What a lovely night last night. Got a call mid afternoon from pal Karine to come sing in a show I was going to see anyway! ‘Way to Blue – the songs of Nick Drake’ is touring just now, the Usher Hall in Edinburgh last night. One of the performers Robyn Hitchcock had hurt his back so was unable to come. Okay, so I’m not Robyn, but I think it went well. Nick’s songs are very close to my heart, having seeped into my subconsious from a very early age. And I was thankful to sit at the side of the stage and sing along when not on stage, soaking up the warmth of Robert Kirby’s string arrangements, marvelling at Krystle Warren’s extraordinary versatility. And then listen to tales of the unexpected from the legendary producer Joe Boyd at the aftershow party. A night to remember. They have one more show 18th Oct (I’m not in it, but I know what I’m missing!)here
