The title reflects last night -we went to see Show of Hands play in Cheltenham and they finished with one of their anthem songs Cousin Jack (about Cornish Miners) and I think it was one of the most emotional renditions I have heard because they haven’t been able to play live for nearly two years so were relishing every moment of performing to a live audience. Many of their songs resonated with what we all have been through since March 2020.
As a Story Teller I thrive with an audience and although I did things on line during lock down I found it restrictive to how I want to perform and react . I am in a school next week but already my whole school story “Harriet the Hippo” which I have been relearning is off the agenda because now the whole school can’t be together in the Hall. I am very fond of Harriet and would hope to get it published one day. Still able to visit classrooms. However, I am now looking anxiously at my prospective adult gigs (3) in December.
Dan and I (The Two Severn Bores) had a good meeting on Wednesday and we are both now working on writing our songs and stories for our proposed Spring Tour. We have a theme but no title yet-watch this space!
Football tonight live on the TV . Not usually a ground the Mighty Hatters do well at- so fingers crossed our luck may change!
