Another quickie! Do two quickies make a longie?
Don't answer that!
Thank you so much for coming on Friday to the 12th FolkintheBarn gig. The standard continues, I thought he was a brilliant musician. That blind Willie Johnson slide thing he did was awesome, as was his playing throughout. However, I don't feel familiar enough with the man and his music to be able to do a review. I'm sure some or at least one of you must be able and hopefully willing to give it a try. I would be really very grateful and it would be nice to have something to send to the local paper. You're reward for the winning effort would be a free ticket to any forthcoming FITB gig, so please help me out if you have the time. - A review has now been received.
I am in the process of re-negotiating terms with the Cathedral venue which is why I have been unable to book any further gigs for the time being. However a Summer/Autumn programme for the Kingston Barn will be announced shortly.
