Posted 22 Sep 2014Musefest 2014 came to an end with a wonderful evening at Church Street Town House - great conversation, great food, and more great music!
Musefest 2014 pics - Church Street
P.S. We'll post videos when we're back in the U.S.
Brilliant photos from everyone!
Sharon - I had to look twice at the picture of Ron at the Town House - thought that inscription above his head must have been cut and paste - it's soooo appropriate!!
Will post some pics myself soon,

...yikes, those late nights...
... have meddled with my medals - or, was I in a 'Private Universe' all of my own ;-)
Great to have a jam yesterday Len!
Posted 21 Sep 2014What a brilliant couple of days in Stratford-Upon-Avon
Magnificent job on the organizing Alistair - everything ran like clock work and you even managed an upgrade to our original 'snug' venue to a very spacious meeting room which was just right for performing eating, drinking and chatting.
Great to see everybody in the flesh and hear a fantastic range of original songs and learn about all things songwriting from such an enthusiastic and talented group of people.
Managed a little busking Saturday morning near the bard's birthplace...
Tragically (pun intended), only seemed to be a hit with little old ladies ("that was lovely my dear") and toddlers dragging mummy over to see what the strange man was doing.
Have to say that performing to seasoned musers was a hell of a lot more daunting than my (first-time) busking.
Special mention should go to Sharon's husband Bill - for putting up with all the concentrated songwriter's chatter and taking photo opportunities at key moments - you deserve a medal sir! Looking forward to seeing your photos and videos.
Roll-on the next one!
Posted 14 Sep 2014There's a wonderful new study out suggesting that we don't really become forgetful as we get older. It's just that our minds are so full of information we've gained over time that it sometimes takes longer to retrieve particular bits of information.
Well, my brain has become so stuffed that I sometimes forget words that I myself have written. Which is why I'll have lyric sheets with me.
Anyone bringing a music stand?
No problem Sharon - I can bring a stand.
Think the explanation for song writers forgetting their own lyrics is much simpler than that - all those re-writes can confuse the memory as to which is the latest one under the stress of a performance
Posted 14 Sep 2014I'm going to check out the local street musicians - there's a busking ("Busk Stop") map of the town here.
The "Busk Stops" pretty much make up a natural walking tour of the whole town and theaters.
Might even take my travel guitar along and play a few tunes if any of the "Stops" are empty Friday afternoon / Saturday morning - should be fun and make some extra memories of the weekend ......... and ........... maybe even a little drinking money
