Joe Ely at Dingwall's

One of the great exponents of Tex Mex music, Joe Ely from the flatlands of west Texas attracted a big crowd to his only London show last night. As ever Joe displayed superb guitar work and was in fine voice as he performed many of his (and Butch Hancock's) best known songs, including Silver city, Me and Billy the Kid, She never spoke Spanish to me and Boxcars. Performing as a trio this was an understated performance on the whole with a predominance of slower numbers - an exception being a rousing version of I fought the law. But it was the beautiful accordian work of Joel Guzman which brightened up what might otherwise have been a somewhat flat performance.
