Got to be quick - got visitors - but must tell you how fantastic it was to see and hear Boo Hewerdine at Out of the Woods in Dundee again last night. Boo most often writes songs for others to perform (Eddi Reader, Heidi Talbot, Kris Drever and lots and lots of others) but he is also a fantastic live performer of his own material. I tried to find a decent YouTube clip to show you what I'm raving about but most of them are for one of his better-known songs ('The Patience of Angels') and that's not one of my favourites so I didn't fancy putting that up. None of our community favourites are on his MySpace just now either so the best I could find was this amazon page that lets you hear some samples from one of his many great albums. Go to 'Slow Learner' on this one...we requested it last night and he played it as his encore. My pal Verona is a HUGE fan and that's her favourite song so she was as far over the moon as a person can be on the edges of Dundee on a Saturday night. If you get a chance to go and see Boo anytime, any place, anywhere...off you go and don't spare the horses.
