Annie Winter with band @ Chaplins, 15 MayAnnie Winter is playing Chaplins tonight, accompanied by Andy (percussion) and Zak (guitar, associate in from White Collar Boxing). As I’m my usual late getting out its near her set end; Annie invites Jemma to join them for an encore rendition of Monkey Man. Again Annie’s voice is striking, blended with the others in this impromptu band (she’s normally with Andy on full kit in her band) makes for a great sound, Jemma takes a strong lead and tries to get lively things going in the audience, with some small success.

Krista Green @ Chaplins, 15 MayKrista Green starts with a fave of mine from her recent material, Cherry Pie. Going by the rapturous applause as she ends its not only my favourite. Krista then starts with opener Move Along In My Own Time from her current album Moments With The Universe. Between these two songs alone there is quite a of contrast in vocal and playing styles, chirpy dropped vowels style with percussive guitar, to smoothed out long words and slow stroked chords to suit. Newer song More To Life Than This is more guitar based, however the vocals as ever with Krista are clear and well pronounced, no hesitation picking out the witticisms here. After a similarly glorious set, she finishes with her delightful oldie now entitled What A Shame What A Shame. Great.
