Lianne La Havas The stunning Lianne La Havas made her way to the stage donning a beautiful full length dress and trademark scooped up hair-do. Always elegant, always beautiful, tonight was much the same. The only difference tonight was her opening guitar of choice, as she was wielding a bass guitar – something I’d not seen her do before. Not that it mattered a jot, seemingly at home plucking 4 slightly thicker strings than the 6 of her more traditional guitar.

Lianne La Havas Every now and again, you go to a gig and although the act has played well and ticked all the boxes, the night lacked that certain pazzazz. Sometimes however, something special, nay magical happens. A night to savour. Some might call it a 'wow night'. Monday at The Glee Club in Birmingham was one such evening. The omens were good from the start when the main act, Miss Lianne La Havas pottered past and said hello to me. Glorious! Support came from the uber talented Marques Toliver who offered an act seldom seen, belting out glorious vocal on top of looped violin, whilst playing lead violin over the top. Ingenious. In a time when people are trying find a unique twist this was certainly one.
