I know, I’m doing the flashback thing again! The thing is, I’d love to post about everything on the same day it happens but realistically I’m far too tired and stupid after a gig to be able to write anything coherent. Instead, I’ll write about the weekend three weeks after it happened…
After nearly two years without “real” gigs, I had three in a single weekend! Friday 29th April saw the first David Wright and Carys “Beyond the Airwaves” concert. This was both live and livestreamed which was a new challenge. I know how to perform to an audience, and how to play to a camera, but both at the same time..? Anyway, you can judge for yourself how it went because the whole concert is available on youtube here.
Sunday 1st May: a new festival, a new county
– at least as far as performing goes! We drove up to Filey Folk Festival, where I played in Bonhomme’s bar and met up with 2 good friends I hadn’t seen for over 20 years. It was a long day but really good to see them again and to play at a new festival. Here’s hoping I get invited back next year!
Finally, on Monday 2nd May Celandine played Spring Wood Day in Ipswich. After a plague-enforced absence (like with so many festivals) it was great to be back at one of our regular annual spots, and to visit the bluebells in the woods as well!
