concert review in UK

Just came across this one.. would have loved to see her version of
`Can't Help Falling In Love With You'


Heartaches and harmony May 31 2006

By Elaine Irwin, The Evening Chronicle

The intimate atmosphere of the Live Theatre lent itself well to two personable performers at the Jumpin Hot Club.

Dry-humoured Canadian Luke Doucet warmed up the crowd with a set from his latest recording, which by his own admission is a `heartbreak record' telling the tale of a split with a former love.

He lived to tell the tale very well, providing banter with the audience in-between songs and informing us, among other subjects, of the reaction of his muse to the tracks ("grow up and move on"), his impending nuptials to a new leading lady and about his younger brother, the biggest drug dealer in his home town.

Doucet kept the crowd engaged and even managed to pull off forgetting the lyrics to one of his songs, making it entertaining enough to look like part of the act.

After the conversational style and personal musings of Doucet, Tift Merritt came across as very softly spoken and a little nervous at first. Then she began to sing. Even without the microphone the entire room was filled with her `from the gut' bluesy voice.

As she warmed up, and the beer flowed for both the audience and herself, Tift lost the nervous edge and began to let go. She shied away from some of the more upbeat tunes at first because, as she kept saying, she felt she needed the band with her. However, these were the ones that got the crowd going and, as the spectacular performance of `I Am Your Tambourine' showed, all she needed was her guitar and that amazing voice.

The encore saw Doucet and Merritt team up for a track, followed by Tift covering `Can't Help Falling In Love With You'. An amazing song sung by an exceptional voice, and a fitting end to an extremely entertaining night.
