Chris Conway's 20th Anniversary Concert celebrating 20 years in showbusiness
A magical concert focussing on his songs recorded live at The Musician, Leicester, UK. 108 minutes of concert footage and a 23minute bonus feature.


background
Throughout my 20th year I tried to think of ways to mark the occasion. I had concerts through the year, and I'd planned on making a "greatest hits live" album from those recordings. Then I realised one thing I hadn't got much of was video footage, not just of me but of the many musician chums I've been playing music with for so long.

So I decided to do it all at one concert - put on a concert with as many music chums as could make it - record the music on multitrack, and have it filmed on 2 cameras.

Much mixing and editing later and I got the album and the dvd in the bag!

I struggled for a long time as to how much to put on the dvd - eventually Neil Segrott the bass player said - "Just put it all on" - so I kept all the tracks. As it seemed a bit of a marathon I devided the dvd up into the 2 sets.

David Crosby, John Sebastian, Alan Stivell, Paul Kantner, Country Joe McDonald, Jesse Colin Young, Buffy Sainte-Marie, James Taylor, Jimmy Webb

CHRIS CONWAY
In Concert DVD (OBLONG) www.chrisconway.org


Celebrating twenty years as a professional musician, In Concert DVD captures Chris Conway on stage at The Musician in Leicester, a town the American multi-instrumentalist has called home these past two decades and more.

Joined at various points in the evening by regular collaborators Neil Segrott (bass, vocals), Neil Robjohn (cajon), Vikki Clayton (vocals, guitar), Dan Britton (guitar, vocals, bodhran) and Adele McMahon (violin), Conway and his team rattle through a wide-ranging selection of material from his past and present. It’s a showcase for the hugely prolific and vastly underrated (he’s Leicester’s best-kept musical secret) performer, whether singing his light and airy West Coast-style compositions, assorted material infused with more exotic world and Celtic influences, or indulging in his mad professor-like experiments with the theremin; spooky …

In addition to the 108 minutes of music, there’s a twenty-three-minute extra featuring the main man reminiscing.

CHRIS CONWAY
The Musician, Leicester

For the celebration of his twenty years as a professional musician, Chris Conway has rounded up friends and associates from all stages and phases of his career and his set list and instrumentation is equally wide-ranging. Filk (science fiction-based folk music, a genre in which Conway is very successful), Irish diddley diddley folk and plain old singer-songwriter pieces all makes regular appearances, though his more-esoteric electronic leanings are kept down to a single excursion on theremin.

Lyrics of the likes of ‘Carousel’ and ‘Train Of Thought’ act as a powerful and thought-provoking counterpoint. The gig is being filmed for a DVD, which leads to much entertaining hamming it up, staged entrances and applause from the large and warm crowd.

Highlights include special guest Vikki Clayton, Conway’s playing of two whistles at once tour de force on his own ‘Rainbow Real’ and the reliably silly and entertaining ‘Alien Jellyfish Song’. Yet it’s not only a measure of Conway’s professionalism that it all does ultimately come together, but also of the esteem in which he’s held that the crowd don’t drift off as the clock approaches midnight. It feels more like a gathering of old friends than a commercial gig, and that can only be a good thing.
