Three of my favourite artists are once again touring together; namely Nelson Bragg, Anny Celsi and Duncan Maitland (as of now!). Tony Poole (Starry-Eyed and Laughing) will also be joining them for a few dates.Tickets are only about £10 each, so this is not to be missed! I intend to come to Oxford, Brighton, and the final London gig (now at the Betsy Trotwood, Clerkenwell - NOT Leytonstone as mentioned in video). Here are the details (updated):

Looks fun John.  Nelson - like others I've met in Brian's band - is a top-notch musician...and person.

That looks really interesting. I would've had no idea that Nelson was going on tour. All Brian's musicians are top of the line, so I'm not surprised Nelson can make it on his own (with the help of Anny and Duncan). Have a great time John!

Hi GGH Ginny (?)  I remember that I had trouble finding the Nelson's first CD Day Into Night over here in Sweden when it first was released. I was intrigued by the songs when I heard clips on the Internet back then [I received a copy in person from Nelson when I saw Brian in 2009, after complaining on this site how difficult it was to track down the CD].

I enjoy every track on the album! It’s so good with the arrangements and lyrics and so different from the stuff they categorize as popular and play on TV and radio nowadays. It is definitely one of my favorite albums of all times (!)

When I met Nelson this summer I asked him why he wasn't on Spotify (because I would like all my friends to hear his great music). He said that both of his album is up on Youtube... so there is a good place to start if you can't find the CD's (or the vinyl) right away. Also, check out http://nelsonbragg.com/steel-derrick-music

I wish I could could catch any of the UK show, because I know they will be GREAT!

together they are, indeed, a fine trio.
saw them in buxton (way up in the peak district) last night.
last night's audience were immediately caught by the quality of their performance.
all three excellent songwriters and performers.
playing together they're top notch, each adding to the mix.
they attract fab guests along the way,too
(richard snow hattersley, a name some of you'll know,
opened with a great trio he's playing with, fun on the pier
and joined the finale).
we'll be at the woodstock (oxford) date tomorrow
and ceertainly looking forward to more, plus the joy of hearing tony poole, too.
frustratingly, missing my own terrace cred. gig,
here at the greys in sunny brighton monday 28 aug
(we'll be somewhere near iceland
- hoping not to get caught in similar volcanic mayhem that affected nelson'n'anny's tour
back in 2010..).
i know tony poole is coming down, dunno who else might be along.
if you're anywhere near any of the celsi / bragg / maitland  venues / dates
whilst they're here on tour, don't miss 'em!

commercial over...

Paul, thanks for posting the pics. I love Nelson's music and have started listening to Anny's music as well. Am just familiar with her through the postings re this tour. Any chance of getting a video from tonight's gig? Although confused with the time difference and tonight may already be tomorrow??
Enjoy Iceland!

Good morning,

I'm also a fan of Nelson's solo works and happily discovering Anny's.

Here is a video from one of Anny/Nelson/Duncan's recent shows:

When you click on this one, other videos will pop up as well.

Enjoy!
Stephanie

woodstock (that's by oxford, maaan) tonight.
guest aboard is tony poole (starry eyed and laughing),
with that distinctive electric rickenbacker
alongside duncan's 12 string.
jangling janglier than ever,
byrdsian harmonies took flyte...
'that was fuuun' says nelson, interrupting me as i'm writing.
he's right!
they were on fire
(and I'll be missing 'em in sunny brighton - bugger!)

I was also at Woodstock (the Woodstock of Fair Rosamond and Blenheim Palace). It's a beautiful little town and a lovely setting for what turned out to be an intimate gem of a concert. There were two good support acts and then Anny, Nelson and Duncan with the help of Tony Poole took over. By the end we were all starry eyed and laughing.

Anyone who loves good music (I must particularly mention a superb a cappella piece in perfect three part harmony) should seek out one of the shows still to come. I'm probably going again tonight.

Send 'em on over!  
Or, at least tell them we'd like them to perform over here.  Can NOT get enough of good musical acts - too few and far between, it seems.

I attended a second night - this time The Beehive in Swindon, a tiny and extremely lively little place. Each show was different and each was great. Might even make a third and if I do I will certainly tell them that there is interest from the US. Two out of three are US natives, of course. We were lucky to also see Tony Poole of Starry Eyed and Laughing who made a huge contribution to the show and is also a really nice guy!
