Reviews

Artisan Live

This supreme a cappella team should need no introduction! Artisan, the dynamic trio of Jacey & Brian Bedford and Hilary Spencer, first started singing together in 1984, initially for fun - but they're still together over twenty years later. Well only just - for Artisan as a performing unit will be no more, their final concert due to take place in Penistone, South Yorkshire, only a few miles from their Birdsedge home, on 20th November; definitely a case of quitting while they're ahead! Unbelievably (in view of their incredible success as a live act and the fantastic rapport they've always achieved with their audiences), they've never released a live album, so here at the eleventh hour comes this wonderful 67-minute set, which consists of a transfer of the bulk of an 85-minute live-to-air radio broadcast from WFMT Radio, Chicago back in March 2002. Anyone who has at any time considered Artisan the epitome of soulless perfection will take comfort from this release, for it's truly a "warts-and-all" set, living dangerously with a one-take performance. Sure, the usual Artisan trademark of careful preparation and rehearsal is present and correct throughout, but even in the obviously scripted intros there's plenty of spontaneity and the trio's sense of fun comes across in spades. As it does in their singing, naturally. Excellent solo singing, fabulous harmonies, solid ensemble work, great technique, serious accomplishment at the service of 15 superbly crafted songs (all Brian's own compositions, running the emotional gamut from What's The Use Of Wings?, I'll Sail No More and White Horses to NIMBY, Mabel and Go With A Smile On My Face - which of course they do, and so will you!). Artisan Live! is both the ultimate memento of this class act and the ultimate primer for those who've not previously been tempted to purchase an Artisan CD but have harboured a secret admiration for the trio's craft.
