Birmingham and Manchester

Friday, June 17th, 2005

Hello again! I’m now up in Manchester, after playing a gig in Birmingham with Lee and Gavin. The gig went really well and I really enjoyed the other music, which included poetry and songs from Joe Williams plus some really inspired vibraphone playing from a guy called Julian.

We played a similar set to the gig at the Exeter Phoenix, with a few extras thrown in!

I’m having a good time up in Manchester, staying with my brother Alex and visiting some friends. Went out to a good reggae night, in the Arches bar, Hulme. Staying in Manchester one more night before heading down to the Exeter Phoenix for the State of the Arts music day – which features music industry seminars, plus live music from Mark Chadwick (of the Levellers.
Looks like great value, with tons of music and info for a tenner.
