I was introduced to John Craigie, known to some as a modern day troubadour, by last episode's guests Rainbow Girls. The group of friends from California has produced both of these excellent acts, as well as Marty O'Reilly and The Old Soul Orchestra. A truly talented bunch!
Talking to Craigie you can get a picture of this calm guy with a great observational sense of humour. It comes across in his live shows both in the music and the audience interaction. Although you can't let that detract from some of the wonderfully emotive sentiments present within his songs. If you have a chance to go to a show, it's a chance not to be missed. I was lucky enough to see his first ever UK show on his first tour over this side of the pond. I hope he comes back again soon because I want to see it again!
