Purbeck Musician at Purbeck Valley Folk Festival

August 27th, 2015

Sounds about right!

 
 

Top festival that Purbeck Valley Folk Festival. A great place to test out some new acoustic fingerstyle arrangements. Many in the audience will be some of my good friends and it will be a joy to catch up with them.

 
 

I will be playing this Friday 28 Aug at 17:40 – 18:20 in the Long Barn. The festival is being held at a different location this year, so we will all be very interested to check out the new Purbeck Valley Farmhouse venue. Big up to Catherine Burke for all her hard work in organising everything.

Ask me what I like about Studland Music Festival

August 15th, 2015

Obviously the music…

 

The great location on The Isle of Purbeck, the vast array of beers, the huge audience…

 

…and getting to hang out with my great music friend, Jim Etherington. Pippa at The Bankes Arms invites us to play on the same bill just so we can catch up.

Thomas Tripp new stage and sound system works

August 15th, 2015

Very impressed with the set up!

Easy sound system to work with, plenty of space, much better to engage with the audience from a proper stage and the lighting helps too.

 

Ali and Simon have certainly made The Thomas Tripp into a proper live music venue in Christchurch; plus I get to catch up with many of my loyal music mates.

Outdoor gig at The Boot Inn

 

This cosy friendly live music gem of a pub is tucked away opposite the old town hall behind the harbour in the oldest part of town, near the marina. Performing there on Saturday 23rd May 2015 at 5.30pm, outside in the seating area.

I always enjoy performing at The Boot; the local and visiting audience really appreciates live singer songwriter acoustic music.

 

We are informed it is Weymouth’s oldest and most haunted public house.

Live Music at The Boot Inn

There is live music at the pub every Tuesday night.

Meadrow Acoustic Festival Farncombe Surrey 2015

April 5th, 2015

The Three Lions Charity Festival

 
the festival is a celebration of acoustic music
 

There will be 14 acts on 2 stages alternating throughout the day, one featuring bands and the other featuring solo artists.

 

The festival is a celebration of acoustic music of all types on Sunday 3 May Noon to 11pm.

I’ll be doing my singer songwriter set on the solo stage of course, at 7.50 and it will be a great chance to catch up with some of my great music mates, like Bemis, who are on stage just before me. Sarah and Graham, the landlords at The Three Lions, always put on a good show and Farncombe has a rich heritage in live music events and it is certainly one of my favourite pubs to perform at.

 

All proceeds will go to The Three Lions chosen charity for 2015, Farncombe-based Skillway.
