Tomorrow evening, we are going to see Ray Lamontagne playing at the Bridgewater Hall in Manchester and I am SO excited! I have seen him twice before and he is amazing. Each performance is full of raw energy and his songs connect so strongly with me. Last time he even made me cry!
Ray isn't big on "chatting" to the audience and is quite reserved. Last time I saw him, he remained almost deadpan when a male member of the audience bellowed "We love you Ray" and "Marry me Ray" in a strong Mancunian accent!
He doesn't like to tell the history of a song as he believes that the song should retain mystery and be meaningful to the each person who listens to it. Along with his band, he seems to give every performance his all!
I'm also looking forward to seeing the support acts as there has been some great talent amongst them, in particular Priscilla Ahn who has the voice of an angel.
