Spiers and Boden – Bath Folk Club

Nepotism played a part tonight, the support act was Jon Boden’s younger but taller brother Tom. He played a few solo songs, then Jon joined him on stage for a couple more before he finished off with a couple more solos.

About 9pm the main act saunter up onto stage for the first half of their set, they were as good as I’ve ever seen them. A few songs seemed to have a slightly different arrangement, although that could be the beer and my memory playing tricks on me.
