The sharp eyed amongst you will notice I’m playing a new violin! One of the joys of being a violin maker is that occasionally you get to make yourself one. I loved the old one, but I fancied a bit of a change – here she is – I’ve never named my instruments, so I guess she’ll remain as “the violin”.
She’s going to be busy, three gigs last week (with her debut on The Golden Hinde), two festivals this weekend and busy on the lead-up to Glastonbury and continuing so thereafter!!
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!
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!
