VARIOUS VENUES, TONIGHT AND TOMORROW
As promoter and festival director Kevin Morris makes clear in his introduction in this short event’s brochure, the memory of Billy Kelly, once general manager of Mayfest and then creator of a whole series of roots music seasons in the city, is still very much alive in this programme. That’s perhaps nowhere more true than at Hazey Recollections, tomorrow afternoon at Stereo. From 2pm to 5.30pm there will be sets by local explorers of the terrain The Doghouse Roses, The Dirt, Andrea Glass, Porch Song Anthology and Colin Train. That event winds up in plenty of time to grab a bite before Sheila E’s uncle Alejandro Escovedo (pictured) plays his set at The Arches, in his 60th birthday year. Catch Glass’s support set there too. Alternatively, Sarah MacDougall provides another way to close the season for westenders at Bar Brel.
