Well, the last three days have brought three very different gigs!
It's not often that I play on three consecutive days, as my singing technique isn't exactly sympathetic to my vocal chords. Needless to say, I'm far from classically trained!
A mainly quiet (but lively finishing) first appearance at the beautiful Ye Olde Bull Ring Tavern, the oldest pub in Ludlow on Thursday evening was followed by a very chilled-out garden gig on Friday. This second one of the week was held in the garden of my father-in-law's landscape architects business in the centre of Shrewsbury. This low-key slot was just what the doctor ordered to enable me to 'give it the beans' at The Sun Inn, Welshampton.
Gig number three one was another garden party / barbecue, to celebrate the 3rd anniversary of the relaunched pub, and it was an absolute pleasure to play! A lovely little crowd who really got into it made it so much fun for me! Lots of requests, people keen to chat about music, and even some familiar faces. All-in-all, this is just what I hope for when going to play a gig.
I'm definitely looking forward to getting back to The Sun Inn again in the future. A cracking pub!
Now it's time for a little break, after which I'll be refreshed and ready to hit the ground running on Friday July 31st at Oak Live in Welshpool!
