It has been a while since my last post, during which time a big change happened in my life when my wife and I decided to move from Bristol to Wells in Somerset, first renting and then eventually buying a bungalow! Wells is brilliantly located for the Somerset music scene, being close to Glastonbury, Pilton, Priddy, Wookey Hole, Burnham-on-Sea and of course Bristol and Bath.
This year in particular has been a big one for myself and the band. Following performances earlier in the year at the Ritz in Burnham, the Cider & Cheese Fayre at the Ring O Bells in Compton Martin, the Hawthorns in Glasto and Bar Brunel in ‘Bridgy’, plus numerous appearances at the Old Duke in Bristol, things really took off when we opened on the main stage for the Priddy Folk Festival, swiftly followed by headlining sets at the Bristol Harbour Festival (Grain Barge stage), Avonmouth Music Festival and the Wookey Hole Music Festival. We then played the small but perfect Priston Festival (hope to be back there on the main stage next year!) and we’re about to headline the Chandos Road Street Party back in Bristol.
Not only that, but we were a featured artist in the new and upcoming ‘Live at the Orchard’ series of films, in which you will be able to see a 20 – 30 min web episode of us playing live in a recording studio and also giving a bit of insight during an interview.
There’s yet more to come this year, including another appearance at the Old Duke and the Tobacco Factory in Bristol. Do check out the ‘gigs’ page of the website and hope to see you there! Ant
