Not fancying our chances of enticing any audience type people to sit outside in the coolness and rain, we luckily were welcomed in the nearby Half Moon cafe (www.halfmooncafe.co.uk). It was strange to sing in a curved space, some listeners round the corners, as it were, but we had a good time rattling through just about every song we could muster, some with Damian, our relatively "newy", and some he sat out.
We risked a world premiere of his arrangement of a Leon Rosselson song, Bus Story, which is nearly performance ready! A good time was had by all, and on we went the very next day to a giglet at the wonderful Square Chapel in Halifax, experiencing their monthly music evening ('Square Up' - visit www.squarechapel.co.uk). There were 15 minute performance slots. We let our remaining hair down and got a really good reaction from the audience, and very much enjoyed being in the audience to appreciate some excellent musicians/singers. Last night I had a super evening with Moornotes community choir, singing at the Grassington Fringe Festival. This is all addictive, roll on the next gig!
