Next Sunday 13th May I am playing at The Boogaloo in Highgate with a brilliant guest musician visiting from out of town. The venue is lovely and quite a celeb hangout by all accounts, possibly due to that fact that Shane MacGowan from The Pogues lived above it for years!
The promoter is Folklore who have a reputation for putting on a great show so I am sure the other acts will be a treat.
I am on at 5.30pm and there is music all afternoon from 3.30pm. Do come down if you are in the area. The Boogaloo, 312 Archway Road, Highgate, N6 5AT
I am up in Northumberland at the moment visiting my Gran, who luckily for me is a silver surfer with a nice shiny new pc on broadband and skype next to the window by the sea. Which means I can tell you about my gig this Sunday and then go and mooch down by the picture-postcard harbour and perfect my windswept look….
The Arcola Theatre in Dalston have been kind enough to let me take over their foyer this coming Sunday for a little mini-launch of my new cd titled ‘I Love Leonard Cohen’.
Music will start at 6pm with a set from the wonderful Madelaine Hart (http://www.myspace.com/madelainehart) – I have just finished recording her ace debut cd and she has contributed some lovely backing vocals to ‘I Love Leonard Cohen’.
I will be on around 7pm and will be joined by Iain and Geri, wielding banjo, dulcimer, bass, percussion toys, violin and other things with strings… we will be done by 8pm so it is not too late for a school night or a cross London trip!
You can download the mp3 of ‘I Love Leonard Cohen’ from this site – please practice the outro backing vocals so we can all have a nice big sing-a-long on sunday 🙂
