Hi Gerry
Sorry you couldn't make it to the meet-up. I agree that Anjani suits a small intimate venue, but it was still enjoyable to hear her at the Midlands Festival. By her own account the Festival was not an experience she'd like to repeat, so it's unlikely we'll see her there again. It's lovely the way she makes time to talk to the people after the shows. I'm glad you got to meet her. Maybe we'll get to meet you next time there a reason for a gathering.

While I too perfer Anjani in small venues-- Montreal and New York -- I also recall tnat she did quite well with the huge crowd at the Point theater in Dublin. Only a couple of songs, but she had the attendees eating out of her hand!

But Damellon, Anjani wasn't really outdoors but played in that closed marquee, home to the second stage, which had a surprisingly intimate ambience, being a dark, warm, shelter from the rain.(But maybe I am the only person who has a thing about being in tents.)

Welcome to the forum, Gerry!

I know this is retreading old ground Dick but, of all the acts in Came So Far For Beauty in the Point, I think Anjani was probably the least successful overall and chose a song that simply did not fit with the thrust of the show.

Thanks for the welcome, Diane,glad you enjoyed Anjani at Mullingar Festival.It was a good idea for her to play in the marquee and i think it would have helped her sound also. Was it very wet during the whole day?
Red Poppy, I have to disagree with you about Anjani's performance at Came So Far For Beauty.I think she was superb and was up there with Perla and Julie's performance.Magnificent!

Hi Gerry ~

Yes, it really is hot here; however, still not as hot as in Europe. Thankfully. The air and water are heating up for the height of hurricane season, this month and the next two. So far, so good, though.

Yes, I've been to the Chelsea, the same year as the New York Event. I loved it, though. So impregnated with the vibes of history. Stanley Bard was also very gracious and accommodating to Margeret and me. I love all the artwork ~ everywhere ~ walls, ceilings, stairwells... wherever they could fit it, so it seems. I don't care for the idea of the renovation plans, unless they're particularly conscientious about preservation. Time will tell on that, though. If it goes the other way, it'll be too late and a great landmark will have lost its character and integrity. Its history was abyssmal at times, but still people have bonded and remained so with this great hotel and all it represents.

Hi Gerry,

It rained much of the day, but the sun came out in time to give us a beautiful sunset behind the main stage. But I like rain. Welsh rain is better than English rain, and Irish rain is better than Welsh rain. It is softer and lighter and more translucent. No, it really is. Don't mind Red Poppy, in reality he's a funny, charming Irishman, but he tends to get a bit uppity on here 8) . Mind you, I am not a fan of Anjani's style of music, but I found her quite agreeable in Mullingar, and as she is singing the words of The Man, I can just let it go by. Pity we missed you in Dublin, see you again some time, I'm sure.

Hey Diane
It must be really cool to walk in the soft Welsh rain and cooler still to walk in the Irish mist.
My grandmother was Irish and she talked all the time about Ireland's weather being "soft". Not sure what that meant? You might know?
My mum (she was my mum's mum) just won't talk about her at all, like she's cut off her Irish roots and wants to forget where she came from. But, hey, that's people.

And Lizzy, you're right.I was in Bulgaria last week for a few days and it was sooooooo hot, even the natives were finding it tough going in their houses. Luckily the boat was air conditioned.

Hi Diane
Just loved your description of the irish rain 'translucent'? Wish it was like that all the time.
Pity i missed you all in Dublin, I'm sure you had a great time but ,as you say,maybe another time,hopefully when The Man decides its time to hit the road again.
I really love Anjani's style of music though.Late nite,small intimate jazz bar,drinks flowing.What could be better? Leonard there as well no doubt. What do you think?

Cue LC quote: "I don't consider myself a pessimist at all. I think of a pessimist as someone who is waiting for it to rain. And I feel completely soaked to the skin."

I'll consult my diary and get back to you, Gerry. That's the best offer I've had all week.
