A Night Of Music // Hudson Taylor


This must have been the fifth time I've tried to write a blog recently but I have the will power to actually carry this one on fully! If you hadn't noticed already I haven't been blogging at all recently, partly due t the fact that I'm doing my GCSE's but also due to the fact that I sort of lost the confidence to post anything...

But! I am back now and am ready to come back with a boom! What have I been doing recently? Well apart from the endless hours of revising and procrastinating I went to a concert! A few months ago I was introduced to the Irish folk duo Hudson Taylor and instantly fell in love with their music.

 Made up of two brothers from Dublin, Alfie and Harry associate their music around guitars and good old fashioned folk/ folk pop music. After listening to them endlessly on Spotify and watching them on YouTube they announced their first headline gig in London! I was so excited and instantly wanted to get tickets. A few months later that day came!

The venue was the Electric Ballroom Camden and although very small, I preferred it as it makes the gig a little bit more intimate for both the artist and the audience.
The supporting acts were both brilliant; Kimberly Anne was an acoustic pop artist who knew how to connect with the audience even when we didn't know the words to her songs! Secondly there was a band called Flyte. Their genre of music was alternative a personal favourite and now a favourite band, they got the crowd warmed up and really gave off a great vibe! Will definitely be seeing them again!

Now onto Hudson Taylor themselves! By the time they came on I was so excited! 9:30pm, an excited audience singing Hudson Taylor and an empty stage. When the two Irish boys walked onto stage the crowd roared to life and the atmosphere grew intensely. The duo themselves are amazing humble guys who were star struck throughout their flawless performance.

The set itself was brilliant as they sang all of their well known songs as well as a great chunk of new ones from their up and coming album (out in September!) One of the best things was seeing them up on stage just doing what they love most and having the time of their life! Here are some of the photos I got! 

Credit to my best bud who came along with me:) -
They even had T-shirts designed especially for the venue!

All in all  it was a brilliant night and I'm so glad I was able to go It's safe to say I will 110% be seeing them again!

Until next time!
