So here it is ; my review of Charlotte Cornfield’s show!
Last Friday, I went to the Company House with high expectations… and they have been satisfied. Willie Stratton was the first band to play that night. Banjo, drums, a strong and amazing voice, this band has a lot of potential. However, I have to say that, in my opinion, the sound was way too loud for a little venue like The Company House. I wish to see them again, in an outdoor festival or something – somewhere where they would be able to exploit their full potential. As soon as they finished playing, I started being very excited to hear Charlotte. She was so great! She started with the song “Big volcano, small town” and she did a cover (or 2, my memory can’t get any worse) of Sam Cooke’s songs. She is talented, funny & smart, and I am glad I discovered her and her music! She also explained that Halifax is special for her since her parents met while working there, for the CBC.
Highlight of the night : when she said “Get your poop in a group”.
If you have a chance to get her new album Two Horses, don’t hesitate, you won’t be disappointed.
