Well, we’ve had a brief taster session in the studio with our new sound engineer and we’ve all decided that we like each other and the studio enough to go ahead with the album. We’ve ironed out (or made plans to iron out) a few of the practical problems which made themselves known … like the fact that Sue spits out consonants as if she was trying to get rid of them, and the fact that, whatever we do, a single music stand will never do for all three of us if we are actually looking at the music on it. And slippers and beer are studio essentials!
Lots of rehearsal now!
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?
Piracy seems to have taken over our lives recently – not that we are complaining – but it does mean that Triangle gigs are, at the moment, rather few and far between. However, you lucky folk, you have the chance to see us live and in person at …
And the annual festive session at the Dove Street Inn will be with us again on Sunday 14th December – 2 p.m until we all run out of puff!
After a somewhat hectic summer of weddings, choral singing and appearing in our pirate disguises as 60% of Captain Morgan’s Rum Do we’re getting back into rehearsing and performing mode with our Triangle hats on. You may have missed our brief appearance, busking before the Trianon Music Group‘s concert in September, but we will be appearing at the Oxjam Festival in Bury St Edmunds on Saturday, 25th October (we’re on at about 2.30 pm) and we will also be at Loughton Folk Club‘s annual Protest Night on Sunday, 2nd November in aid of Amnesty International. This is always a good, thought-provoking evening which also manages to be great fun.
We will be running our Seasonal Session at the Dove Street Inn on Sunday 14th December, so, whether you plan to celebrate Yule, Christmas, Chanukah or any other mid-winter festival (or none at all) please come along. We usually get under way at around 2 pm until, until … well, until we run out of steam, really, which could be anything between 5 pm and chucking-out time.
An afternoon spent singing, changing our mind about set lists, eating and drinking tea. That’ll be a Triangle Sunday, then! And this evening, a visit to the Mulberry Tree session.
With only one or two tweaks remaining to put pages into the right directory – we’re live!
… I think I’ve got as far as I can, so I think I’d better let the other two have aÂ peruse of my work and, when they’re satisfied, tell Phil that it’s Time To Go Live!!
I can’t help feeling that we are very, very nearly at the point of being able to publish …
