I’m playing fewer gigs in 2013, exercising a somewhat more restrained booking policy and trying only to play venues that I know will work to create a good night. That’s the theory anyway.
Therefore, the offerings are likely to be minimal yet tasty over the coming months. Should you want to know where I’ll next be gigging or to be added to an email list, drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, do get in touch if you’d like me to play a gig in your locality sometime. I’m always up for playing somewhere new and exotic, so give me a shout.
