Hi all – as usual a very belated update, but had an absolute blast at Sidmouth. It was the lightest workload for a while with only four gigs in three days, compared to the fifteen or so engagements of previous years, but it was well received and great to catch up with so many people. Particular thanks to all those who came along and took the time to talk to me and the other band members – it is always brilliant to know what you thought!
I spent a week in deepest darkest Devon on the run up to Sidmouth writing and rehearsing with The Albion Band – this was a real privilege – great to have a little bit of time with my good friends, taking time out of their very busy schedules. It was like the very best days of being in a garage band in the old days. Each day we’d take a little time to write, then over to the studio in an afternoon or evening for jamming and recording. I reckon we put about a half dozen things down on ‘tape’ for the future.
Next week I’m off to Broadstairs with the Morris On Band, and on Tuesday I’m doing a solo gig as well. I hope to see some of you at Boradstairs, Towersey, Wallingford, Swanage or Bromyard before the summer is out!
