LAURA VEIRS
Railway Inn, Winchester, UK [no label, 1CD]
Sept 21, 2004

Laura Veirs of Seattle is saddled with the folksinger label yet she is seen to straddle a territory that stretches between Liz Phair and Patti Smith. Like many singer-songwriters, which seems a more apt term, Veirs is a poet first. Her debut album for Nonesuch Records, Carbon Glacier, was released in August 2004. It was a hit in Europe but remained a cult favourite in the United States. In September this year, she released her follow-up album (it's actually her fifth album), Year Of Meteors. This excellent audience recording of Veirs' show at the Railway Inn in Winchester on Sept 21, 2004, is a fine showcase for her then-current album, Carbon Glacier. Veirs' songs demand rapt attention and those present willingly gave it to her. The songs may sound precious but there is a fraility that is heartwarming and makes you want to listen to Veirs again and again. A fan who was present at the gig said the songs "oozed integrity… and understated intelligence. It was a joy to be there."
