Back23 tour – “my aim is to attempt 23 dishes”
After the residency was confirmed by the good people of the brunswick green tess made this comment about the tour
” well i think it’s high time these puppies had an airing.
We will be offering the occasional cover & even a sneak preview of some new material. But my aim is to attempt 23 dishes”

Yes direct from beilong

….Tess mckenna plays 23 songs from her back catalogue at the brunswick green hotel
….Tess’ songs not so much stripped back but more like sandblasted to reveal a classic three piece interpretation, Bass drums & guitar

…Beautiful courtyard
Sure there will be sad songs but they will be beautiful
There will be light & shade with the occassional cover & usual light hearted banter you’d expect after a couple of relaxing drinks in the beautiful courtyard which is to be found at the brunswick green hotel

    Based on your recommendation, I scored Boom Bam, Take me to the Place, and Make me Wonder yesterday and have played the tracks continuously since then. Just outstanding. Thanks

    Too bad you won’t be in that balmy beer garden, under the 2 shady lemon trees, Dr Guy.

  • […] November whooshed through like a freight train, and now I’m strapped precariously to the howling juggernaut of December. One thing’s for sure, I’m happy I said yes to playing those four November sessions with Tess McKenna. The best singer-songwriter in the world, in space. One of the things we’re told we have to learn at this parenting and working life stage is how to say no – and I’m getting better at it, honest. But there are some things you should really say yes to, as well, because if you don’t you could be impoverished. If I hadn’t played with Tess the house might be cleaner and the Christmas cards done, but a certain something which buoys me through the December madness would be missing. […]
