Two Duos Tour - Germany '16 #2
Here's the bucolic setting for the first gig of the tour at the cutely-named Dancing Mole music club hosted by the enthusiastic Christophe Nix.
It got darker and colder as the evening wore on but the warmth of audience compensated and the neighbour's electronic birds (yes, really) stfu as the sun went down and we played a blinder. The audience thought so too.
The harp, percussion, guitar & voices combo is bedding in, providing an interesting backdrop for songs in a range of styles from folk (The Farmer) to pop (Oftentimes) to singer-songwriter (Long Time Gone).
We were in Lontzen, Belgium. It's the German-speaking part. No, I didn't either.
Then we drove for eight and a half hours to Kappeln. It's a big country, Germany.
Playing at Hansy's place tonight - Palette. Thinking of Andy P - she played with me here the first time. A great musician and a great venue.
I'm starting to think this might be my last trip abroad. Hmm...
