Last night the Mavericks in Manchester, tonight the Mavericks in one of my favourite cities, Birmingham! They are playing in he Symphony Hall where I saw Raul Malo, their lead singer when he was on tour with the Transatlantic sessions, a year or so ago. That had been a fabulous night, with the best folk musicians from both sides of the Atlantic, now the best band in the world are playing there tonight.
The Mavericks have got back together after an intermission of quite a few years, and are better than ever. If you don’t know their music then give yourself a treat and discover it! Not just their famous chart-toppers, ‘Dance the Night Away’ and ‘Oh What a Crying Shame’, but so much more music, I’m not exaggerating in saying they’ve recorded hundreds of wonderful songs. Their latest album, ‘In Time’ is their best yet, and if you haven’t a copy, then rush out and get one!
