It's not often a gig MC announces you onstage with the added info "these are wild creatures, so if one poos on you, consider it a sign of good luck"!
Such was the case yesterday at our return housegig at Westmere Farm, near Spurn Point, East Yorkshire, in a barn where swallows (martins?) darted about overhead the entire gig!
A sell-out concert in aid of Farm Africa, very touched that the support band 'Morning Dew' did a version of my "Ghosts of a Thousand Fishermen" in their set, so I got them up to sing it with us in our set.

Sad to say goodbye last night to the wonderful Kardomah94 in Hull (it closes August 1st), one of our favourite venues, which we've played at least 5 times (pic from last year's gig there).
But what a night, a private hire/"housegig", to celebrate Pam Clark's retirement; Les & I joined not only by The Men of a Certain Age (Martin Peirson & Peter Robinson) but also "The Mint Imperials" on backing vocals (Pam herself, Julie Harris & Sue). Thanks for doing the sound, Mikey Scott.
Now, just a hop skip and a jump down the road to Kilnsea, a return visit to Andrew & Susan Well's farm, for a "housegig" in their barn this afternoon (pic 2).

Wonderful time at London Green Note last night. thanks to all who came, and the great band we had (who'd not all met before until soundcheck!), Les Glover, Dr Nick, Jo Bushell, Micaela Haslam, Will Priestman & Adrian Harris...special thanks to BBC/BT Sports head rugby honcho Nick Mullins for doing the 'pilot's intro' to Box 202.
PS we had such fun doing our busking at Morrison's Camden Car Park yesterday (live-streamed by Lisa Jane), we might do an afternoon flash-gig there, next time we play Camden!

Album cover for The Last mad Surge of Youth by Henry Priestman

“…compares favourably to Ray Davies. These are heart-warming self-assured songs from a man confidently declaring that he’s not done yet”

8/10

Uncut Magazine

“Clever crafted songwriting…full of proper tunes & grown-up words…a clever, wily,  literate writer”

****

R2 Magazine

“A lovingly crafted album… his fourth act might be his best”

****

Classic Pop Magazine

It’s all bound by Priestman’s songwriterly craft: some things age cannot whither”
