Well, that's it; I am now on the road. I am currently in Beverley - in the library to be precise (they're marked on the A-Z maps; another reason to use maps rather than the dreaded satnav....).
I didn't get time to post this before I left, but here's my current itinerary of promotional spots/bookings:
Started on Monday 21st October at Beverley. Tonight,(Wed. 23rd, I'm in Cottingham. tomorrow, Thurs. 23rd, The Cutty Wren, Skelton.
Then I'm appearing at Gainsborough Festival, 24th/25th. There's a half-hour spot on Friday night and one on Saturday afternoon. Then I have to dash over to Manchester for a wedding reception with Flaxmere Band.
Sunday 26th: back up North, loaded with cash (ha-ha-ha!), and a floor spot on Sunday at Guisborough (Rugby Club). Monday 27th is The Forrester's Folk Club (Coatham Mundeville). Tuesday 28th, Croxdale, and Wednesday 29th Birtley.
I haven't organised any more, but might be doing some more spots in the Durham/Teesside area before heading back across country. I've ended up with a load of stuff in the van which I wasn't intending to have with me; It just ended up that way in the chaos. So I need to sort that out. apart from anything else, there's always the chance that, at this time of the year, I'll need to sleep in the back of the van (or The Tour Bus, as I like to call it). I can't get in there at the moment without taking half the stuff out. On Monday, having had numerous hold-ups during the day, I got here so late that I ended up sleeping in the front, which was not what you might call comfortable. (I could call it a few things, but it would probably get the thread closed and me banished from Mudcat). Not sure what's happening during the first week or so in November, but I'm at the Pack Horse in Loughborough on 21st, so I'll be doing promo stuff in the Midlands during the week before.
See you roud the houses, as Sean Cannon once said.
