 THE TAMI SHOW (2020): The lady in lockdown
Given that last year was a pretty lousy one for many people (self included) many were looking forward to a fresh start in 2020.

Well, then that happened . . .

Few musicians were looking forward to this year as much as singer-songwriter Tami Neilson who had a fine album ready to go (Chickaboom! reviewed here), had the backing to tour internationally to consolidate her growing following, had already had some terrific advance notices (“Just call 2020 'The Year of Tami,' ” and Chickaboom! “the first great album of the year.” said the influential No Depression magazine in January) and . . . 

Well, then that happened . . .

However Neilson in isolation in Auckland is nothing if not inventive (check this video essay of previous clips) and so – because the name was just so obvious and up to be grabbed – she launched her online series The Tami Show.

It is a series of 18 minute music and humour sessions with her brother Jay in Canada, the co-creator of her current Chickaboom! album.

It's a fun show.

Elsewhere has long been a Tami Neilson fan and always wonder how she could possibly have gone past anyone, such is the power and sensitivity of her songwriting and singing, not to mention her larger-than-life personality.

If you missed The Tami Show we happily present some of the episodes here
