Several of you have mentioned that you missed last...



Several of you have mentioned that you missed last Friday’s gig, and have asked when we’ll be doing another. Well, we’ve been asked to do a special show for the legendary Nettlebed Folk Club, and we’re delighted to tell you that it will take place next Monday 13th July from 8pm BST. As with last week’s show, there will be a cut off for ticket buying, to allow time to send you all the secret access links. Tickets are available now from: https://www.ticketsource.co.uk/firebrand-music/t-yvolrm

“See” you there! x

FAQs:

Performance starts at 8pm with a 45 minute set from Edgelarks, followed by a 10 minute interval, then the gig starts again at 8.55pm.

We will be available for a “chat in the bar” after the gig via Zoom, if you fancy joining us. It makes it feel more like a “real” gig!

Ticket price is per household, allowing any number of people in your residence to watch. Ticket sales will close at midday on Monday 13 July 2020.

Full details of how to access the gig, together with the links will be emailed to you the afternoon of the gig. Please note that you will not need to download any software to view the show.

Thanks so much to everyone who joined us last night for our gig! We hugely enjoyed playing what felt like a real gig for the first time in so long - helped along by being able to see some of our audience on the zoom chat. Ticket holders can watch the show back via their links for another week. See you all again soon ☺️🎶🎶

Last call for tonight’s gig! Tickets available until midday, only a few left. We’re busy setting up…

FAQs: You can watch it back at a later time, you just won’t be able to join in the live chat or the zoom after party.

You can watch the show back for a week.

Ticket holders will be sent a secret link to the show this morning.

We’ll be having a little after show party via Zoom so we can say hello to you all!

#practicepracticepractice … Getting ready for tomorrow...



#practicepracticepractice … Getting ready for tomorrow night’s gig! Here’s some more info on how we’re setting it up:

Ticket holders will be emailed links tomorrow. For this reason, tickets will only be available until midday tomorrow.

The zoom “bar area” will open at 7, if you’d like to have a chat to fellow audience members. We’ll keep it open throughout the gig, so we can see you clapping (if you wish! It’s not compulsory, but this two way interaction has been much requested). The actual gig will be streamed via an unlisted YouTube link, for reasons of sound quality. After the gig, we’ll join the zoom bar to say hello to you all, just like an in-person gig afterparty.

If you can’t join us tomorrow evening, you can still get a ticket and watch the YouTube concert back for a week. However you won’t of course be able to take part in the “bar area” zoom.

Hope that clears up any questions, and see you tomorrow night! (Tickets from https://www.ticketsource.co.uk/firebrand-music/t-zqvpzv)

Our last gig before lockdown was an absolute stonker on the Isle of Man. How many “last gigs before lockdown” will become “last gigs ever”? The arts mean a huge amount to our economy. If Wetherspoons get a £48 million loan to get them through this; if there is £350 million already put aside for a supposed arts festival (festival of Britain budget), why can’t grassroots music venues get the £50 million needed to give them a chance of surviving? We are so, so lucky in this country to have an incredible network of venues and events - we’re a world leader on the music scene. But for how much longer?

Our front garden was a wasteland, so I sprinkled it with all the little packets of wildflowers I’ve been given at weddings and events over the last couple of years. It has flourished into a beautiful jungle, and I just overheard two ladies walking past saying how seeing such a riot of colour made their day. Which has in turn made mine.

Very many thanks to the kind friend who sent us beer this weekend - it was gratefully received 😍 Unfortunately there was no message, so we’re not sure who you are, although you’re clearly someone of excellent taste and judgement - thank you ❤️
