The Heartbroken return for another outstanding show

The show I really wanted to see was the return of the Heartbroken.

 These rising country/ pop/ folk stars featuring Dahmnait Doyle, drummer/ vocalist Blake Manning, bassist Peter Fusco, Guitarist / vocalist Damhnait Doyle and lead guitarist Stuart Cameron.
 They played to a “Small but mighty crowd” of about 20, which is about twice as many as they had back in February.

 They started off slow with Doyle playing some pretty mandolin and slowly building up the energy.

She donned a beautiful old 1963  Gibson SG for a couple numbers including the likely next single “The Truth,” then a couple more.
 Doyle and Manning supplied beautifully haunting vocal harmonies.
They switched instruments throughout, with  Fusco picking up the mandolin  and Cameron adding  lap steel guitar for another sad, slow song.
 It was an excellent show which deserved more people.
