As requested, here's the reminder for the request I made after your gig at The Slaughtered Lamb. When you play at Hitchin Folk Club on the 8th, would you please play Lydia for me. As promised, if you play Lydia, I'll buy the new cd. I think that's a fair deal ...even though I'd buy it anyway! :)
OK thanks Doug. I've got you in my system. So if my system doesn't crash . . .
I had a great time at the show in Leek, Saffordshire on Thursday, and I am looking forward to seeing you play in the 'Tunnels' at Bristol tomorrow. When I spoke to you I recall asking you to play 'Below' as a request because the song always makes me recollect the story of Capel Celyn in North Wales near where I'm from. The question I was going to ask you concerns a great little song on your outtakes album called 'Another Man's Wealth.' Is this a song you perform live? If you did in the UK you may need to substitute the word "dumpster" for 'foodbank' to give it resonance. Just a thought. See you tomorrow. Really enjoyed MC Hansen's singing by the way. He's written a great song.
At your Leyland gig tonight you kindly congratulated me on learning and playing breakfast in hell for a motor neurone association event. I wondered if I could email you the video of the my version of you classic song. Regardless I would like to say a huge thank you for the inspiration over the years. Stay free.
