After seeing Kelly at Rough Trade on Sunday evening, I knew I had to try and organise an interview with her. I knew she was back in the area on Tuesday, so after conversations with her manager Helen, I was lucky enough to be able to head down to The Musician in Leicester to take in the show, record some live session tracks and interview Kelly. First off, if you're from Leicester (or nearby!) and you've never been to The Musician, what are you waiting for? It's a great venue, decorated brilliantly, the staff are friendly and helpful and the sound is excellent. I would thoroughly recommend heading down to check out some of the great acts that they put on!
It was an interesting first experience for me of filming for a full video episode of The Proc-Cast, there's a lot of footage to go through and edit and it seems a bit of a daunting (but exciting) task. This video, of a song from her second set of the evening, is called 'The Witch of Walkern'. In it Kelly sings beautifully about the last ever official witch trial in the UK witch took place in the town of Walkern, which is very close to Stevenage in Hertfordshire where Kelly comes from.
Keep an eye out for more content and the full video episode featuring Kelly Oliver coming soon!
