NFTF recently went to the French Fete in Santa Barbara, CA looking for a good time and some off the rock n’ roll beaten track music. Ketchup Soup fit the bill in more ways than one which may say a lot about our mood that day. It had been a long time since NFTF had heard any version of Leonard Cohen’s “Suzanne”, but there they were singing this and many other obscure songs from an age of music that had waned into the fabric of our past.
Yes, given the fact that this IS a French Fete there is an accordion involved, but what sweet sounds can the lovely player evoke from this romantic musical instrument. It was weird how this troupe of players seamlessly wove a story of life into something relatable in terms of the French theme and an era that plays heavy on many a mind these days and still managed to cross generational lines.
