Thread Name: Nic Jones on stage again????
Subject: RE: Nic Jones on stage again????
It's not up to me.
Nic and Julia have the recordings, It's their call now.
Respect for the quality of the recordings mainly goes to Ian and the sound crew at the Ham.
Trying to sound check that amount of people in 30 minutes was (as the stage manager said) "It's like herding cats!"
We said to all of the artists. "Remember which Mic you sang into and which DI you plugged into, because we haven't got a hope to fix it during the gig!"
And bugger me....They all did! Astonishing!
When a decision is made, I promise I will let people know.
PS The other choice quote was from Mr Simpson...
"For 40 years Martin Carthy and Nic Jones have been telling me that I play too many notes..............Fuck 'em!!!"
