The Endless Note

James Grant

Tonight I am off to see James Grant who is appearing at my good old local “The Fox and Hounds” in Houston, hopefully, babysitter permitting with Mr & Mrs Big Rab.

I have already posted on the career of James Grant (click HERE) as well as a specific post on his great album “Strange Flowers” (click HERE) but this will be my first experience of seeing him live.

“You’re Not The Only One” (Live) – James Grant

James is playing tomorrow night with the legendary Fraser Speirs who last year spent a fair amount of time on the road as a member of Paolo Nutini’s touring band.

Fraser has been a session player and live musician for so many artists but you can buy a CD of him live with some friends titled “About Time”

  2. Great night and thanks for the invite. James is a great guitarist and vocalist. The songs were very powerful and Fraser Spiers’s understated accompaniment was perfect.

    • It really was subline, great curry, great company and the kind of performance which reinforce belief in real music amongst the “X Factor” factory.

      Nothing beats a great voice set amonst a soundscape that enhances rather than shrouds it’s soul and James Grant delivered both as singer and guitarist with Fraser adding that added accent perfectly.

      Great night!
