John, Bruce, Alice and Dave giving it some wellie
Two thirds of the band took part in a fund-raising concert at Christ Church in Colliers Wood last night and did an acoustic set of four unaccompanied songs - Pastime, When Winter Walks, The Good Old Way and Shepherd Arise. It's a long time since we've done a gig where we haven't had a PA system and lots of equipment to set up and then take down. It's certainly a nice change to be able to walk on stage and perform without having to worry about any of the techy stuff.
Working up an acoustic set is certainly something we'll develop in the future alongside the full electric set up. With an acoustic option we'll be able to do small gigs and things like house concerts. I certainly won't miss humping equipment about on every occasion when we perform.
