Midnight Wine Review :- BUXTON FESTIVAL FRINGE => As somebody once sang ,Wherever I lay my hat , that's my home ; and from the moment Chris Milner - Journeyman popped his hat and coat onto the stand on stage at the UCR that's exactly how it felt . Chris has been a Folk Singer for over 50 years and the Journeyman tag reflects the fact that he has played to audiences as far afield as Europe, Turkey and Africa whilst never losing touch with the British music scene and the Folk Clubs of West Yorkshire in particular. One of his guitars his beloved Yamaha is 50 years old this year and he shared a story of how he came by it. having decided to save up his paper run money as a child. There was a twist in this tale, just for us and it was a feature of this particular gig that we felt we were being brought into his intimate circle. Being invited to bring in some wine definitly helped! Experience counts and Chris never put a foot wrong as he strummed his two guitars and sang his lyrical, sometimes humerous songs on subjects including teenagers, romantic break up, vain succesful singers, the deep comfort he has derived from his guitar and a particulaly lovely singalong-worthy finale 'Changing Role Of Woman' To echo a simple compliment that he particulaly cherishes (from folk singer Dave Burland) "Aye lad, nice take!"
