Gwyneth at The Gala

In his 'What's On' guide (see link elsewhere on this page) Paul Bream expressed his reservations about tonight's Gwyneth Herbert gig.
I should have taken heed. Don't get me wrong, the gal is a fine singer, she writes good original songs and the Gala audience adored her, but, I'm afraid, she didn't do it for me. The jazz content was minimal and linking her to Norah Jones, appropriate. I also detected a hint of Janis Ian. For an encore 'Gwynnie' did (I think) "My Last Lullaby" which she sang unmiked from down among the audience. It had moments of, and I use the word advisedly, rare beauty. Paradoxically, outside of the theatre, before the show started, a girl was handing out flyers advertising Clare Teal's 'Get Happy' CD; I wonder if that got Gwyneth happy?
