Dan O’Connell Hotel : Lauren Lee Williams : Saturday 18th September 2010.

Lyndon Walker is rumoured to write of himself in the third person. And also to break rules of grammar. And went to the Dan O'Connell Hotel yesterday to back up his old friend Lauren Williams (or Lauren Lee Williams as she now might have to be to differentiate herself in the world of fame, writing and music) by playing a little blues harp (soft country backing style – unusual for a large ego attached to a small harp in the key of A) Bushfire Blues. Lauren's whole set was music and the first half was entirely poems set to music; the most moving of which I found to be Kerry Scuffins sad and reflective simple piece in memory of the too early death of her daughter. Tissues and a heart were required.

Lyndon repeated his Santucci's performance of the Sonny Terry, Brownie McGhee classic Bring It On Home To Me with a great deal of audience participation – a surprising amount of blues fans with knowledge and a voice out there Melbourne. Thank you.
