So suddenly out of the blue, Valerio calls me about doing a gig for this festa. He used to run a bar in the village when I lived here first time around.
It was a great night and we launched a newly arranged/written tune ‘Two steps back’
Very pleased with it.
Ironically a few days after speaking to Valerio, this poster fell out of a book… one of the first gigs I did in Italy when Valerio had the bar in the village!!!
I think it would have been 9th April 1999 . . . I reckon
This is a wonderful piece of writing!
Three months prior to this series of gigs, we’d been in Avigliano for the South Italy Blues Connection. We met and I played with the Blind Catfish Blues Band- greta guys
and it was a lot of fun! We kept in touch and this mini-tour came about. It was a great weekend. Thanks, Guys.
This is a ‘late night several cans of beer’ post – but one that I feel needs to be shared.
This is a job posting:
“I am searching for someone who can work fast, qualitative and communicate good.”
Like your good self, presumably!
The internet is great for many reasons but there is nothing as good as seeing your work in print. This was featured in an article about Baer who designed the book and commissioned my drawings.
This is an illustration for a children’s story I wrote some time ago, before I started drawing. I’d given it to my friend Paul, to see what he thought. A week or two ago, he posted to say that he was reading the story to his children, so I started work on the illustrations.
