics... As I did last year. Done deal. I just hope we get the chance to do it again. Just seeing Tim Chippings 1000 Miles video today, brings a lump to my throat. But, it could have been so much better. (You know this to be true, as you have the Sidmouth version)

I see from the wiki entry on Nic that his first son Daniel, whom I knew as a small boy about 1978-9, a couple of years before Nic's accident, died at some stage. Does anyone know when, or how, that occurred? And what has become of daughter Helen, whom I remember as a delightful little girl?

Hi Ralphie - I think you'll find that that video of the finale is only traceable if you're on Facebook and either a friend of the original poster of if, or one of the people in it who have been tagged. It's not one that has been posted up on Youtube (as yet)

And what about Blair Dunlop's magnificent rendering of Canadeeio! To play the guitar part is not all easy, to sing at the same time is mind boggling and to do that aged 19 in front of a capacity crowd at the Queen Elizabeth Hall is one hell of a nerve racking achievement. Is there a picture of Nic's gleeming smile when Blair played the intro - possibly too dark though.

Hi there,

Just wondered if anyone does have photos or video footage then please, please, please would there be any chance you could forward it to me? I, for fear of distracting anyone (!!) didn't use my camera. Now with big regrets as I have nothing for the family album!! Thanks to everyone for taking part and loved every minute and thanks to Southbank and Joan for putting it on. Seeing my Dad sing for the first time since I was a little girl was more than emotional and stupidly I forgot the tissues!

Helen

Dearest Julia ~~ Thank you. Now I bethink me, it was Joe I remember. Forgive my confusion ~~ I am in my 80th year now, dammit! & indeed I was much impressed with his mohican on the clip.

Do you recall our mutual visits back in 70s-80s when you lived in Doddington & Valerie & I in Haddenham? I am still in that house, though now with my wife of one year Emma: Valerie died 4 years ago.

I have a recollection of carrying Helen around quite a distance at a Norwich Folk Fest when I was staying over with the Bellamys; so she must have been a very little girl then.

Greatly regret could not make the concert, but glad it appeared to have been so successful. I sent regards to you via Nigel Paterson though, with whom I have been corresponding on another thread about recollections of The Halliard ~~

~~ and of course repeat here my kindest regards & fondest recollections to you all...

Much love

~Michael~

Well, as there was no official recording sanctioned it might be a good idea to put your pics up on the Facebook Nic Jones appreciation society Group, for all to see. The family pop in there from time to time, and you've got some pretty good pics there.

@Michael.

Apparently I did that alot, and had to resist the urge to repeat such a comment on Saturday!!! I have very fond memories of the festivals and the people I met. If I'm honest at the time my master plan was to ingratiate myself with as many people as possible in order to illicit ice creams and hot dogs from them behind my parents backs. Sadly it does't work anymore!! Lots of love H xx

Mike - I presume that would be the Cambridge Festival 1975 as I think that was the only Cambridge that Nic did. It was supposed to reflect the folk club scene more prominantly that year and did quite a good job with Nic, Tony Rose, Vin Garbutt, Five Hand Reel and quite a few others.
I was the only Cambridge that I have ever attended.

Not seen Joe since a few of us came down from Newcastle to go rowing. Nice mohican!

It was lovely to see your videos, mine were from the left, yours were from the right and others were in the middle. I think there may be one or two folks who go to gigs just to be able to whinge here if they see people taking photos or videos, rather than just to enjoy the music.
