Today I visited Duncan Miller at the Vulcan Cylinder Record Company (www.phonographcylinders.com) to record a song on wax cylinder. It was a fun afternoon, and educational too! It was also great to be able to listen to some of Duncan’s huge collection of phonograph cylinders.
What a fantastic night. Seeing Del and Adam play up close in the intimate atmosphere of the Trades Club was wonderful, and being asked to play the support for them was more than a bit special for this big Del Rey fan! Thanks to Mary at GNUF for making it happen.
On Saturday 25th October I’ll be in Norwich for the Uke East festival (www.uke-east.co.uk), where I’ll be running a fingerpicking workshop (sold out I’m afraid!) and performing along with Sophie Madeleine, The Toots, Artemiss, Liam Capper-Starr, Norwich Ukulele Society and Ben Rouse.
All profits will go to the Musical Keys charity, tickets are £16.
