Wasn't Liverpool the European city of culture in recent times ? Nuff said !

Hopefully the good burghers of Bognor Regis will turn out in their hundreds this evening. There will be four of us travelling over from Southampton to help swell the numbers.

It is alledged that King George V final utterance was, Burgher Bognor, or words to that effect  Grin


I wouldn't count on it, there's usually very few people turning up for folky things in Bognor, shame Undecided
Hopefully I'm wrong though.

Interesting twist at the Liverpool gig last night; the crowd was introduced to the band - there were only 23 of us!

Great set though


That's shocking!


Great gig but minimal local advertising doesn't help with crowd numbers. Sad

Axel just asked a very good question about what sort of advertising would help at a gig.

I think this is worth a topic of its own so I've moved the question to a new place:

A very enjoyable gig this evening in Bognor Regis, what a treat to see the chaps performing together again and judging by their on stage banter, they would appear to be having a pretty good time too.
It was a real pleasure to meet and to have a chat with Bognor Talkawhilers Bill (poor Will) Clare & Adam during the interval.
A fairly reasonable turn out, I guess 140 or there abouts.

Excellent night in Bognor (that's not often been said!!) and I was impressed by the turn out. Wonderful to hear Swarb singing again, although when I mentioned this to the man himself during the interval, he quipped "If you can call that singing!".
Good to meet Martin too!

Thank God a decent number of punters turned up in Bognor. I'm still shocked about the 23 in Liverpool! That venue really ought to sort their publicity out. I mean, you can't say that Pete's audience in Coal Aston are all hardcore folkies but every time I go there it's packed out. Must be the nude wrestling that gets 'em in.

Incidentally my wife thinks that quite a few people at Coal Aston didn't realise what a miracle it was that Swarb was there at all, let alone that he was singing. And I'm sure Swarbie ain't going to enlighten them.....

I've popped some video clips from the Coal Aston gig on Youtube.

The Pride Of Kildare      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eu4AVHAq2M8
Seven Keys                 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RXbpYCyQk3Q
One Way Donkey Ride   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=182Kkl86WcM&feature=related

We got permission from the guys to film the gig, hope you like the results.
The sound quality is pretty good through the inboard camera microphone but the only, and by only I mean really unfortunate, snag is that due to the camera position Chris' face remains hidden behind the speaker through all the film. But you can see what he's up to and hear the results very clearly.

All of them suffer the unfortunate problem of Chris' face hidden behind the speaker -
