Powerdown at the Powerstation

I played at The Powerstation in Chiswick last month, a genuine acoustic affair without a mic or amplifier in sight, and I enjoyed everything about it. A beautiful venue (a real architectural gem) oddly hidden behind a bus depot. There is an enormous feature window overlooking the bus terminus, but it’s oddly serene.  Nice people, and a great ambience and I would play there again at the drop of a hat. If you came along, I hope that you enjoyed it as much as I did.

Anybody who knows me will tell you that I’m a man of few words. If  I feel strongly about something I will probably try and write a song about it, but I have been told that perhaps I should share a bit more with the audience  – so I will.

There’s quite a few things happening in the Bath area at the moment – I’m looking forward to the  Larkhall Festival from 1st to 3rd May. I’m biased as I live there, but where else could you find a village square with a theatre, a delicatessan, a wine tasting shop, three take aways  and half a dozen pubs.  I’m looking forward to playing on Sunday 2nd at 4 o’clock (the very civilised Antiques Roadshow slot). Lots going on, and the fun goes on late into the night. Incidentaly I’m going to see Bill Smarme at The Rondo (Larkhalls theatre) – he’s a kind of west country John Shuttleworth, very accomplished, a ladies man with leopard skin acoustic guitar. Might also pop down to Komedia to see The songs of Nick Drake (sounds vaguely interesting)
