How was your experience?
...Attended based on hearing Jakob on NPR, where a couple of his new songs were presented with interview, and I liked him a lot. As often happens in concert situations, the instrumentation (which was excellent) was so strong, and the singer's diction was not - so the experience was obviously great for the fans all around us who knew the words to the songs, but it was less good for us. It made us wish for a setup like at the opera where the text is shown above the stage! I think performers in rehearsal should always have someone in the house who doesn't already know the songs helping to set a balance between the singer and the instruments.
