What has made this particular booking important was the presence of Mal's children and grandchildren. Nik could be excused for feeling a little nervous playing to Mal's family, especially when his "grandchildren" demanded pocket money back-dated to the 70's!
Touring is great craic especially when you get to see the country and a wide range of venues, and indeed audiences. And we're going to write a book on all the hotels and digs we've stayed in during this present tour. This week we've stayed at Margaret's lovely house on Thu and an Ibis hotel last night. Margaret even excelled by producing Linda McCartney bangers for breakfast - I wonder if Linda ever cooked for Mal back in the day.
Anyway, touring over for this week. Next week we're in Bristol (11th), Stroud (12th), Exeter (13th) and Northwich (14th). If anyone reading this is around those town, do come and see us.
