Out On The Tiles

Langhorne Slim and Ryan Lauder at the Iron Horse Dec. 2, 2010

Ryan Lauder came all the way from Scotland and landed in Burlington, VT. He bought a guitar and with his clean, crystal voice endeared the Iron Horse crowd with a seven song set that was a perfect segway for Langhorne Slim tonight. Lauder's voice bellowed what he called 'romantic' ballads that were sad, intense and whisper strong. Rose and Crown was as endearing as it was technical. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iBnXr8EYzxY

One of my favorites was "Hole in My Pocket" " ... and the blues, and the blues and the blues whisper away..."

He took to the banjo, and then Jeff Ratner and David  Moore joined him on to the stage, treating us to a song together. They really jammed http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=25DE4ngGIR8 The last song "I see my reflection in you" had some great guitar slides and showed he is quite a well rounded musician. Come again to our strange land, Mr. Lauder!
