KT Tunstall - 'Black Horse & the Cherry Tree' (live on Jools Holland 2008)
This week's guest spot from the delightful Mrs S: I've heard that her 12-egg carbonara has to be tasted to be believed! So I will be placing my order in advance please!!
So ... picture this attractive scene: Jon & I collapsed on the sofa some considerable time after we should have gone to bed sort-of watching Jools Holland. I had just decided it was time to stop arsing about & actually go to bed when someone new appeared on stage and distracted me (not a tough thing to do.) The someone was a girl with a guitar and to be honest I didn't pay much attention because that was not extraordinary in itself. Still, I stuck around to watch, mostly because I still couldn't be bothered to go to bed.

I listened as one girl with a guitar, a tambourine and an effects pedal created layer upon layer within this amazing song and I was hooked. Actually having just watched it again I'm STILL hooked. That appearance on Jools Holland was her first on TV and obviously since then I've heard this song on the radio a million times and I've seen her do it live with a band but it's never been quite the same. Once the band was added and it got to sounding a bit more "slick" somehow it lost something.
KT Tunstall started out busking and is in my opinion still at her best left to her own devices with as little accompaniment as possible. Proof of this if proof could possibly still be needed:-
