Run to the finish line

Last stop at Bluesfest for 2008: The Roots Stage. Trevor Alguire was the first (and second last) show of the day there. It was also the release show for his new album, 30 Year Run. It was actually an improbably long time since I'd seen him live - the last time had been at The Bayou, when he performed with The Brothers Chaffey, back in the summer of 2006. In the intervening years he's a acquired a completely new backing band, The Roving Troubadors: Keith Glass, Michael Ball, Peter Newsom, Alistair Dennett and Gilles Leclerc (who wasn't around for this performance, but does play on the album).

Michael Ball is of course one-half of Ball & Chain.

Left to right, Peter, Prairie Oysterman Keith and Alistair.

Michael also handled mandolin duties this time around.

Rhythm section action!

Keith sings a bit.

Roving action!

And so on.

Big finishing kick!

His next show in town is at The Elmdale Tavern December 12. He's also playing solo in nearby Shawville, Quebec, Dec. 6 at Cafe 349.
