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.
