The Totnes Gig – tonight

Sunday, May 9th, 2010

We’re currently driving from Exeter to Totnes, for the last day of rehearsals before the gig tonight. It was sounding really nice yesterday. Basic premise is to get a load of songwriters together and then work on one new song for each songwriter, over a weekend. Then we’re all playing on each other’s songs.

A lot of the arrangements involve vocal harmonies, but there’s a cellist, two keyboards, guitars and djembe between us, so lots of scope for doing stuff.

The gig starts at 7.30pm tonight (Sunday, 9th May) and it’s £4 on the door. The venue is the Ariel Centre, Totnes.

Ripon Beer Festival 2010

Wednesday, May 5th, 2010

I really enjoyed playing the Ripon Beer Festival on Monday. Just heard from the organisers that they raised a total of £6,068.00, which is great news. There was some really good music — and lots of great beer. Enjoyed going out for a quick curry afterwards with the Roosters before rushing back to do the All FM Unsigned show in Manchester!

Next year’s beer festival is Monday, 2nd May 2011…

Baa Bar on Tuesday

Saturday, May 1st, 2010

Hello! There’s an exciting gig at Baa Bar, Fallowfield on Tuesday. It’s being put on by Silent Sara, in aid of the Red Cross.

The lineup is looking really good – it features seven acts, including Karima Francis, Kristyna Myles, Glyn Bailey, Robin Mukherjee, Risa Hall and Pavor Nocturnus. I’ll be playing a couple of songs too.

I think entry is by donation, 3 or 4 quid. Should be a really nice night. Things kick off promptly at 8pm…
