Well last week was quite a week. Started with a lovely gig at Bingley First Monday Folk at Chip n Ern, then packing in rehearsal time ready for the weekend and the always enjoyable music while you dine session at The Lemon Tree Cafe on Thursday evening. Friday it was Hellifield Village Hall, which was an absolute joy. Saturday we had an all day song-writing workshop with the fabulous Boo Hewerdine. it was a wonderfully friendly, engaging and productive day – two new Mockingbirds songs!! It was so good to have time to focus. We really enjoyed being in a room full of such talent and hearing the songs other people at the workshop had written – all different and all inspiring. Saturday evening we opened for Boo H at the Lemon Tree and he kindly lent us his song ‘Dragonflies’ which we love singing. Boo, as always, was fantastic – great songs, wry humour and so very generous with his talent. Great to see Mark Dennis get his guitar out and play a song with Boo. Excellent stuff! Sunday was special. Me and Cath aka Mockingbirds had a day with Boo to work through our recently written songs and re-work some older ones. Just a joy from beginning to end. Thanks Boo. On to the next chapter!
