Elliott Murphy @ Fnac Forum, Paris March 26th 2010

Elliott Murphy @ Fnac forum
Paris march 26th 2010 5:30 PM
Before his concert tomorrow ( saturday) @ the New Morning club in Paris, Elliott Murphy with the Normandy all star Feat. Olivier Durand is doing a bit of promo for their latest DVD recorded live in Paris.
I haven't seen him in a long time , probably when he was a guest of Bruce Springsteen @ Parc des Princes in June 2008 ( click for review & Pics).

So it's cool to have in back over here, in fact he's living in Paris.
He opened this 40 min free show, in the middle of the cd racks, with a tribute to Alex chilton who died last week by playing a short version of The Letter as the technicians were checking the sound.
Elliott Murphy is always great on stage, his fanclub was there and the Fnac was packed to hear him playing acoustic version of his songs( 6-7 songs if I can remember ), including "Green River".
I won't be able to go on saturday ( There is an Oliver Peel session ) but if you like Americana music it's a gig NOT to be missed.
