Thankyou Tump Folk
It was quite a full night with me doing the headline but also Alkevan and Willow & Tool, the excellent Bill Bates and of course Keith Donnelly who played with me on a couple of my songs as well as doing a song of his own.
Here’s what I sang:
Zero Inches on accordion – currently recording at Bill Bates’ studio
Road on piano – newish song not recorded yet
Company Shirt on piano – currently recording
Reckless Blues on accordion and trumpet – recorded on my Live album
Live On Love on Joni-Mitchell-tuned tuned Stonebridge guitar – newish song
Bring Me back My Feathers on banjo featuring Noel Le Long on mandolin – currently recording
Then – more excitement I did ‘raffle’ music with Bill – singing the winning numbers and then Bill sang the parish notices – very fulfilling
Followed by my 2nd set
Paper Girl on keyboard – title track of last studio album
Everybody Loves You on piano – currently recording
Watching The Waves on keyboard – newish song unrecorded
Ready To Love on piano with Keith Donnelly on guitar – recorded on Paper Girl CD
Musicians on JM guitar – newish song on YouTube
Just Come Home on open G Takamine guitar – new song currently recording
Truly Divine on piano with Keith Donnelly doing stupid things – old song but unrecorded
So quite a short couple of sets in folk club terms but a very enjoyable evening and especially nice to see lots of people I knew and ones who’d seen me before at gigs a while back as well a new people to meet.
Everyone in the audience joined in with stuff and were very nice and friendly to me. The room is lovely too as it has great acoustics having a wooden floor and wooden stage to play on.
Thank you again to everyone who did stuff to make the evening work including Garry and Kev who did the PA, and Karen the organiser. I shall look forward to coming again!
