Folk-rock guitarist Steve Gunn was back in New York City on Friday night with a sold-out show in front of his hometown fans at Bowery Ballroom. The show on Friday was just the second performance of his 2019 winter tour in promotion of his brand new studio album, The Unseen In Between. Gunn had played a trio of more-intimate shows at Brooklyn’s Union Pool back in the fall to work out some of his new material, and spent nearly the entire 11-song set on Friday continuing to explore and familiarize his fans with the songs from The Unseen In Between in wonderful fashion.“This is the third show playing these tunes, we’re working it out,” and honest Gunn told the sold-out venue in regards to some of the new songs which made up the majority of his set. Gunn has amassed an entire songbook of brilliant original material over the last decade, but spent much of Friday focusing on the new material. In typical Gunn fashion, the guitarist calmly arrived on the stage in a casual, blue-collar look to start the show with “Wildwood”, a song from his 2014 Way Out Weather LP. Next came “Vagabond“, one of the lively pre-release singles from The Unseen, followed by two other new tunes in “Chance” and “Lightning Field”. It took Gunn three songs into the set to finally step onto his overdrive pedal, much to the delight of his jam fans in the room on Friday.Related: Steve Gunn Shares Folky Covers Of The Misfits & Michael ChapmanGunn and his co-guitarist for the evening were locked in sync by the time they got to “Lightning Field”, weaving in and around one another with their picking-styled riff lines. Gunn gave fans in attendance a treat by welcoming longtime Bob Dylan bassist, Tony Garnier, to the stage to join him on stand-up bass beginning with “New Moon” and “Luciano”. The full band left the stage during “Stonehurst Cowboy“, and Gunn and Garnier spent the next few minutes playing a duet version of the semi-biographical song about Gunn’s late father.One of the key elements of Gunn’s style of performing and recording which players will surely appreciate, is his emphasis on putting tone over anything else. Gunn even kept his metal fingerpicks on while playing some of the softer tunes on acoustic guitar throughout the show in hopes of giving the timbre of his instruments a sharp and firm personality with each strum.The first real jam of the night came towards the end of his set during “New Familiar” and “Paranoid”, which featured Gunn turning those clean tones of his into a mesmerizing dust storm of distortion and fuzz. The show came to a fantastic end with “Morning Is Mended” and the fan-favorite folk ballad, “Way Out Weather”.Gunn’s winter tour continues on Saturday with a show at Union Transfer in Philadelphia. He’ll continue to tour in promotion of the new album throughout the winter and into the spring months. Fans can head over to his website for ticket and tour info.

2018 is going to be a big year for Crystal Cruises, particularly in Australia. For the first time its two ocean ships, Crystal Serenity and Crystal Symphony, will come together in Sydney. The newly refurbished ships will overnight in the harbour on 17 February, and celebrate President & CEO Edie Rodriguez’s vision for four world cruises, finally being realised in the illustrious year.To mark the occasion, Karen Christiansen, Senior Vice President, Managing Director, Australia and New Zealand, from Crystal Cruises’ nascent Sydney office, whisked members of the media away on a Sydney Seaplanes jaunt from Rose Bay to hatted restaurant, Cottage Point Inn, on Thursday 24 August. The Crystal Adventures excursion, called ‘Flightseeing Adventure & Riverside Lunch’, was an example of what guests could enjoy during their Sydney sojourn.The unique expedition, taking in Ku-Ring-Gai National Park and the landmarks of Sydney Harbour, must be pre-reserved and is available on Crystal Serenity‘s ‘Pacific Sojourn’ and ‘The Great Barrier Reef & Beyond’ itineraries, and Crystal Symphony‘s ‘Southern Australia & Tasmania’ and ‘New Zealand Explorer’.Guests enjoyed superb nouvelle Australian cuisine, including raw wild kingfish, stretched curd with truffle and jerusalem artichoke, and squid and pippies for entrée and mirror dory, duck breast and wagyu rump cap for main, accompanied by Latta Vino ‘Quartz Bianco’ Sauvignon Blanc 2016, Hentley Farm ‘Poppy’ White Field Blend 2016, Happs ‘I Series’ Pinot Noir 2014 and Mars Needs Shiraz 2014.During the lunch, Karen shared the exciting developments that Crystal has announced since she was first approached by Edie in June last year to open a Sydney office.Within a week, Edie had announced a thrilling brand expansion plan under owner, Genting. These have included the arrival of Crystal River Cruises and Crystal Yacht Cruises, the building of a dedicated expedition yacht, Crystal Endeavor, the launch of Crystal AirCruises (with the B777 Crystal Skye christened at last Virtuoso Travel Week), and the multi-million-dollar refits of both Crystal Serenity and Crystal Symphony, the most awarded luxury ships in the world.OceanSymphony is set to debut her revamped look in October, including new penthouse suites, open seating in the main dining room and free Wi-Fi.RiverKaren recently went to Vienna for her first river experience aboard Crystal Mozart, the widest river ship on the Danube (leading to the widest range of dining options). The ship is the only one in the Crystal portfolio not to have been built by scratch, and she has recently been joined by Crystal Bach, the first of four purpose-built river ships planned for the next few years. Crystal Mahler is set to arrive later this year, followed by Crystal Debussy and Crystal Ravel. All suite categories feature butler service, with technology integrated into the experience, including panoramic windows for the effect of a balcony and a pop-up bar on the Vista Deck.YachtThe 62-passenger Crystal Esprit yacht is currently deployed in the West Indies, where her onboard submarine is proving a popular toy. Esprit is also frequently chartered, and will be spending part of next year in the Adriatic between Venice and Dubrovnik.Crystal Endeavor, set to arrive by the end of 2019, will be a 200-passenger polar-rated vessel designed for exploration, fully equipped with all the toys, including a helicopter.AirCrystal Skye is the latest addition to the Crystal family, a Boeing 777 reconfigured to seat only eight passengers. Interest in this new mode of Crystal travelling is already quite strong in the Australian market. A French chef caters for the passengers while travelling, creating a ‘shoreside’ experience with locally sourced ingredients in each destination, including a mid-air high tea. The onboard dining room seats 28 at a time, with the option to dine in the comfort of your large, luxurious, lie-flat seat. “They have not forgotten a thing,” Karen says, citing the inclusions of an onboard bar, noise-cancelling Bose headphones and indulgent amenity kits.
