Having said last year I would do no more live gigs I did leave myself a small get out clause. If someone asked me to do something I really fancied then I would climb back on the horse and do it. Well someone has. So three gigs coming up shortly. Jim at the Cross Keys refused to take no for an answer and I could not say no to my friend Pete Ryder when he asked me to be part of his birthday celebration and Armley Mills have kindly asked me again to put on the Songs from the Mills concert for their Wool Festival.
April 18th The Cross Keys Uppermill, Oldham.
May 4th Pete Ryder and Friends, The White Lion Swinton.
With Phil Hare. Myself and Phil helping Pete celebrate his 70 birthday, no doubt with lots of other Friends.
June 2nd Armley Mills Festival. 0113 3783173
The gigs below will be for the foreseeable future my last live performances. Not a sudden decision; one I have been working towards for a few years and for a number of diverse reasons. My teaching and studio stuff mentioned on the other parts of the site will continue and who knows what the future may bring in term of live stuff. I did my first paid gig in 1974, it's been a fantastic ride ever since but time for a change. I have met and worked with many fantastic people in particular Dave Moss and Saskia Tomkins who both toured with me during the 90s and early 2000s Any changes I will post here for the moment though hope to see you at the Topic on the 20th July.
