Tour Blog 2: Nailsea Folk Club

10 October, 2009 | Posted in: journal

Day 2 of the tour began at my house in Exeter where I spent a frantic 2 hours rushing around trying to gather everything together before meeting the tour bus. From thence, myself, sound man Scott and James D set off on a very rainy journey along the M5 to Clevedon where we stopped at Jon Earl’s house to do a filming session for his fantastic website, ‘Songs From The Shed’. The setting for this came as something of a revelation to us. Jon is a music lover who makes films of bands playing acoustic sets, live in his garden shed. The shed itself, is decorated with all manner of bizaare objects which Jon found whilst clearing the shed, including a very sinister looking jack in the box, made out of a cork, various books, and live stock certificates. Mike and James arrived, and we filmed 4 songs for the site. My only regret is that I was in casual dress mode, wearing a stripy jumper which, on camera. gained a strobe like affect and looked as though it was a portal to another universe. Have a look at www.songsfromtheshed.com.

Having said goodbye to Jon and the chickens, we headed for Nailsea Folk Club where we spent the usual few hours setting up, sound checking and arranging the increasingly elaborate merchandise stall. We had a lovely gig at Nailsea, supported by Rowan Cope, and the room had a great, full and friendly atmosphere.
