Archant

This was the first night of the tour and the gig began with a smoke filled stage, set up to look like the inside of a 1950s airliner.

A calypso beat struck up, the Mariachi trumpet kicked in, and we were off.

It really did feel like the start of a summer holiday. Caro Emerald has a sultry, retro style that she uses to paint pictures, evocative of old black and white movies.

What a night. Try to catch her while you can.
