I wonder if Nancy will stay around.


Finger's crossed  Smiley  Wish I could make both events, but I can't and I'm arguably more musically attuned to the latter anyway.

Just for the record (and because it hasn't been made explicit on the advertising to date I don't think) I checked with Steven and the gig will be wrapped up by 7pm...

Indeed, the poster does say "An afternoon of....", so I guess we ought to have worked that out. Could still be jolly chilly.....

The EP is available to download today at any price you choose (including free).

I think its only available like this today, given its Halloween and all that.

I really like this ep.  Sistinas is the real gem (by a country mile), Come Back gets close, but it's all enjoyable.

The Owl Service have completely passed me by until now. I've just downloaded the latest CD. Excellent. I love discovering new stuff. Smiley

Well I really enjoyed the Alan Lomax show, although in truth it was a bonkers venue for a show in January.  I bailed out before Plinth.  Never has a bus seemed so welcome.  A truly great venue for a June gig.  Outstanding performances all round but special mentions to Nancy Wallace and Long Pike Hollow.  Nothing I didn't like although I don't think the Lost Harbours set quite worked.

Owl Service have posted a couple of Nancy Wallace songs from the Lomax show on their Facebook page.  Lovely stuff, though she looks absolutely frozen.

You can also listen to (and buy) Owl Service’s gig cd.  Quite a change of direction

They're looking for a drummer.  From FB:

We're looking ahead to possibly playing some shows once the new record is finished, so we'd like to recruit a drummer. Ideally you'll be into Brendan Canty, Britt Walford and Todd Trainer, although that's not essential. Perhaps you'll also like the idea of taking traditional English folksong and doing something different/unique with it, but again that's not essential. What is essential is that you're a nice guy/gal, are a solid player, not afraid to take risks, and able to rehearse somewhere between East London and Southend on a weekly basis.
If you fancy it get in touch. Or if you know anyone who might be interested tell them to get in touch.
Thank you,
Steven Owl

I wish that they would have Bill Caddick back. he lives near me and I asked him once why he wasn't back with them. They've never asked me he said. Sad

I imagine the rehearsing between East London and Southend bit probably explains that!

Shurely some mistake? Are you thinking of the Home Service rather than the Owl Service?
