Lipbone Redding – WOW – played an incredible show at Foundry Hall last night. Really engaging performer, and I use that term performer completely. He tells stories that set the scene for each song, and the songs from this singer/songwriter are so real it is obvious that he’s lived them, felt the content of them himself, in his soul. He’s most noted for his ability to imitate accurately brass instruments, and he does that with amazing style, but what I loved was the content of the songs. He took us to Chili in this song about the dogs of Santiago. I felt as if I went there with him, seeing the place from his mind’s eye, feeling it through his music.
