This weekend I played my local arts centre (The Maltings) in a night of folk music – part of a new ‘First Friday’ series of concerts.

It’s a great place to play, with fantastic acoustics and a really intimate atmosphere.

Cameras are discouraged during performances, so here are three (rather fuzzy, I am afraid) sneakily taken shots…

Then came a couple of sets from King Alfred’s Cakes – note my fabulous new shirt!:

The night also featured a post-interlude set from the improvised world music jazz trio of Batkin/Roberts/Andrews:

All in all it was  great night and we look forward to doing it again sometime!
