The Big Sets, at Craftworks Street Kitchen, Truro (jointly hosted by Steam Barber Shop) 22/09/17
It was wet, pouring in fact. My friends and I armed ourselves with umbrellas and headed out into the night, all because we had heard nothing but good things about The Big Sets. To the best of my knowledge this is the first event of this kind that Craftworks Street Kitchen has put on and to be honest I wasn’t quite sure how it was going to work. Pretty well as it turned out!
The oil drum bonfire was certainly welcome and gave the area a cosy ambience. For those who don’t know Craftworks it is a street food establishment set up in two converted shipping containers on Lemon Quay in Truro. There is a nice little outside space by the river which is where tonight’s little gig happened. Any event here is always going to be an intimate one due to space restrictions, and after tonight, I hope there are more to come.
I would however like a little more information when advertising any future events. There seemed to be some confusion over what time the band was actually playing. The Facebook ‘Event’ said from seven, when asked someone said eight, someone else said nine…? Being outside, the eight pm start time might be preferable through the autumn and winter months.
That being said this evening was great! The Big Sets are an incredibly well put together band who play blues like they were born to do it. Due to circumstances I couldn’t stay as long as I would have liked but I will be looking more in depth at these guys in the future.
