A day to Bristol 12th August 2012

I can’t believe it’s been best part of 2 years since I played a gig in Bristol. So having a free day last Sunday I contacted my friend Mark Venus whom promotes a lot of acoustic gigs in Bristol and arranged a couple of shows for a Sunday afternoon. Mike wanted to tag along for the ride so he came along with his Djembe.

The first gig was at the Hatchet Pub located by the 02 Academy, it’s a great pub and its usually the place I head to for food before a gig or if I happen to be in Bristol, they also have quite a few good alternative and 80s nights there too sometimes.
We went on at about 5pm and the set went like this.
Fortunes Light
Broken Child
Jessica
Feel
Love is a Spirit
To Behold
Mike did some great percussion of feel giving it a great groove, that song is developing all the time from the simple original acoustic song that it was to start with.  We had some great feedback from the audience which is always greatly appreciated.
After this gig we popped over to Fishpond’s to play the Cross hands, a few friends came to this one as they lived nearby, and we did the same set just in a slightly different order. It was a much bigger place, so lacked the intimacy of the Hatchet still In some ways we played a lot better as we were a bit more into it second time round.

So there it was, a fun couple of shows then it was a mad dash back to Devon in time to see The Who on the Olympics. Sadly there is no photos of these gigs.
