Q

Just out of the purest of curiosity, Have you ever done gigs in Devon? or to expand on that would you ever do home town gigs?

I've played at Glastonbury and a few other festivals nearby - Sunrise, Wingmakers, Buddhafield, Big Green - and I used to have a residency at Tribe Of Frog in Bristol when I lived up near there, but no, most of my gigs seem to be at least a plane ride away.

Round here it's all farmers, artisan potters, shepherds and carpenters and they like their fiddles, mandolins and pipes. Occasionally somebody will organise a jam session in a yurt in somebody's field and they'll all sit around on hay bales with their wooden instruments, playing 15th century smuggling songs and going 'woo!' and 'yee-haw' every so often.

I've been tempted to turn up with my laptop and my Atom speaker and join in on my virtual MS-20 but I know they'd all stare at me like I'd turned up to a bar mitzvah with a side of bacon.
