Radio Mary

Radio Mary are a really excellent band – you’ll find them gigging in pubs around East Staffordshire.
Kevin Hand is the inspirational song-writer, and the musicians backing him really know how to make his songs work. 

And it’s not surprising Kevin’s original songs are so good (and so perceptive): in the late 1980s and the 1990s, he was the guy behind Yeah Jazz, one of the great folk-indie outfits that 'never quite made it'.

(PS - sorry to the others in the band, whom I couldn't squeeze into the pic. Pub was too crowded...!)

  1. I like live music, played with passion by people who know what they are about. Its not easy to get decent pics in a small crowded venue and often the lighting does not help.

  2. I find it hard to take shots of musicians that are any good- you've got this just right Mark- lovely lighting too.
