The Spiegeltent is a wonderful venue but I couldn’t help feeling this gig would have been more suited to the outdoors where one could lay on the grass and soak up the tunes whilst drifting away.
The songs were pleasant and Lydia has a gentle voice that suits the style of folk but she also has a distracting habit of waving her arm around like she is conducting a choir.
Interestingly, my plus-one didn’t notice this at all.
I enjoyed the backstories to the songs and there was a relaxed mood both on stage and off. 3/5 stars.
