Hello all, sorry I haven’t been in for ages, and don’t really have an excuse..
I had an extraordinary experience yesterday, when my friend Tessa Grobel asked me to introduce Jon Snow (Baritone) and Alan Rusbridger (Piano) at the launch of ‘Music for Offices” at Christchurch Spitalfields. It’s an initiative to get people in offices to learn instruments and start choirs or whatever..
For non-Brits I should explain, Jon Snow is the Channel 4 News Anchor, and quite simply one of the finest journalists this country has ever produced, as well as just being a dude. Alan Rusbridger is editor of The Guardian, the left-liberal broadsheet, and my newspaper of choice for 30 years.
I’ve got a couple of sort-of gigs coming up, in Leeds and Manchester at PMT Music shops, which is as a thank you to Mark Gooday and the good people at Ashdown Engineering, whose Amps I couldn’t live without.
Then of course July is my 21 date Australian onslaught…Really looking forwards to that, it’s the first real tour I’ve ever done under my own name..
Hope all good with everyone.
