Yes, we’ve been away for a while, but we haven’t been idle! We’ve been taking out to develop new music and exciting new directions. Don’t worry – we are still us! As I (Mim) write this, winter 2018-19 is leaving in a huff, slamming the door rudely as he goes. Not to be outdone, Spring, rude girl, is kicking the door with her crocus-embroidered Docs as she barges in. So, er, it’s March, and it’s a bit windy. After a year closeted with our new material, we dared to put our heads over the parapet on air with our great friend Roger Pettitt in his “Roots and Shoots” show on 107.5 (Monday evenings live, 7pm – 9pm). And now we are setting forth again. Join us at Rushmere St Andrew church, on Mothering Sunday (31st) from 3pm. It’s Triangle live and in concert!
After several false alarms, the band is finally pregnant with The Next Album! Work started in earnest yesterday and a live recording engineer has been located!Â There is even a set list!Â If all goes well, we expect to deliver in mid-2016.Â Now, we are going to do our exercises, take our vitamin supplements, have our afternoon naps and get our friends to start knitting……….
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 …
Goodness, is it that long since we posted? That scourge of bands, Real Life, has been intruding again – but there has been outbreak of practices recently. and we have also started putting a set list together for the Knitted Character Folk Festival!
OK, I’ve very nervously logged in (as the band technophobe) so, er, hallo everybody, this is posh isn’t it?
Huge cheers for Sue for the immense amount of work she has put in to updating the website over the last few weeks. And today, I am pleased to report that my admin login works, so that’s another little bit falling into place!
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 …
