Day 6 - European Fall Tour

I am well and truly grateful for a day off today to catch up on some much needed rest and to get some behind the scenes logistics taken care of.

Yesterday afternoon we performed at a blues festival at the Pop Podium de Flux in Zaandam, The Netherlands. We played a power-hour Rock'n'Roll set and had a brilliant gig. Judith Renkema was unavailable to perform the show so our good friend Bas Nuiver stepped in and brought some new energy to the band. It was our fourth show with Bas filling in for Judith and its always great to have him with us on the road.

After the show I received some nice comments about the new songs that we played in the set and with the evening free, we drove back to the band house in Tilburg to eat a bit of dinner, drink some wine and jump into bed early to get some well deserved rest.

Day 5 - European Fall Tour

Day five of the European Fall Tour was all about an acoustic guitars, stories and songwriting workshops in Viernheim, Germany.

Belle Roscoe and I spent two hours in the afternoon giving a songwriting workshop to some local artists who where interested in hearing about our songwriting process. It was a lovely afternoon and I must admit, hearing how everyone else goes about their songwriting was as inspiring to me as it hopefully was for them.

Later that evening we played to wonderful listening audience. It was one of those nights where you could hear a pin drop in the room. Nights like these are an absolute joy as a musician!

So far so good, the tour is going great. Tomorrow we are off to Zaandam, The Netherlands for a Jaimi Faulkner Band show.
