Devon Sproule's kind of a big deal in Britain

As reported on the Hook music blog this morning, Charlottesville songwriter Devon Sproule made an appearance on the BBC program(me) Later...with Jools Holland back in February during her European tour. To give you an idea of what a coup this was for Sproule, recent guests on this late night institution hosted by the former keyboardist from Squeeze have included such platinum-sellers as James Taylor, Radiohead, Mary J. Blige, Joe Cocker, Patti Smith, Wilco, the White Stripes, and some guy named Paul McCartney. Accompanied by husband Paul Curreri on guitar, Sproule performed two originals: "Old Virginia Block," and "Stop By Anytime."
