I’ll be accompanying the Bluesfather, Roger Emmerson, at Henry’s this Saturday (30th). It’ll be the first outing for us as a duo since the wonderful Nick Trepka left for India, so please do come along and see how we cope without him. I might even attempt a bass solo. 🙂
We should also be playing again on the 13th July as part of a special “Blue Friday” that Roger is organising. It’ll be great to hear some of the Blue Wednesday Forest Cafe favorites playing in a venue with a decent p.a. 🙂
Rehearsals with Sagrenti are coming along nicely although we still need to find a singer. I’m also having coming up with more ideas for tweaking songs for the AlKandAlC album (never know, we might actually get a decent EP/demo together by the end of the year), getting better at my Warr guitar and writing not very good lyrics 🙂
Hopefully see you Saturday.

After a long silence, there’s some new music on the AlKandAlC site, a new song from Al K (who’s currently still in California). Head over to the AlKandAlC site if you want to have a listen. Or wait until September when we’ll hopefully be gigging again :p
I also have a gig coming up at the end of this month: Roger and I are returning to Henry’s on the 30th. Sadly Nick Trepka won’t be joining us (as he’s now living down South, having just returned from an awe inspiring trip round India). Ahmed Remally will be stepping into Nick’s shoes on lead guitar, so hopefully it will be a good gig 🙂
On a more work related note, if any of my friends in Edinburgh read this (somebody must be reading this as there are now 200+ hits), would you like to do a little experiment I’m carrying out as part of my PhD? It would involve going to Heriot-Watt. I’ll buy you a coffee in return! 🙂
And finally, Richard Thompson’s new album, Sweet Warrior, is excellent. So go buy it if you like that kind of thing.
