I've got lots going on in the next couple of weeks. Here's an update on all of my upcoming events.
First, on Thursday the 24th I'll be in London auditioning for a busking permit for the London underground. This only happens once every 2 years so I was happy to get an audition. After the audition I won't know if I will get a license until October.
This weekend I'll be playing at the Asylum Steampunk festival in Lincoln with the Lonely Mr Punch on Saturday. On Sunday I'll be playing solo at the Band Festival in Lincoln hosted by the Prince of Wales Inn and the Lion and Snake from 13:50 to 14:20.
Next week I’ll be a guest with another band I'm in, Croagh Patrick, on BBC Lincolnshire's 'The Music With Chris Berrow' radio show on Wednesday August 30th, 2017. The show starts at 6:00pm. We'll be chatting and playing live on the show. If I can share a copy of the show after it's been recorded, it'll appear in my music section. On Thursday the 31st, I'll be with Croagh Patrick again at our monthly gig at the Millers Cafe, Bar, and Brasserie in Sleaford from 19:30.
Next weekend, Sept. 2nd and 3rd, I'll be playing at the Sutton on Trent Festival www.suttonfestival.co.uk all weekend. On Saturday I'll be at the Church venue from 14:00-16:00 and Sunday on the main stage from 14:00-16:00. I'll potentially be playing with a new guitarist for some of my songs for the first time ever. Will keep you updated on that. I'll also most likely be busking around the festival at various times.
I hope to see some of you at these events if you're in the neighborhood!
