Virtual Gig 31.5.20

Stan’s Online Showcase: Episode #2 has asked me to record a set for them to air online. I have very happily agreed.

The show kicks off this Sunday 6pm. I’m first up. If you can’t make it, the show will still be available for a while afterwards.

Let me know what you think!! πŸ™‚

Coronavirus

On 14/3/20 it seemed likely that there would be unavoidable disruption to things like gigs and events, as a result of concerns over the spread of Coronavirus. Sure enough, those gigs that I didn’t cancel, got cancelled anyway. These are hard times indeed for self-employed performers, promoters and venues. Many of us, everywhere, are facing hard decisions and significant challenges. Some of us are grieving. I acknowledge that I am very lucky in many respects. If you are reading this, whoever you are, consider yourself *hugged* …

I am currently working on doing live shows, in the most entertaining and audience-focussed way possible. I like live performance, so this is an adjustment for me and I want to do it as well as I can. A few gigs are going to start to filter in, now, so stay posted.

Thank you. Stay safe πŸ™‚
