On the following night, I supported the excellent Americana duo, The Worry Dolls at OPEN Norwich. Fresh from their recent AMA UK Award nomination for best song, it was lovely hearing the songs from their debut album “Go Get Gone” live with an accomplished full band. Also playing were the fabulous local band Morganway doing a special stripped down set which included fantastically layered and textured songs from their upcoming debut album, and a moving Tom Petty dedication and cover of “Southern Accents.”
“An easy and engaging manner between songs and wonderfully evocative, melancholic, wistful stories within them.” Thanks so much to Richard Shashamané for this great review of my set at OPEN in his excellent Norwich music blog which also includes his superb photos: https://norwichblog.com/2017/
Here’s a live video from the night, performing a cover of Lucinda Williams “Still I Long For Your Kiss”. Love singing this moving song: https://youtu.be/1p9iMz5gHek
I also really enjoyed performing at the John Peel Centre for Creative Arts in Stowmarket for the first time, supporting highly acclaimed singer-songwriter Tom McRae. It was a really busy night and Tom had the audience spellbound as usual. It was so kind of him to ask me to support him on the last date of his current tour.

I love seeing rock photography and there is currently a very cool punk photography exhibition, Punk+, at The Gallery on St Giles Norwich. On until November 25th it features the work of Sheila Rock and includes the inimitable Debbie Harry, Johnny Rotten, The Clash and The Cure. More information about the exhibition is on their website: http://www.thegallerynorfolk.
Following on from my recent Future Radio People’s Playlist show, where I played and talked about my favourite songs, I’m really looking forward to being the Tuesday Guest on BBC Radio Norfolk next Tuesday, 21st November, between 6-7pm. I will be chatting to Matthew Gudgin about my career journey so far and all-time favourite music. Just going to be hard to whittle down my choices to only 6 favourite songs! The show link is here and it will also be repeated on the following Sunday 1pm to 2pm.
