Maastricht: Book launch

A book of 29 poems for which I did 13 illustrations including the cover; the book was designed by Baer Cornet- a wonderful designer and lovely guy. Wido is my dear friend, who runs Zuiderlucht- the publishing company- and my ‘visionary editor!’

Verona – 4

And so the final evening at Roses American Bar, in Cerea run by Joy Fazion. Beautiful bar, great venue, great guy and it was jam packed with people . . . on a Monday night!

Did my set with the Lorenz, Matteo and Giacomo, then handed over to Valter (Consalvi – vocals & guitar and Guido (harmonica). Then a few more tunes with the boys then a few with Lorenz, and Rudi Rotta’s original rhythm section Giorgio (bass) and Lele(drums) – these two are as solid as it gets ! Then finally a last number with True Blues Band before collapsing into bed – -tired but very happy!!!
