A little more than a week ago, I got a chance to hear a private concert at a friend's apartment. Lee MacDougall is a British singer/songwriter who's doing a 30 day U.S. I've gone to hear friends play at small clubs before, but I'd never been to see an artist I didn't know is such a small setting. My friend Shanna knows the singer's publicist/manager through work. They arranged this concert in her loft when they stopped in Atlanta, on their way to Nashville.
That's Lee in the middle and his tour manager Kevin on the left. They're travelling with accompanist/guitarist Rob. I think that's it, end of entourage. I didn't see what they're travelling in, but I'm guessing it's not a tricked-out tour bus. It seems like quite the do-it-yourself tour, but they seem to be having a great time. They were all very nice. They walked around Shanna's neighborhood before the concert, they had drinks and chatted with us, too.
Above, Kevin talks to a couple of Shanna's guests. Below, the lovely Shanna! She makes a mean cocktail, by they way. I'd say all who tried it were impressed with something called a Kentucky Mule.
Falling in Love for the Last Time is still running through my head.
The day after this private concert, Lee agreed to come to my day job, where I interviewed him about his career and his tour. Because of all the major news going on in the world, it just published online today.
I didn't shoot the video, but most of it was shot on a Canon 7D.
