As individuals Suzy Bogguss, Matraca Berg and Gretchen Peters have carved their own niche in the world of music to great acclaim.
However from chance meetings at various venues in the States and their subsequent love for this side of the pond all three decided to visit as a three piece act touring under the mantle of the Wine, Women and Song Tour.
As their recent tour came to a close earlier this week with an appearance at the British Mud Bath (Glastonbury) many are already looking forward to their next return visit.
Such is their popularity that over the years they have built up ‘Full House’ signs wherever they perform, the last North East date being The Sage Gateshead.
The show is a great relaxing night of entertainment with each providing many of their hit songs along with trio accompaniment, and tales of experiences, and cheeky banter (often provided by Suzy). Gretchen and Matraca relate that they are never to sure “What she is going to come out with next”.
If you have been unfortunate enough not to see any of their performances you can now catch up with a taste of ‘the girls night out’ in the comfort of your own home.
A DVD naturally entitled ‘Wine ,Women and Song’ was filmed ‘live’ at Green’s Grocery store at Liepers Fork in Tennessee earlier this year and is now available.
It runs over an hour and apart from eleven complete songs and great banter the viewer is treated to a visit from a local tornado as during the performance a power cut and a change of venue occur.
This is all captured in semi documentary candid footage and adds to the proceedings. Compliment that with interviews with the girls and it’s a great addition to your musical DVD collection.
