Fundraising series finished

Well, that felt epic! A live stream show every Saturday night through August. I had never done live stream shows before and it was a bit of an experiment. I’ve had some lovely feedback and those of you who’ve been in touch certainly seem to have enjoyed it. Since I was based at home and it was never going to come close to simulating the proper gig experience, my idea was to get a bit silly and treat it more as TV, sacrificing perfection in sound quality in aid of providing a slightly off the wall performance experience. There were the inevitable tech issues, but we did quite well overall. Additionally, I managed to raise £100 for the UK charity Help Musicians (Musicians Benevolent Fund), so all in a good cause 🙂

Thank you to everyone who participated, donated and helped push those viewing figures up. The most brilliant thing about it, for me, was reconnecting with you all. I’m very much looking forward to seeing you all again in person – fingers crossed for 2021!!
