LWM is 10 featuring Gozer Goodspeed & the Neon Gamblers + Maisy Grace + Jamie Yost + Lily Ward @ The Inn on the Shore, Downderry
Show Date: 24th September 2022
After a decade of writing about new music on this blog, it seemed fitting to mark the milestone with something of a shindig so I arranged with my local pub to put on said shindig with four incredible artists that I've had the pleasure of discovering through LWM. Cakes were made, the lights were dimmed and even the beautiful sunset I ordered arrived bang on queue so the stage was set for a perfect evening.
Opening proceedings was the demure talent of Cornish singer-songwriter Lily Ward. However, the sound coming from one vocalist and her laptop was something you'd expect to hear pumping out of a club or a stadium rather than a village pub on a Saturday evening. There were hints of Taylor Swift, La Rue and Ellie Goulding to the superbly produced melodies and radio-ready vocals. Ward even survived a four-legged stage invasion and the high notes which, despite writing herself, were still a bitch to reach (her words not mine).
back from the skate park to pick up his guitar and play. What followed was a beautifully chilled set of picked guitar notes and soulful vocals that seemed to flow so easily that you could believe we were guests in his lounge while he practiced his art. As the sun set over the Cornish coastline, the mellow melodies eased the crowd in to a sublime Saturday evening vibe.
Next up was Wadebridge's Maisy Grace who was flying solo thanks to being let down at the last
In between the music, we ate cupcakes, drank cider and generally had a great time which is all I've ever wanted to be honest so I couldn't have asked for more. Maybe we'll do it all again in ten years but, then again, why wait that long....?
