|Leo Appleyard - Guitar|
Before a sold out Soho crowd the angelic guitarist wound up the spring of his quintet's (+ Special guest Neil Yates) ample talents. In turn they played tighter and tighter until finally they were let loose as the concert struck it's concluding chimes. The opener, "The Homeless Wizard" found the musicians a little errant and they felt their way into the dark ambience of the venue and the grandeur of the festival.
|Neil Yates - Trumpet and Flugelhorn|
|Duncan Eagles - |
|Max Luthert - Bass|
|Eric Ford - Drums|
This was a gig that took some time to reach its full stride but I think we can safely assume that today's small steps will lead to a giant leap for Leo Appleyard in the future.
