The 3rd Possibility Screams event of the year was held at the lovely Unity Grill in Ayr. It was standing room only once again and the enthusiastic crowd were served up a delicious amount of great music.
Catching Fireflies kicked it all off in style with a five song set loaded with wonderful original material, soaring vocals and sweet guitar licks. They debuted their version of a new cover ‘Rain’ by Breaking Benjamin and it added a new maturity to their fantastic existing set of songs . What a great start to the night.
The next act was the youngest performer of the evening Connor Hunter. He was brilliant, the crowd loved his three song set . One was a new original which went down really, really well but he blew the place apart with a cover of Johnny Cash’s ‘Folsom Prison Blues’. At only 9 yrs with such boldness, surely his future is wide open .
Ryann Alexander showed a new level of confidence as she stepped up next with her five song set . She kicked it off with the original ‘Steal My Crown’ and just kept going with a great choice of material. She really has a wonderful voice and it was great to hear her speak as well as play some lovely guitar on the original ‘Rising Sun’.
Colin Hyslop strapped his guitar on next and treated the lovely, encouraging crowd to three great songs. He has a strong voice and loves to sing but it was good to hear him play some guitar also. He sure tore it up with the last song, ‘Johnny B Goode’. Colin always brings lightness and fun to His set.
Next up was Elly Priestnall. She sang three fantastic Country style story songs. I have to say I didn’t know any and it felt like I was hanging on listening to every word. Her voice was sweet and lovely and it was a great performance from Elly .
Last but certainly not least was Caitlin Taylor. She kicked it off with the fine original song ‘Fire In Me’. Great song to start her six song set .She also treated the crowd to great covers. They sang along and had a rare time . Most notably for me was the delightful cover of ‘This Girl’ by Lauren Daigle. She has a great voice and really good stage presence for a young girl.
Ryann Alexander and Catching Fireflies came back up and did one song each to close a fantastic night of music .To think the average of these performers was approx. 15ys says the future of music is in Good Hands. Thanks to all the amazing performers and everyone who came and supported and to Unity Grill for having us…
