The evening with Fran and Andy could simply not have been more of a treat for a TRAVIS fan, and anyone who enjoys elegant songwriting, singing, and musicianship. The Workplay venue was outstanding...intimate and fantastic sound. The gents from Glasgow played for near 2.5 hours and left their audience, especially me and my wife, desperately wanting for more. The setlist was amazing, as was learning of the backstories and personal inspirations and influences that have led to the wonderful music TRAVIS has created. Excuse me if these are a little off, but this was at least close to the order of songs shared - ALL with passion and excellence.
