RM Hubbert @ Gig At The Grove

Having only out about Gig At The Grove via Twitter at 11am this morning, I was intrigued to see what kind of set up they would have at Kelvingrove Art Gallery & Museum.

A four pronged line up included Tom Vevers, The Lotus Project, Any Color Black and RM Hubbert.

The stage was positioned underneath the famous organ, off to the right. I arrived just in time to check out RM Hubbert and his unique brand of fingerpicking guitar music. And I'm bloody glad I did. The setting of Kelvingrove gave the acoustic performance an extra oomph, with each delicate pick echoing through the halls and back into the eager crowd's ears. You get the feeling that RM Hubbert felt at home, amidst the grand halls, the painting and sculptures. And that he was itching to get a shot of that organ.

You can also stream RM Hubbert's debut album 'First & Last' for free below. It's well worth a listen, and once you have listened, it's well worth buying the album here.
