Roddy Woomble | The Impossible Song & Other Songs
Had a fantastic night out last night, I went to 'The Cluny' under Byker Bridge in Newcastle to see Roddy Woomble (Idlewild's lead singer) live and acoustic. We were lucky to get there early enough to get front row seats. We were sooo close, virtually on the stage!! Roddy's lovely voice (he can tell me bedtime stories any day) did him proud. Anongst the array of gloriously gentle Scottish themed acoustic folk from his various solo and collaborative albums, was an unexpected acoustic version of an Idlewild classic "The World in your Arms" One of my all time favourite songs (...no I was really good, not even a tear).
The atmosphere was fantastic, really friendly and intimate, the real ale was cool and delicious and the evening was so warm we even sat outside for a bit. The support 'Cow an Cane' from Teeside were fantastic as well. All in all a really good night out. He is continuing his tour up in Scotland in April & May, go and see him if you can, you will not regret it :o)
