The Livestream Adventure

It’s been a bit of a learning curve, but we’re getting there…….. When we did #1 Livestream we had trouble connecting to YouTube and so it only went out on Facebook….. For #2 we had an unexpected turn of events when Facebook decided that would be a good moment to update something and the parts of the account you need to livestream became unavailable for an hour! So #2 was only live on YouTube!

Here’s the recording of the livestream:

Enjoying performing again!

Well, in the last couple of weeks we have played at Broadstairs Folk Week, Bridport Folk Festival and Purbeck Valley Folk Festival – what a change!! We’ve been pretty careful about social contact and taken sensible precautions, but what a joy to be out playing again. We’ve updated our gig page so that it’s in a calendar format (although you can switch to “agenda” view should you so desire) and this will allow us to easily add in new dates as things pop up!

Hope to see you at one of our gigs, cheers for now!

Wimborne Folk Festival Livestream

Did a livestream for Wimborne Folk Festival, Really hoping this time next year we’ll all be able to be there in person.

We set up at one end of my violin making workshop and laid in an ethernet cable from the house – all went well!

The new normal #2

VegfestUK invited us to produce a video for their online festival in August, so we did!
Recorded separately in our own luthiery workshops, but put together as a mini-concert for you to enjoy. We each played the whole session through all in one take, complete with interactions, so it is as live as you can get while being apart!

The new normal……

If you can’t beat them, join them!
We’ve done our best to produce a “live” performance with both of us performing a short “gig” in one take. It was actually rather good fun to do and I think we’ll be doing some more!

How it was…..

Remember going out, and gigs and stuff? Here’s a little reminder of a lovely gig we did at Rosslyn Court in Margate, it was quiet as “Storm Dennis” was blowin’ in… little did we realise what was to blow in a few weeks later!!

Have a gig on us!

In the total absence of live gigs just at the moment, we thought we’d try to bring a few smiles by putting out a video of a gig we did just over a year ago… warts and all…  at The Albatros, an old Dutch cargo vessel, moored in Wells-next-the-Sea. It was a two and a half hour gig, which I’ve edited down, so – as they say in the adverts “some sequences are shortened”! I’ve tried hard to keep the feel of the gig, so there are a few blemishes and I hope it still feels live! Enjoy, and hope to see you all soonest!
