Please note the date at Magdeburg Banditt werkstatt on Saturday 15 Sept has been postponed. We are looking to re-schedule it and find another date.
I started out on the road again earlier this month and had a week of private shows in Denmark and north Germany. One was an outdoor show in the garden of a violin maker’s workshop in the centre of old Flensburg. It was remarkably quiet and fortunately, warm too. The acoustics were nice, with the old walls reflecting the sound, until the cathedral bells started up. I stayed with my old friend Thies Köhn and we found time to do some longbow shooting. Thies is a long term archery pal and the best bow maker I know, he also helps book my shows in north Germany, this is his website
The tour proper will now start this Sunday at the lovely old castle in Goseck near Leipzig. This month I will be in eastern Germany and then in October, a long tour that will take me all the way to the south of Germany, and to a few rock clubs too, which I am looking forward to. November I will be in England for a tour. I will also be doing some live radio sessions, watch out here for news of that.
The summer was busier than I expected. I had a great show with The Swedish Kitchen Orchestra at the end of August which reminded me how good they sound. I hope I can bring them to England one day. We played outside at the Café Sigridslund in Sweden, and old school house out in the country. I also had another trip to Denmark to play in Helnaes Galleri and also to give a cello workshop to some students.
It’s been a long hot summer, and a beautiful one but it feels good to be back on the road again with a brand new album, meeting people, seeing how the songs develop live, and coming to new places. I feel lucky that I can play such a variety of venues; castles, churches, rock clubs, festivals, folk clubs, arts centres, house concerts, cafés, art galleries, theatres, violin makers workshops, and breweries. I have also played in a coffin workshop, a motorcycle workshop, a cave and on a schooner. I like my job.
