The second part of the concert last Friday was from Minta and The Brook Trout. This four-piece acoustic rock band couldn’t have been more different than Samuel Úria, but the two sessions complemented each other perfectly. A Portuguese band that sings solely in English (the other group I think of like this are Fingertips), Minta sang poignantly about love and loss.
For this evening we were restricted to a space at the rear of the auditorium, as there was no pit and the stage was about a metre from the front row of chairs. Both Samuel and Minta were excellent, and thanks again to Paulo of Vachier and David of the Teatro Aveirense for the opportunity.
