WHEN Admiral Fallow arrived on stage, the Cluny was packed and quiet, the audience attentive.
The set started with slow songs played with sensitivity and sung with passion.
Singer-songwriter Louis Abbott had the audience gripped while Kevin Brolly’s clarinet – together with Sarah Hayes’s piano, flute and accordion – helped to make the show a cut above the norm.
Apparently Admiral Fallow have played the Cluny a few times and have always enjoyed it.
After this performance it wouldn’t surprise me if next time they are in Newcastle they are filling a much bigger venue.
I was really pleased to have caught them playing this small and intimate space.
