Strangely it doesn't seem to be showing anywhere else

Tickets in hand for Alan Doyle (ex Great Big Sea)  at the Sony Theater in February. This is the third attempt at this gig due to Covid. Even better is that Chris Trapper will be opening, and Iím hoping they will sing some of the GBS songs Chris wrote for them

I'd love to see Alan Doyle live. I have very fond memories of the one time I saw Great Big Sea in concert, and his solo records have kept up the quality of the band's work. Don't know Chris Trapper beyond his co-writes on a couple of GBS records. Any recommendations?

It's being erroneously advertised in Ambleside as 3/4 of the 70's band featuring Roy and John.  Tut, tut.

I am really excited because I havenít managed to see him since GBS split. As to Chris Trapper he is a true songsmith and all his solo albums are great. Iíd probably start with his work as singer and songwriter in The Push Stars, who still get together occasionally. Paint The Town is my favorite

Hack Poets Guild - booked March at More Music - Morecambe, featuring Lisa Knapp, Marry Waterson seems like another interesting project.

Tickets booked for Fairport's Southport gig. I haven't been to The Atkinson before but it looks like a nice venue.

I see there's a folk festival on there the weekend of the 11th Feb with the Gigspanner Big Band and Katie Spencer on the bill. Would like to go but I think we're off up to Glasgow that weekend.

Just noticed that The Sadies are playing locally in a couple of weeks. I'm aware that Dallas Good died last year but it'll be great to finally catch a show, regardless.

Also just booked for Fairport, in Harrogate. Given the concert is only a month or so away, ticket sales seem to be worryingly sparse. Had my pick of the entire venue, practically.

Just booked:

Pink Floyd Laser Spectacular, Paramount Theater, Austin - January 26!

Al Stewart, 3Ten Live, Austin - March 3!

I'm not a huge fan of 3Ten Live (small club, standing room only), but it's the only venue left in town appropriate for a folk artist, since the One World Theater closed down. I suppose the Cactus Cafe counts as well, though it is somewhat smaller. It will be my first Al Stewart show! Hopefully he'll sign a CD for me?

I've seen Al several times, I'm sure he'll be up for some CD signings. He genuinely seems to love his audience.

Small club, standing room only is my idea of an ideal gig.

It's the "standing" part that gets to me (although I have incrementally improved my physical condition over the last several years, in the words of the great Pete Townshend, time is passing). Smiley

After nearly having to crawl back to the tram home after the Peatbog Faries in the summer and almost passing out at the Saw Doctors last December I have had to accept that, at nearly 70, mosh pits and standing only gigs are not for me any more.

I draw the line at mosh pits. Never could stand all that shoving about.
