Annie Keating Band

Sunday 10th September 2023

Review & photos by Keith Belcher

Sunday 10th September 2023. After a 7 week break the new Live Room season kicked off with the return visit of The Annie Keating Band. The band tonight being Annie Keating, guitar and lead vocals, Joe Coombs, guitars, Jamie Dawson, drums and Mark Lewis , upright and electric bass.

Almost a year since the debut visit on 25th September 2022. They rocked the summer off in style to a very appreciative audience who had (hopefully ) dodged the late afternoon’s torrential rainfall. The entire show was pro filmed, hopefully clips will be available soon. Catch the tour if you can.

Hamilton Loomis

Sunday 23rd July 2023

Review and photos by Ron Pengelly

Saltaire visit on Sunday evening from Texan electric bluesman Hamilton Loomis and his band at the conclusion of their UK tour.

All kinds of blues plus a healthy dollop of funk and rock blew the roof off and made for a rather special show full of energy. The audience loved every minute, and huge appreciation from him both for the audience and the venue.

Hurry back Hamilton!

Gordie MacKeeman & His Rhythm Boys

Wednesday 12th July 2023

Review and photos by Ron Pengelly

Really enjoyed my stint at The Live Room at Saltaire in Saltaire in recent weeks covering for their regular photographer Keith Belcher. It’s been a privilege to have a ringside seat for so many top notch folk and roots acts from all over the world.

Many acts, like Canadian Gordie MacKeeman and His Rhythm Boys on Wednesday evening, are difficult to categorize in terms of genre, but the common threads are consummate musicianship and great entertainers. And boy were we entertained last night, as the standing ovation at the end showed. Unbelievable, still buzzing, and now we know why he’s called ‘Crazy Legs’!

Raghu Dixit Project

Friday 7th July 2023

Review and photos by Ron Pengelly

A blast of Indian folk rock at The Live Room at Saltaire on Friday night from Bangalore based The Raghu Dixit Project. Great, energetic songs, with some Iron Maiden woven in, and a competitive singalong, where half the audience didn’t have a clue what they were singing. And a selfie with the audience to round off the evening.

Great evening guys, thanks for coming to Yorkshire!

The Hoth Brothers

Sunday 25th June 2023

Review and photos by Ron Pengelly

A taste of the wilderness of New Mexico came to Saltaire on Friday with the Hoth Brothers. My photos of a hugely entertaining set of toe tapping Appalachian inspired songs from Bard Edrington and Sarah Ferrell, with Karina Wilson on fiddle and vocals standing in for Boris McCutcheon who couldn’t make the tour.

Great show, thanks folks.
