All hustle and bustle and it’s been a while since I updated here. Been giging a bit which has been nice. Larma Tree festival was great on Saturday..nice moment when the crowd sang me ‘happy birthday’..ah. Worksop the night before was the postponed show, Sounds in the Round in Birmingham, where we just got through without the threatened downpour, and the in store appearances at Borders bookstores in Wales. Visa was granted and today I’m flying out to Canada to play Toronto tomorrow at the start of a month stint across N America. Been doing a bit in the studio as well and other developments including signing with a new concert agency that really might be able to move things on, especially on the festival front. It’s always hard to leave home though. I just dropped kids of at school and it’s so hard to watch them walk away. The news tells the story of a world beyond the one we live in everyday. It’s brutal right now, and there are times when you feel like just staying so close. Will be writing regular updates (he says!) as I travel in the next few weeks.
