Last weekend I went to see Nicole Atkins open for The Jayhawks. If you are a regular reader of my blog then you will know I am a big Nicole fan, love her! At the end of her performance she made a little speech about how much the main act, The Jayhawks, meant to her and how they had inspired her to learn to play guitar so obviously I had to stick around to see them. I had never heard of the band before, that might sound blasphemous to those of you who are massive fans but it's true . . . that being said after watching their entire show I am now a massive fan myself! They started out in the mid 80s and somehow managed to escape my radar until now so thank you Nicole for introducing me to a truly awesome band!
The Williamsburg Park stage still has a few shows left before Fall well and truly kicks in so if you haven't seen a show there yet you really must, it's free and such a fantastic setting!
