Concert review – Ken Stringfellow (REM, Posies, Minus 5) live at Bi Nuu

Usually writing a review of a gig is pretty easy. Most bands are reasonably straightforward to describe and concerts too. I’ve just got back from an evening with Ken Stringfellow and I’m completely confused as to what to write.

Ken Stringfellow is hugely, stunningly talented. He’s very weird. He’s extremely funny. He’s one of the most naked performers I’ve met. He’s a very warm and loving human being. He seems nervous but he stands two feet from a member of the audience and sings the most open and aching song you can imagine looking straight into their face, without blinking. While turned away from the audience and tuning his guitar he mutters as if to himself about being an emotionally fragile person who’s going through a nervous breakdown – and has been, he says, for some time now. And then says, It’s great – you should try it. And giggles.
But what songs. What an amazing voice.
