Suffet Visiting the UK in May 2012 (22) RE: Visiting the UK in May 2012 14 Dec 10

Greetings from a cold New York City!

As 2010, the year of Awesome English Adventure II, draws to a close, Anne Price and I can see how Awesome Adventure III is shaping up, eevn though it is a year and a half away. These are our current plans.

Wednesday, 9 May 2012: We and our spouses fly from JFK to LHR, arriving in the evening and checking into a hotel near Russell Square, London.

Thursday, 10 May 2012: We rest and recover, reactivate our UK mobile phones, purchase train tickets.

Friday, 11 May 2012: We have a performance tentatively lined up at a folk club in a London suburb. We won't give the name until the date has been confirmed, but it is a venue we have appeared at twice before.

Saturday, 12 May 2012: We are inquiring about a performance in London that evening. If we do not get it we will leave for Cornwall that morning, taking the train to Truro and renting a car when we get there. Otherwise we will leave Sunday morning. We have a house to stay in Cornwall for up to a week if we so desire, but we will also likely stay a day or two with Kathy.

Sunday-Friday, 13-18 May 2012: We will try to visit one or more folk clubs in Cornwall. We have made inquiries and sent sample CDs. If you are a club organizer and have not yet heard from us, please send me an e-mail at and we will send you a press kit and sample CD right away.

Saturday, 19 May 2012: We return to London. There is a chance that we will have a performance that evening if it did not already happen on 12 May.

Sunday, 20 May 2012: Anne and I will be performing at the FAB Club in Grays, Essex. This has already been confirmed.

Monday-Tuesday, 21-22 May 2012: We are making inquiries with folk clubs in and about London.

Wednesday, 23 May 2012: Anne flies back home to New York with her husband Wayne. My wife Marilyn and I might return to New York at the same time, or we might stay in the UK through the following weekend and return on Monday or Tuesday, 28 or 29 May.

Note to club organizers: We do not want to run afoul of the law, so we cannot accept any personal payment for our performances. However, any money that would have otherwise gone to use can be accepted as a donation to our home club, the New York Pinewoods Folk Music Club, which is a not-for-profit corporation. You are therefore welcome to publicize our performances as fraternal club-to-club visits.

Have a good holiday season and a happy and peaceful New Year, and we shall see you in 2012. I can taste the chicken masala already!
