My thanks to everyone who came to the Listening Room gig at the Blue Blazer last night, for such a warm reception to what was a pretty experimental set. Despite some anxieties about the voice holding out and remembering chords in the Guitar Craft tuning, and remembering words for the covers, the energy and sense of fun in the audience made it a memorable night for me and the songs seemed to take on some life.
So, again, thanks!
