Lucky me! Not only does Anna Howie play and sing in Nowhere To Hide, but I get to play in her band too! Last night we were at The Grey Lady, Tunbridge Wells, and on Thursday we’re playing at New Music At The Dorset in East Grinstead.
Yesterday we had the full band which also has Roger Nunn on drums and Martin Smith on bass, and we played a set of Anna’s rather wonderful songs, plus a cover (Dakota). The lovely Sharon Blaikie joined us for two of them. What a great evening! a warm, friendly crowd, great acts (Mair Murphy and Infra Red), fab sound and everything held together as always by Paul Dunton. Paul runs these sessions at the Grey Lady an unbelievable three times A WEEK, as well as running shows in many other venues and fronting his own band – the Paul Dunton Orchestra.
We had a ball! Thank you Paul and everyone who was there.
Now we’re looking forward to Thursday, which will be just Anna and me. Another songwriting showcase, and always a real treat to play at. Come along, say hi, and discover what you missed yesterday!
It’s upstairs at The Dorset Arms, High Street, East Grinstead RH19 3DE. Music starts around 8.00pm
