LEEDS WOMEN'S AID CHARITY GIG REVIEW
Devon born Amelia Orgill followed Pippa and gave the audience a selection of covers and her own material, including some interesting Cornish folklore. The enjoyable and catchy set provided evidence of a singer who will have a great stage presence in the forthcoming years.
There has been a “Whisper” for some time now regarding the songstress Hannah Trigwell, well this has now been replaced by an almighty roar as this gifted 19 year-old ticks all the boxes for a bright future. Admitting that she was nervous playing solo for the first time in a long while, Hannah showed a professionalism beyond her years and experience. With an EP now available and over 600,000 views of her YouTube videos, Hannah is definitely one to “Follow”.
David Henshaw and friends then took the stage. and the five-piece band produced a compelling set. The impressive range of instruments used, gave each song a rounded feel, which accompanied David’s unique voice to its fullest and had the crowd shouting for more.
Headlining the evening was the Oui Bee & The Jazzbags, and again this took the gig and the audience to yet another musical level. Sat with your eyes closed, you could well have been listening along the Champs-Elysées as the feel of the full and rich bodied sound produced, was evocative of the bands favourite tipple between songs.
Special thanks has to go to Richard Steel for all his charitable efforts and the performers who took part in a memorable fund-raising night.
