CAITLIN ROSE Stereo, Glasgow, March 12 * * *

August 11, 2011

It’s hard to say whether the shambolic air that pervaded much of Dallas-born singer/songwriter Caitlin Rose’s set tonight added to or detracted from the country singer’s performance as a whole.

At times the missteps proved quite endearing, adding to the intimate atmosphere. It also managed to distract attention from what was overall a fairly average collection of songs. However as technical difficulties persisted the set did begin to flounder.

Even with perfect sound it’s hard to imagine songs like Learning To Ride, Rabbits and Things Change truly distinguishing themselves, especially given the over-used pedal steel guitar, which by and large conjured up the same feel throughout.
