Part of my gig on the BBC Introducing stage at Lakefest on Sunday was recorded for a session to be broadcast on Andrew Marston’s BBC Introducing in Hereford & Worcester show on the 22nd October (EDIT: this has subsequently been rescheduled for 8 pm Saturday 29th October). There’ll be four songs from the set, plus a short interview with me.
I enjoyed the experience a lot. As a guitarist, I’ve played quite a few festivals in the past, but this is the first time I’ve done it as a solo artist, performing my own songs. There were three other acts on the stage: two really talented vocal duos (Darline & Before She Calls) and a very funky 9-piece band (Population:7). We were all quite different, which I think was good for everyone – in a well-chosen line-up, the contrasts between styles and approaches can highlight every act’s strengths.
