Hey everyone!! If you’ve come hear because you heard me play on Radio 2 this morning I would like to say THANKKKK YOUUUU SOOOO MUCHHHHHH!!!!!!! It all stemmed from Chris’s awesome week-long music festival he held at his pub last week… I played on Monday and Friday, alongside the one and only Seasick Steve! It was brilliant! Chris then invited a few of us to come and play on his show this morning to recreate the open mic night vibe last week, and what fun we had! The idea of an open mic MORNING is actually rather quirky!
I was playing at Monmouth Festival last night and had about 4 hours sleep, so I truly meant every lyric when I sang “So Stop the World” – “I’m fighting through that traffic half asleep under my make up!” It was lovely to see Mike Bushell there doing the news. Mike used my music a lot for his BBC Breakfast sports updates, and it’s so great to have his support!! His book “Bushell’s Best Bits” is amazing!
After everyone performed Chris then asked us whether we’d like to come and play at Carfest… WOAH! So this weekend I’ll be playing Carfest North on Saturday AND Sunday. I can’t WAIT!!!!
Here’s the link to listen back to the open mic section on this morning’s show.
Good times ahead!
I also want to say a HUGE thank you to everyone who texted and tweeted words of encouragement. It meant SO MUCH to me. Thanks to Sam Rommer for being there with me at the open mic’s last week and today, too. WOW. I am feeling TRULY FORTUNATE right now.
