Solid Ground at the Bridge House, Made in Penge open mic

Had some great gigs recently and got some lovely things coming up - keep an eye on the shows page or Reverbnation and I'll try to get the Facebook listing up to date as things come through on there. We had a brilliant time with the Spinners Legends in Orpington on Friday, and a truly hilarious day at the Sunset Festival in Carshalton on Saturday - big shout out to Chloe Ray and all who organised for making that such a brilliant day for the Sepsis Trust. I also really enjoyed the afternoon at Cafe Dolce Vita in Petts Wood - despite losing my voice! - these relaxed coffee-shop-style afternoons are very much my thing and I'm on the lookout for more of those!

Sometimes at some gigs something special happens and the magic just descends and this happened last week at the open mic at the Bridge House in Penge, where Glenn Lawrence, as always his utterly supportive self wherever local musicians are concerned, caught this video of Solid Ground. This was at the end of a short set where I'd already sung Wish These Years Away and Renegades and there was a strong sense of connection in the room - it felt like a truly shared moment. 

If you're local enough to make it to one of these nights, they're the first Tuesday of the month and a real haven for local musicians, such a lovely crowd there and always a good mix of regulars and newcomers - but it's only once a month so got to make the most of it!
