Set List from Bridlington Folk Club 21 January 2014
Lovely evening at The Telegraph Inn. It's very rare these days that I do a solo gig so fun to do this one. Nice to see Kate Bramley from Jez Lowe's Bad Pennies there, along with Edwina Hayes in the audience!!

I had a great day in the studio yesterday with fellow Real to Reel band member Rachael Hales. We recorded 13 tracks in about 3 hours, not bad going!! Watch this space!
It was good to hear some of my new songs recorded professionally and not just on my crappy home recorder!!
Had a trip to Bellingham last night to do a support spot at the Baa Club in Bellingham. Main act Philip Henry & Hannah Martin were superb. Some fantastic Dobro playing going on there! Go see them on their travels.
Set list: Rory's Still / All Just Talk (Clive Gregson) / Jigs - Mick's Milk Float & One Eyed Goat / The Lookout / Turn to the Sea / Taking the Long Road Home.
Really enjoyed my short spot and my trip up north (although driving back across the moors was slightly reminiscent of the opening of An American Werewolf in London as the fog and drizzle came down).
[And the night before I saw Admiral Fallow at The Cluny - how cultured am I?]
Last two days have included two gigs. Firstly with Rachael and Lynn from Real to Reel at the Baltic Gallery in Newcastle. A nice pleasant hour spent entertaining a conference party of anesthetists.
Then last night was a 'stadium' gig at Carlisle Folk n Blues (held at Carlisle United FC's Brunton park). I played the support spot to Boo Hewerdine (and Fin McArdle). Really enjoyed the night.
Set List. Rory's Still / Across the Northern Fells / Jack Haggerty / Father Mallory's Dance / Jig set (Mick's Milk Float & the One Eyed Goat) / Turn to the Sea / Taking the Long Road Home.
Next gig Bellingham at end of month.
PS Did I mention that I ran this year's Great North Run in 1 hour 57 minutes! Dead proud of that.
