Another superb lunchtime concert at Basement Discs today was a delightful performance by Lisa Miller, in company with Shane O’Mara, singing songs from her latest CD Car Tape 2.
Car Tape 2 is a collection of cover songs by various artists - a companion album to her first Car Tape CD of 2002, Lisa makes them her own, by her tasteful arrangements and interpretations. I was delighted that she performed the Ryan Adams song She Wants To Play Hearts first up.
Also on the album are songs by Tim Harding, Neil Young, Bert Jansch and Francoise Hardy among others.
Lisa Miller is always a pleasure to see, and you could listen to her appealing voice all day without tiring of it. Ace guitarist Shane O’Mara naturally played very tasteful guitar accompaniment.

In June, the music continues with Basement Discs having scheduled Deborah Conway & Willy Zygier for 4th June, with interesting Tartar/Russian artist Zulya performing on June 12th. Josh Owen and Barb Waters perform later in the month.
In other music news, Leonard Cohen is to return in November. Having just looked at Frontier Touring to check the price of tickets, I think I’ll give him a miss. Platinum tickets (best seats) are $284.00!
