(Back at work in the morning!)
Now at the end of a fabulous Bailey Sisters weekend - we went on the Manchester to Hathersage Folk Train yesterday, but couldn't get into the coach with the band on the journey out. We ended up entertaining the people in our carriage instead and they didn't seem to mind! The band played a set in a pub in Hathersage (pub served delicious food - we had mushroom, brie and cranberry wellington with loads of veg) and we managed to be in the right carriage on the way back. It was great fun. In the evening we were one of the support slots for Flossie Malavialle at Sale Folk Club - she brought her own PA and did all the sound so was by far the most glamorous sound engineer we've ever had! She was a hoot as always.
Today has been spent at the Royal Exchange Theatre in Manchester - we had a one hour gig there this afternoon, but got there early to do some workshop planning for Festival at the Edge, drink coffee and generally chill. The gig went really well (our first of 2012) and we sold several CDs. It is an amazing space to perform in with fantastic acoustics - it was like singing in a cathedral.
Now I need to plan a French lesson ......
