Friday stuns ‘Other Voices’ audience
Gavin Friday, accompanied by Maurice Seezer, Des Moore and Gareth Hughes played to a captivated audience for RTE’s ‘Other Voices’ in St James Church, Dingle, Co. Kerry, Ireland on Wednesday.
Starting the set with a stripped down version of ‘Shag Tobacco’ and the torch song turns vaudeville classic ‘Melancholy Baby’, Gavin belted out superb versions of Caruso, complete with a mock-Italian ‘Come Back to Sorrento’ ending. After the recorded set, the stunned audience were treated to an off-camera encore of Jacques Brel’s ‘Next’.
This performance and the other bands recorded for this series of ‘Other Voices’, presented by John Kelly, will be broadcast on RTE TV starting in Spring 2005.
Full set list: Shag Tobacco, Melancholy Baby, The Last Song I’ll Ever Sing, Each Man Kills the Thing He Loves, Angel, Caruso, Rags to Riches, Next.
