Nottingham calling!

Ayup!

I’ll be playing a wee acoustic set on Sunday at The Chameleon Cafe in Nottingham.

The gig is free, but any donations to the city’s Children’s Cancer ward are greatly appreciated. I’ll be on about 4pm.

The Travelling Band Project

Ayup.

I am involved with another Arts Council project. This time, it’s called The Travelling Band Project.

Here’s a brief explanation.

Five musicians, from all different musical backgrounds and genres, are put together and sent on the road across the county of Derbyshire.

Day one, we arrive in a town, and spend the day hanging out with the locals. We hear their stories, the history of the area, and that afternoon, we write a song about those people and their experiences. That evening we perform a set of our own individual songs, as well as our musical attempt to do them and their town justice.

Day two, repeat and so on all the way across the county.

On the final day, we will bring back all the songs and experiences, and perform them to the people of Derby.

Here are the dates and venues we have booked in so far…

Saturday 10th March @ No. 25, Belper.

Friday 6th April @ The Latch Lifter, Ilkeston.

Saturday 7th April @ The Featherstar, Wirksworth.

Friday 13th April @ Artisan, Ashbourne.

Saturday 5th May @ The Fishpond, Matlock.

Thursday 10th May @ Ripley’s Little Ale House, Ripley.

Thursday 31st May @ Baby People Studios, Derby (Afternoon).

Thursday 31st May @ The Maypole, Derby (Evening).

AFA Charity Match

Big thanks to John Daly and the Awareness For Autism family, for letting me be part of their charity event.

Unfortunately my on the field performance ended after 6 minutes, when my groin tore while running on to a through ball from Alan Smith.

Still, it was lovely to be part of the event, and to perform some tunes at the after party.

Next year hopefully, if invited, I will have more of an impact on the field.
