Bury St Edmunds – Thursday 11th May

We are lucky enough to have a half hour slot at Bury Folk Collective‘s Wired Folk Night at the Hunter Club, Bury St Edmunds this Thursday.

The evening starts at 7.30 and will cost you £3.00 to get in – it will be worth it!

We’ve been a little low-key about this one, for personal reasons, but are hugely glad to confirm that we will be there, and we hope you will be too.

A New Session! Starting this Sunday!

spreadeagleThe Spread Eagle in Ipswich is starting a new folk/acoustic session on the third Sunday afternoon of the month and we’ve somehow found ourselves involved! The beer is superb, the food is delicious and all it needs now is for you to come along, sing a song, tell a story or play a tune. The plan is for an easy-going session so we will (initially, at least) be asking people to come in, get a beer, find a seat and, if they want to, propose themselves as performers. To keep the atmosphere relaxed there will be a list (on a blackboard where everyone can see it) which will tell you when you’re on and everyone else who they are listening to. That’s the plan so far, but only time will tell …

 

Who needs microphones, anyway?

… although it would have been nice to have had them.

Folk At The Boat was interrupted by what we can only describe as a monsoon and, as the stage had been set up outside, there followed a short debate on What To Do Next. The suggestion that Triangle should perform on the stage at one end of the courtyard while their audience huddled in the pub at the other end was greeted with – shall we say – some negativity on the part of the band. The compromise position was that we would perform in the pub (cue a certain amount of furniture removal) but unplugged.

So we did! A full hour’s set with not an electrical device in sight. And (we are told) we were audible throughout the bar. Very, very hard work, and our voices are feeling distinctly fragile now, but huge thanks to the pub, the organisers and the audience!

First draft complete. Now for the live action!

Well, the first (and, in some cases, second) mixes of the album are complete and we’re listening carefully to everything to see what needs doing. However, while you’re waiting, there are opportunities to hear us in person. The first is at Folk at the Boat, at the Steamboat, Ipswich, on Saturday 11th June. Les Barker and Waxies Dargle are the headliners – full details here – and we’re on at 7 pm. Tickets are £10.00 and we can promise you a fantastic day of music.

What a marvellous day!

Saturday in leafy Warwickshire, and participating in a terrific little festival with Gerry Colvin, Marion Fleetwood, Red Shoes, Celandine, Fred’s House, Daniel Nestlerode … And … And … Oh, my brain’s gone numb! We were thrilled not only to perform in our own right but also to be three-fifths of the Red Shoes backing singers. As we say, “Instant backing vocals, just add beer!” Can we do it again next year, pretty, pretty please?IMG_0767
