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

*They didn’t have those when I was a gel young feller. We only had shellac discs with a needle fashioned out of a wild boar tooth and you had to drill your own hole in the middle.
