How lucky am I? Every gig this year so far has been utterly different and thoroughly enjoyable. Starting with Hedleys shed two weekends ago to a maximum crowd of thirty good people with the bonus of Dave (we are not worthy) Burland in the audience and a superb debut gig from a brand new band, the Dovetail Trio.
Next up was a new sunday afternoon venture in beautiful Bedale in the Yorkshire Dales with a capacity crowd and an excellent opening set from the talented Sunjay Brayne. More sunday afternoon shows please!
A pleasant surprise last friday in the theatre in Brixham with another sell out crowd and a fine support from local heroes Maggie Duffy and Mike Weed.
Finally, last night at The Orange Tree in Baldock was a lovely experience with yet another great support, this time from Freds House whose very distinct, country tinged harmonies and brilliantly tight musicianship when down a storm at the folk club. They’ll storm it when they eventually get into the festival circuit.
