The Shock of the Old was the last show at last weekend’s Aldeburgh Literary Festival – top of the bill, I’d call it – and it went down a storm.
It has changed a bit since its launch in the summer at the Jermyn Street Theatre’s Footprint Festival, and at the moment this feels like an on-the-road tour before we ‘come in’ and hit the West End – although, in my case, ‘coming in’ will be going to a local folk club or theatre.
Some songs have been cut, others added. The chat has been tightened up. Now all I need are some books for 2022, and that’s shaping up well at the moment.
In the meantime, I’ll be heading to the Hadleigh Folk and Acoustic Club on 1st October. It’s one of the friendliest and most musically eclectic clubs around and I’m really looking forward to that.
My next free livestream Monday Escape show will be at 8pm (UK time) on Monday, 4th October. All are welcome to join us on Facebook, Twitter or YouTube.
I’ll be keeping you updated on future gigs and recordings here and on my Facebook page.
See you soon and let’s all try to keep cheerful….
