Colin MacDonald reviews Girlyman at Stereo + Kimmie Rhodes at the CCA Glasgow

For a young woman who has evidently beaten leukaemia into remission, it was going to take more than a mere throat infection for founder-member Doris Muramatsu to cancel Girlyman?s much-anticipated Glasgow gig. So the recently augmented quartet - bolstered now by drummer J J Jones (ex Po? Girl) at Stereo in Renfield Lane, Glasgow for Alan Hendry - turned in a memorable and extended set that showcased the band?s new album, Supernova, but also revisited earlier delights of the Everything?s Easy recording.

Memorable tunes allied to pensive, thoughtful lyrics have long been the hallmark of this Atlanta-based outfit?s collective style, with the icing on its musical cake being flawless, trademark soaring harmonies.

While generous with their talents on stage, the Girlyman members also proved very ready to mingle in the interval then meet and chat with their supporters, happily signing albums, concert flyers and even ticket stubs as cherished souvenirs of a musically super-cool evening on what was one of this summer?s hottest days.

A show, incidentally, opened by the entertaining and polished Seonaid Aitken Set, a trio outing on this occasion with the classically-trained Fife fiddler backed by Davy and Paul Dickson whose skills and style are neatly encapsulated in the Furious Floyd EP.

Kimmie Rhodes at CCA

Texan Kimmie Rhodes was another visiting performer a - she talks to her audiences as if they?ve known each other all their lives.Perhaps, as a glance at some fellow members of the audience at the Centre for Contemporary Arts in Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow suggested, that really is the case.

The lady herself, accompanied on guitar in Glasgow by her instrumentalist/record producing son Gabriel - Gabe, as she calls him - was a couthy, low-key romp through her three decades of songwriting, leavened by some chatty insights (some might call it name dropping?) into encounters on and off stage with some giants of country-flavoured music making.

Her latest collection, discwise, is Dreams of Flying, produced at Sunbird Studios in Austin, Texas by Gabe but mixed and recorded by Kimmie?s late husband, Joe Gracey. A truly talented family.
