After a lull of 3 days we started the weekend with a bit of culture at Three Mo’ Tenors at Assembly @ St George’s Church.
Lorraine has persuaded me to cast my festival going further than comedy again, what with flamenco last year, and Havana Rumba this year, so a trip to see some tenors in concert is yet another new experience.
Three black dudes dressed in what I would class as standard opera get-up (top hat and tails – without the top hat) perfomed various pieces, both as a trio and as soloists. Musically backed up by some top quality piano, drum, guitar, and double bass playing.
It was all brilliantly performed – foot tapping or completely emotionally enthralling – it had the entire range. All accompanied by some nifty footwork by the 3. In fact at some stages it was almost a song and dance show rather than just song. It all added to what was a great hour and a bit of entertainment.
