A right old mix of music from California, New Jersey, New York and
British Columbia then across the Atlantic for a couple of tracks
from good old Blighty. By the skin of our teeth we just managed to
avoid a session on the spoons from my chum Rob Martin who just
popped up on Skype showing off his new iMac. Perhaps I should get
him to play along with a track sometime … then we'll need a voting
system too so we can ensure that it never happens again!
Fortunately there has been yet more real music happening this week
after the Foy Vance show at the Arts Centre in Norwich on Tuesday
we had another trip for Nordgarden and others at a new venue,
Grapevine at the Bedford, also in Norwich. www.myspace.com/grapewvine4music
Nordgarden came back here and stayed over after the gig. What a
great guy to have around the place. Musical all the way through, he
woke up singing and we recorded a session here in the barn on
Thursday morning before heading off (right) for the London train to
make his way to Stansted airport and back to Oslo. He's due back in
the UK in a couple of weeks so I'll let you know about dates and
we'll play something from the session then.
I've been in London since Monday heady a mix of meeting up with
friends and some fairly high-pressure work so probably not a lot
from me this time but plenty of interesting music.

you enjoy it as well.
