Review of Bap's appearance at the Summertyne Americana Festival on 26 Jul 2015:
As the roadies cleared the stage there was a bit of a buzz going around; because this was the first time Northern Irish singer-songwriter Bap Kennedy had played Tyneside since Adam was a lad and it was apparent fans had come in vast numbers just to see him.
Alongside friend and brilliant acoustic guitarist Gordon McCallister, Bap not only ‘stole the show’ with a set of songs from his last three albums; but all three went on to sell out at the merch desk.
I’ve travelled far and wide to see Kennedy’s occasional concerts; but todays may have been the best yet, with his voice never sounding finer with his banter between songs often hilarious. Plus; he had brought the World Famous Bap Kennedy Line-Dancing Troupe with him too – who expected dancing girls?
