Nick at Green Note, 29/5/2011

SimonF's picture

Went along to Nick's gig at the Green Note in Camden last night, a new venue for me and, I think, for Nick.  One of the smallest venues I've been to, giving the gig a very intimate feel.

Not much opportunity for photography, owing to the very subdued lighting, but here goes:

 


 Setlist:

Two Way Thing; 

Blood Song;

Evo;

Smithereens;

FotCoG;

Guitar Man;

[interval]

Manchester Academy gig, 21/05/2011

SimonF's picture

My first Harper gig for quite a while, a much longer gap than I'd have liked, but what a cracker to return to.

 

Partial setlist:

Simple;

 

Blood Song;

Treasure Island;

Evo;

Juicy Fruit Girl;

FotCoG;

The Story of My Heart;

Passing Chord;

Freestyle;

Guitar Man;

The Tyger (thanks to an audience member who provided a capo);

Smithereens;

Love is Music;

Avebury song;

Titties and beer.

 

Thanks, as always, to Nick for a great gig, and for not minding a camera shoved in his face.  Here's a few stills, they're a bit soft and 'noisy' as they're off a video camera (there is some video as well but that will have to wait for 'another day').

A Song About A Song

The Songwriters Circle

AndyRoberts's picture

Let me introduce a community for songwriters I helped set up just a couple of months ago.

The Songwriters Circle aims to provide a space for collaboration and support amongst songwriters onine, and for aspiring songwriers to learn as well. Most of the interactions are taking place in a Facebook group at present, because that's where the group emerged from, and its a space that seems to be able to grow quite quickly. But there's a muti-blogging space as well, based on a primitive installation of the same drupal software as Stormcock.

Throughout January we had a series of daily songwriting challenges, or tasks which helped to keep up the momentum, and provided a rich learning opportunity one way or the other. I's still no idea how many people may eventually have completed the month's worth of stuff, but there have been some very positive comments along the way. 

Anyway, I thought I'd mention it here because there are so many guitar players and performers, including some great songwriters who may be interested in comparing notes about the song writing process and so on, one or two who already found their way via Facebook - ( that terrible place which we only go to  because everybody else is there....) 

There may even be some good value in taking an outsiders' view as to where such a community might go next.
