from a recent cruise, would have loved to been there...
Oh my. what a pleasure that would be to see.
Oh, my! To me, that's a dream pairing. Talk about twin sons from different mothers!
They sound great together. Hope they decide to do a record; that would be very cool.
These guys are reduced to playing cruises to pay the bills?? Sad state of the music biz.
They all do cruises now....some of the biggest names in the music biz do these cruises....you know you can go on a Blake Shelton cruise, a ZZ Top cruise, an R. Kelly cruise....pick your genre and some big name is doing a music cruise. Cayamo is kind of a folkie/middle aged singer songwriter one -- John Hiatt, Lucinda Williams, Lyle Lovett, John Prine, Thompson....It's like going on tour or playing Vegas or Atlantic City, just part of the common way of making a living in the music biz.
Hmm...bizarre, but very interesting. Just glad people still want to hear this music. RT is brilliant.
The Cayamo cruise is an absolutely amazing lineup - Lyle Lovett, Emmylou, Buddy Miller, Richard Thompson, Steve Earle, Patty Griffin, Shawn Colvin, Joe Ely, John Hiatt, the list goes on...
All A-list talent, at the top of their game. It's like your own personal Hardly Strictly festival.
I'd love to go on one of these.
I love Richard Thompson, but I'd rather have my teeth pulled than go on a cruise aboard one of those freakin' apartment building on a keel....but to each his own. My little sister loves going on cruises....
Awesome (although I likewise have no interest whatsoever in taking a cruise).
Perhaps prioritize the clip/music over the cruise/venue?
That's how I imagine heaven.
The clip's cool, I love both those cats...but I have gotten a little jaded about Thompson acoustic performances -- I've seen him do so many solo acoustic shows, I'm a little, not bored with 'em exactly, but not excited by 'em either. I really cherish the increasingly rare shows where he takes a band on the road. I hear he's working on an album he describes as a folk-rock power trio album that takes its inspiration from that he calls the two great trio models -- The Jimi Hendrix Experience and Peter, Paul & Mary -- now that I'm looking forward to!
While I know what you mean - I like to see him play electric with his band, too - but, I saw him, recently, playing solo acoustic, and he was as good as I've EVER seen/heard him.
