In what is possibly one of the few tribute gigs staged to mark the 20th anniversary of the death of Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain, the Lord Nelson pub in Alcester was the setting for a tribute night to remember as the whole Unplugged set was performed live just as it was for MTV in 1993.

“Saturday was an amazing night and a fantastic celebration of music!” said Lydia Scarlett, a local singer-songwriter who sang three tracks on the night including her favourite, Lake of Fire.

“The band were outstanding, I personally had no rehearsal with them but hit it first time in front of the live audience just by feeling my way through, feeding off the energy, and having full confidence in the band; felt completely safe, this resulting in a beautiful performance.

Fellow singers were all charismatic, a joy to share the evening with and clearly had a soft spot for Kurt. I ‘d do it again in a heart beat.”
