“Hi Martin here,
Well the tour is well underway now and we are simply having a ball, everyone pulling their weight and totally in tune!
Our support act Davy Cowan has gone down brilliant every night and along with Anna Lavigne (merchandise) we are having such fun on the road.
Big thanks to Andrew Bailey too for setting up the tour.
The band have been so tight right from kick off with such a joy visiting Ireland, Waterford’s beautiful festival along with visiting friends in Wexford and Leap, a reuniting with many great Irish friends!
Bayswater Road Tour
Also much fun was had taking in BBC Scotland’s Quay Sessions in Glasgow, which are currently being hosted on BBC iPlayer!, then down to the happiest city in England, Sheffield’s wonderful Lantern Theatre, taking in 2 x beautiful and intimate evenings.
The third section was full of character, soaking up an energetic Cavern Club Liverpool, Glasgow’s Oran Mor where we hooked up with Bobby Bluebell, then back down to Bury Met for a gorgeous gig in this beautifully refurbished theatre!
We are looking forward to the next league kicking off with Clarke’s on Lindsay Street, Dundee, where we will see our old friend Kit Clarke in. Dundee is one of the finest cities in Scotland if you ask me, a city that holds so many great memories for us.
The next day we hop on the ferry from Ardrossan to Arran playing Corrie Village hall for our old friend Vicki Hudson!
After that it's a hop to London on Saturday night to guest for Tom Robinson’s BBC6 show (very excited to see Tom again, one of the best) then it's a Sunday evening gig in Brighton’s Concorde 2, right down on the sea front!
To say we are excited is an understatement. Kate Stephenson, John Steel and Christopher Mordey are at the top of their game right now, this band is just brilliant.
Hope you have caught some of it or just about to!
PS: Further bulletins soon x"
