Beth Orton @ Town Hall, 10/4/2012
Beth Orton

Beth Orton played Town Hall last night supporting her just-released Sugaring Season , her first LP in six years. She started her set solo, switching between acoustic guitar and piano, but was joined after a few songs by opener Sam Amidon, as well as Thomas "Doveman" Bartlett and violinist Rob Moose who accompanyed her for the rest of the set. Orton's also quite the storyteller, entertaining the crowd between numbers -- with a thicker South London accent than you might expect given the delicate nature of her songs.

As mentioned, Sam Amidon opened the show and Doveman and Moose accompanied him as well on his set of Irish and traditional folk songs. Doveman, Sam and Beth will join forces again at Beacon Theater on October 30. Meanwhile you can catch Doveman next Friday (10/12) at LPR with, as previously mentioned, guests Owen Pallett and Dawn Landes, as well as the just-added Steve Salett.

Im annoyed at Beth playing Town Hall. I was trying to get some tax information and some deeds and she was in the way causing a headache...She blocked the printer when I was trying to make copies too! The Clerk had nothing to do with the whole thing either as she was on lunch break!

The Clerks are always useless!

She still looks amazing.

This definitely was not Beth Orton's first NYC show in 6 years. She performed at Joe's Pub earlier this spring. She also performed a number of shows in 2008 & 2009 in NYC and Brooklyn. Fact check!

"his definitely was not Beth Orton's first NYC show in 6 years."

You are right, though this post went live at 2:16pm. That unfortunate typo was fixed by about 2:20. You commented at 3:05??

That said, embarrassing and obvious mistake obviously, but it was because it was supposed to say "first album in 6 years" (not "first NYC show in 6 years")

thanks!

Great show--really liked the new songs, and the accompaniment from Sam and Mr. Moose was fantastic. "Concrete Sky" was a highlight--slowed down and rolling and majestic.
