Just in case anyone has tickets for tonight's show in Kendal and hasn't been contacted by the box office, Ralph is unwell so the show has been moved to next Wednesday 2nd Oct. Refunds are available if you can't make the new date.



Got tix for tomorrow in Newark, hope he will be well enough, having to wait and see.

Get well soon Ralph.

The theatre phoned me up this morning, very quickly once they knew he had to postpone,
 I will either get to the next date or have a refund.

Such a shame for Ralph, hope he will soon be well again.
His health is far more important than the gigs.

Absolutely!

Newark have NOT yet confirmed a replacement date. I have an email from them in the last hour or so refuting that date is set. They will be contacting ticket holders once they have agreed a date.

Unfortunately I wasn't able to make it to the Kendal gig last night due to my own health problems but MrsB and a friend went along. There were quite alot of empty seats which was a shame seeing as how the original date had been sold out.

Ralph is still fighting off the lurgy and he said the show was only possible thanks to Lemsip and paracetamol. He played one set with no interval which included 2 or 3 songs from the new album. So it sounds like he wasn't at his best and he forgot the words to one song. He said he had hoped for a day off before the Irish dates this weekend.

At least I now have a copy of Hill of Beans having previously been listening to it on Spotify. Nice recorders on the opening track by Tony Visconti. He add some to Hugh Cornwell's Beyond Elysian Fields album which he produced back in 2004.

Back on form after his awful chext infection on Saturday in ad of Prostate Cancer charity - annual gigs put on by Mr Kate Rusby - Damien O'Kane - in Penistone.

90 min set performed seated - support one Eliza Carthy & Saul Rose - a gig of this quality doesn't come along often.

I was there!
What a fun night it was!

Ralph was joined by so many friends and musicians that I hardly dare to try to remember them all, but here goes:
Danny Thompson, Graham Preskett, Dave Pegg, Gerry Conway, Neill MacColl, Frank Gallagher, Chris Parkinson, Jessica Morgan (daughter of Mary Hopkin and Tony Visconti - what a divine voice!), John Sheehan, Fergal Keane, Adrian Dunbar, Barbara Dickson, The Purcell Singers, and the Southbank Sinfonia.

The set list was as follows (with none, some or all of the above):

First Song
Close Shave
River Rising
Sweet Mystery
Bridge of Sighs
I don't think about you
After Rain
Oxbow Lakes
Sometimes I wish I could pray
Tequila Sunset
Summer girls
Naomi
The Irish girl
From Clare to here
Kenny the Kangaroo
Hill of Beans
A Bill Broonzy Ragtime number
Gamel Dansk
Clear Water
Moon in June and a Cajun tune
Streets of London (with Barbara Dickson, choir, sinfonia and audience)

Encores:-
Zimmerman Blues
West 4th Street and Jones

Indeed! Looked out for you and others, hung around the merch table in case I saw a Talkawhiler but no-one. It's such a huge venue so not surprising!  Roll Eyes

The evening was just beautiful, the sound was perfect, the guests incredibly talented, great choice of old and very old material. Danny Thompson made me laugh out loud with his Kenny the Kangaroo story. The reading of Clare to Here, pure poetry, read so beautifully by Furgal Keane and sung so movingly by Adrian Dunbar. It made me realise even more that Ralph's words without the music are pure poetry. The encore of course, West 4th Street and Jones is such a quality song. Enjoyed some songs from the Hill of Beans album too. Its growing on me!  Wink
