Well, this was a most unusual one from my point of view, really taking the role of a sort of 'play out' artist following an inspiring talk by the North West MEP, Julie Ward. A really interesting talk and Q and A in these incredibly tumultuous political times.
Technically, there was a somewhat unexpected problem of wearing a Madonna-style headset mic (though not the cone-bra to go with it). I had checked out the venue PA system in a technical meeting earlier in the week and knew that a headset mic was the way we were going with this, however, it wasn't until the actual performance and having to deal with the dynamics in the vocal performance (ie the 'louder and quieter' bits where I would normally move further away from the mic where singing really loudly and so on) where I suddenly had to improvise singing some really high notes that I normally belt out loudly to get them out there, only having to do them relatively quietly.. not easy!
A bit of an unusual one from my point of view, playing out a special talk from the wonderful #LabourParty #MEP for the North West, @julie4nw. An incredibly inspiring talk and person. Please don't miss the video (pic 4) for some of her ad libbed speech. Reminding us what we could be losing, and why we must fight to #remain in the #EU oh and yes, I was wearing the Madonna headset mic! #brexit #SingerSongwriter #guitarist #guitarplayer #acousticguitar #peavey #peaveyamp #peaveyvypyr #headsetmic #madonna

Earlier in the week...
A #techspec meeting with the nice folk at #wistastonmemorialhall for Friday's gig following the talk/Q&A with #LabourParty MEP @julie4nw, who has worked so hard within the EU for women and other repressed groups around the world... after which, I'm playing a few tunes. A bit different for a gig, & should be a really interesting night. It's a @rockforeurope event. #stage #remain #livemusic #bettertogether #nobrexit #singersongwriter #guitarist #tunes #songs #folkrock #altfolk #newsongs #stopbrexit
