Before life started to completely unravel on me last September I did manage to get out to two live gigs, on consecutive nights!! Nothing for months and then two, one after another.
One event I was very, very, very excited about. Home Free were in Birmingham. Regulars readers of my blog will know that my parents discovered these amazing guys on You Tube last year and we all became huge fans. I was jumping around the room when I discovered they were visiting my city and I was so thrilled to get tickets. The weather was atrocious the night they were on, torrential rain, fierce winds but you couldn’t keep me away. I actually let out a scream when they walked out on stage, thankfully I wasn’t the only one that did so. Oh my, those guys can sing. It was pure joy from start to finish. I don’t have the words to convey how fantastic I found this concert, I think I’m probably obsessed by them. If you haven’t heard their voices check them out Home Free on You Tube
I have a few pictures from the evening…of course.
Jeffery Joseph East was the support and he is definitely going places, a pure voice, great lyrics and built a good rapport with the audience. Jeffrey Joseph East
Yes I was fairly close and yes I have my eyes peeled for the next time they visit Birmingham, I so want to be there.
With love and sparkles xx
Our latest new music find and I have to admit it was my parents who discovered Peter Hollens. What a voice! Peter is an A Cappella singer and he has collaborated with the wonderful “Home Free” who I recently blogged about. I love his post video chat, he is so full of enthusiasm, his love of the music and his engagement with his followers, he is inspirational to me on my musical journey.
I’ll let you judge for yourselves; I have chosen below a few of our favourites. My parents love these folk songs and they are so very calming to listen to. Peter’s latest release which features Tim Foust from Home Free is just incredible. “Greensleeves” is for me complete perfection in one video. Let me know what you think.
You can locate Peter Hollens on his website https://peterhollens.com/
I hope you have enjoyed this A Cappella Musical Interlude…and calm with the sparkles x
A few months ago I discovered Home Free. As usual I am late to the party. I am now however completely obsessed and I mean OBSESSED. I cannot get enough of listening to these guys sing, such wonderful harmonies. I completely forget that every sound is made just by their voices, no musical instruments at all. I believe they may be about to announce a European tour and I really hope Birmingham is on their list…I keep tweeting them to include Birmingham within their schedule. Did I mention that they are kinda hot too!
I’ll share a few of my favourite songs below. I’ve limited myself to four otherwise this could be my largest blog post ever and you wouldn’t need to visit their You Tube Channel. If you’d like to check them out yourself you’ll find them at:
This is just so perfect, the voices, the hymn, the scenery. It is well with my soul.
The Home Free guys usually inject some humour into their video’s. All About the Bass…oh those voices!! My junk is in all the right places 🙂
I so want to meet these guys for a beer on a Friday night.
Such a beautiful song and a wonderful video. The guys asked seven couples to chose a photograph from their past, their memories…love is Timeless.
Well I have happily had a Monday morning fix of Home Free which has set me up for the day. Just another reason why Music is my salvation and my heart and soul are Country. To be able to escape into these video’s, sing the songs and dance just uplifts me and I can take on whatever the day throws my way…which as you know can be just about anything as a full time carer to my parents.
Proud to call myself a Home Fry!
Happy Monday, wishing you a totally sparkling week ahead.
