John Hiatt - Take Root Festival 2008.

This is John Hiatt performing a solo acoustic set at the Take Root Festival in Oosterpoort, Groningen, Holland back on the 4th October 2008. The material is a mixture of songs from across the years, along with a few from his current album of the time 'Same Old Man'. Some artists have the ability to grab my attention from the first chord and in this case the power, passion, energy and full sound just adds to the occasion. The radio host mentioned that John was flown in especially for this gig, having performed in North America throughout the summer promoting the album. He has also worked alongside Lyle Lovett on a number of occasions since 2008 and is currently touring Europe performing undertaking both solo and joint gigs with Lyle.
