Good PT session yesterday. I’m back to base for a couple of weeks and then a very quick transition and taper. I suspect Tangier Road is going to see some action. Fun, getting back into the weight thing, but surprising at how much I’ve lost in terms of how much I can lift. Still, won’t take long to get back, I suspect. At least I’m not aching today.
Busy today and scheduling training is going to be a challenge. Rain has started and is scheduled to pour all day (and night). More importantly, the band has a gig supporting 2014’s folk singer of the year. For a folkie like me, that’s a massive deal and I am very nervous. The rest of the band don’t see it in the same way, which I think is probably a good thing. But, it means I’ve got to get kit together and leave early for soundcheck and then kick around for a couple of hours. Suspect, I will be having a drink or two this evening. I had the job of putting the setlist together for this one and it’s really a choice of standard country style numbers that we do in our sleep or the other more challenging stuff which is more original. I tried to get an even mix, but it’s going to be a tough one, I think. Still, haven’t seen much advertising, suspect we will be outnumbering the audience.
Also discovered a problem with next year’s plans. Brighton is the day before Boston. So, there’s no way that I can run both, logistics just won’t get me there unless I get a private jet (and even then). I’ve paid for Brighton, but could let it go to give me Boston, London, Belfast. Or I could give Boston a miss, which would also be a shame. Still, can’t think about Boston until September, so plenty of time for strategising.
