Footwork - MCR 10.15.14
This week, the footwear told the story. Young bluesman Selwyn Birchwood wore purple patent leather shoes. Keelan Donovan sported stylish dress shoes to go with his narrow plaid tie, crisp white shirt and melodic acoustic pop. Taylor Brashears wore cowboy boots as a compliment to her Patsy Montana inspired western dress. While Whiskey Shivers went barefoot. What was consistent was that our feet out in the audience were set to tapping by everything we heard. This is how we walk the walk at Roots.
What a nice varied lineup on a night when we had a huge group of fans and folks in Liberty Hall for their first-ever MCR (I took a show of hands at 7:50 and was kind of intimidated). The pressure was on - first impressions and all that. But I have to think the newbies were impressed. They gave Birchwood a standing ovation before he was even done with his set.
