7:55 Thursday evening at Sydney’s Enmore Theatre for the Eric Bibb concert due to start 8:00, and the house is barely half full. An hour and a half later after the support act and an intermission the house is packed, the average age of the audience is maybe 20 years younger, and the show is about to start. Evidently the local kids know how things work at the Enmore Theatre.
It was worth waiting for; Eric Bibb supported by my favourite bass man Danny Thompson and Larry Crocket on drums.
Right now I’m listening to Andrew Ford of the ABC Music Show talk to Eric about connections, so this link seems appropriate:
After today (4th April) you can download the ABC interview for the next few weeks from The Music Show
Another YouTube clip, this time with Danny Thompson and Larry Crocket, plus the Melbourne Mass Gospel Choir
And Eric Bibb with Danny Thompson at the Maryport Blues Festival in 2007
