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’!
