After I acquired my Trews Acoustic tickets for the Fredericton Playhouse I was delighted to find out Tim Chaisson would be opening up the show with a scaled down version of his performance. I have seen Tim
Chaisson and Morning Fold on many occasions and was very excited to see the
different live performance.
Chaisson and guitarist Tian Wigmore played an amazing set with songs from their newest release “Broken Hearted Beat” and a great cover of Big Sugar’s “All Hell For A Basement.”
Through a few technical issues and amazing grace handling drunken heckling
Chaisson and Wigmore stole the show and won a lot of fans. Throughout the rest
of the night I witnessed a lot of people with Chaisson CD’s and Wigmore had a line
develop to sign some discs for fans.
Chaisson’s stage presence is amazing, for an artist who is technically new to a lot of cities he is not new to the stage and it is undeniable. The composure and quality of performance is beyond 90% of
professional bands and one would think these guys had been on stage for the
last 20 years. Wigmore was the big surprise, he is an amazing talent who plays
amazing accents and his note selection stands up to the old saying that being a
great musician is about playing the right notes not how many. A lot of guitarists
strive to be fast and work to impress more then they strive to perfect. There
are many guitarists who will play 300 notes and not hit two in a row that were
worth playing. Wigmore is a talent that Chaisson is blessed to have.
Check out their new singles video “Slippin Away” and help them out with a vote on the Much More Music countdown.
