Day 413: Firewood and Candles, Paul Kelly
In 2018 I took my daughter Grace to see Paul Kelly in a pub in the Northern quarter of Manchester. If we were to see him in Australia, we would be in a many thousand seat venue however because he is not really known in the UK we had the privilege of seeing him a venue which held at most about 150 people. It was absolutely great. At the time his latest album “Life is Fine” had only recently been released and this was the third song on the album which he played as his third song in the concert since he literally played every song on the new album; something he could do because every song on the album is top quality and so makes great concert material.
