Baka Beyond @ The Junction

On Thursday 7 May, Baka Beyond were playing at The Junction in Cambridge. I liked this strange Afro-Gaelic fusion. The special guest vocalist Molara was great — in fact, I preferred her singing and dancing to that of ‘resident’ Su Hart, while the fiddle player, Paddy Le Mercier, was simply stunning. (I am talking about both his playing and appearance. I mean, if I ever learn to play the fiddle, I just have to get a jacket like his.) I think the sound engineer(s) did not realise what a small venue Junction 2 is: the music was a notch or two too loud for it.
