None at present.
Sunday 14th April 2013:
Nothing much to report on my own music front. I played a rather
lovely Folk Threads night at The Briton's Protection in Manchester
on Friday night. The theme was 'Women' and I chose to sing The
Mike Waterson song 'A Stitch in Time' (via Martin Carthy's
version) and Richard Thompson's 'Beeswing', my favourite song of
all time, and suited to so many different occasions. It was the
first time I've played out on solo guitar and voice in a long time
and my nerves were wracked. However, the audience was lovely and
one must get back on the horse at some point so I hope to get my
playing and singing up to speed and do some solo gigs again soon.
In bass playing news... The Woodbine and Ivy band will be heading
back into the studio at the end of May for album 2 recording
session part 2 which I'm very much looking forward to. We've got
some exciting new (and new old) songs that will form the 2nd album
and we're working, again, with some very wonderful people. I'll
keep you updated. Last Harbour are also in the writing and
recording stage of a new album. Some excellent tunes and
interesting new ideas. I have no idea when either of these will be
available but I will let you know as soon as they're ready.
