It’s been a few weeks since my gig at Henry’s Cellar Bar with The Occasional Flickers and Thank You So Nice (TYSN).
Here’s the board outside the venue on the night in question…
I’ve no idea who Dr. No is, but he sounds like a fun dude. ’60s, ska, rock steady and early reggae? All in one night? Phew!
Anyway, back to the matter at hand. The gig on the 9th of March was great fun. I have to say a huge thank you to TYSN for inviting me to come and play.
I also want to say a massive thanks to my special guests who were kind enough to join me on stage; Simon Herron, Sam Bradley and Kelagh O’Neill.
Kelagh provided vocals on my most recent LP ‘Like Lovers‘ but took on the challenge of learning parts for 2 new songs. Here we are duetting on ‘Roll’ in a very different version to the way it appears on ‘Like Lovers’…
Just for comparison’s sake, here’s ‘Roll’ as it appears on the LP…
In further gig related news, I’ve been invited to headline The Listening Room in The Blue Blazer pub, Edinburgh on Sunday June 30th at 8pm.
I previously headlined The Listening Room last year and it was great fun.
For those who aren’t familiar with the concept, The Listening Room is completely unplugged. That is, no mics, wires or nonsense. Just performer and audience in the same room, sharing an evening.
The night starts at 7pm, with several artists performing up to 3 of their own compositions. Just FYI, the standard is intimidatingly high! You will not regret coming along early. The night is rounded off by the featured performer who goes on around 8pm.
Thank you so much to everyone who came along to gig at Henry’s. I’d be so pleased if you wanted to come and see me again (or for the first time!) at The Listening Room on June 30th
