This sweet young Welsh fella, Freeman, is either going to be ‘the next Springsteen’ or have a lot of great stories to tell about the starmaker machinery behind the popular song.

Backstage before the show, Jim Lauderdale from Nashville played one of the songs he wrote, upon my request: ‘You Don’t Seem to Miss Me,’ a ripping-hearted country tune that I first heard on a Patty Loveless album in the 90s, as a duet with George Jones. I adore their version, but when Jim sings his own song, the phrasing is dark and tangled and utterly felt.

Here’s me backstage after soundcheck with the good lad David Spelman, producer of tonight’s event, and of the New York Guitar Festival, for which this is the opening night event. (David: I so know that you’re going to Google yourself and find this page. So, hi David!)
