It started on Saturday afternoon with a 30-minute slot at Welshpool's excellent Annual Charity Event, in which I never really felt like I'd got going. The same couldn't be said for the next two gigs, however!
Saturday evening brought my first performance in the lovely town of Montgomery. This was a joint party for a 30-year and 50-year wedding anniversary, and Sharon & Rob Farmer were perfect hosts! It was a real pleasure to be able to play a long set for a really fun crowd who really got into the spirit of things. Lots of dancing ensued, and when I eventually headed for home it was on a high!
On Sunday, it was time to find out whether the voice would hold up for a first visit to the Miners Arms in Priest Weston.
This country pub is an absolute belter! In a lovely location amongst the hills slap-bang on the Mid Wales / Shropshire border, I was expecting a quiet early evening gig. How wrong could I be?
A surprisingly busy bar, with very lively and extremely warm and friendly clientele made for a really fun gig, and another long one too! Great to see a few familiar faces, as some friends and neighbours decided to make an afternoon of it, for which I'm always really grateful!
I thoroughly recommend a trip out to the Miners Arms, and will definitely be dropping in with the family very soon. Signs are that there could be a return gig in the future too!
