Kendel Carson with Elvis Costello @ Royal Albert Hall!!!!


Elvis Costello with Kendel Carson
Royal Albert Hall
4 June 2013

I just found this great video on YouTube of my friend Kendel Carson playing the Royal Albert Hall with the legendary Elvis Costello.  This is a big deal!!  Regular readers of my musings will know I am a big KC fan and for her to get this opportunity is well deserved.

So the back story; while on tour in the UK in May/June with Dustin Bentall, Kendel got an invite to play with Elvis at the RAH.  She played with him once back in 2010 at the Gemini Awards which were broadcast nationally on Global.  That band also included Ron Sexsmith and Feist.  This time Kendel guested (is that a word?) with Elvis’ band the Imposters and performed half a dozen songs during their June 4, 2013 show.

Take a look at the video below and enjoy.  Also be sure to catch Kendel with Dustin Bentall & The Smokes or Belle Starr.  (Did I mention that I love Elvis’ Fender Jazzmaster?  I need to get one of those).
