Last night I had the opportunity to see the ever amazing Ben Folds live in concert for the first time and I can say it’s a concert I won’t soon forget. Ben played an incredibly good mix of both his old stuff and songs from his latest album “Lonely Avenue” to a very enthusiastic audience in Vicar Street.
The supporting act, Kate Miller-Heidke and her husband Kier, though are what I’d like to talk about. They’re an Australian 2-piece that are touring with Ben for his European tour and last night was their first time playing in Ireland. The music was fantastic with Kate singing and occasionally taking to the keyboard with Kier on the guitar singing backing vocals. Kate has an amazing voice (she’s won awards in Aus for classical singing) and the variety in the music was really really enjoyable, so much so that I rushed to pick up her “Curioser” as soon as the show ended. It’s been playing on repeat ever since and it keeps getting better and better every time.
I’d embed that video only youtube won’t let me. Give it a look. It’s very good
