Update - September 2018

Hello from a conveniently located Travelodge near Heathrow Airport! In just a few hours we’ll be flying over to the USA for my seven-week US tour.

I realise that this newsletter comes a little soon after the last one, but I wanted to get the word out about my USA and UK tour dates this autumn. I’m in the process of migrating to a new mailing list service that will enable my future newsletters to be targeted geographically, so please do click the link at the bottom of this email to update your info if you’d like to let me know where you are; you can also use the Notes section to let me know what kind of newsletter emails you’d like to receive, and I’ll bear all the info in mind when setting up the new system.

It’ll be my first time touring the new album material in the USA, and I’m very grateful to Margaret Kennedy for loaning me her Gibson Les Paul Studio electric guitar and my cousin Adam for loaning me a floor tom drum for the US tour! Sadly I won’t be touring a keyboard in the US, but I’ve let the venues know that if they have a piano or keyboard available I’d love to play it.

I’m not looking forward to the journey over – I hate flying with a passion – but am very much looking forward to the first gig of the tour this coming Friday, at the Green Wood Coffee House Series in Ann Arbor, Michigan – see the full list of tour dates (including my November-December UK gigs) below, and on both my website and my Facebook page you’ll find full details for all the shows.

Please do share the info on social media and elsewhere – every little bit of extra promotion helps!
