THE alarm goes off at 6am and we get showered and sandwiches made up for today’s trip to London for the blues awards.
We’re parked up in Milngavie by 7.30am and on the train into Glasgow, then onto London.
There’s a few hours to kill and we drop in to see Steve at DeWolfe Music and go for a coffee. Always grand to catch up with Steve and he always manages to motivate me to get into the studio and produce some music for them.
After a quick wander around what’s left of Denmark Street we make out way to Shepherds Bush, stop at Nando’s for a quick bite then onto Bush Hall for the awards.
We hang out with our pal Trevor (who wins the acoustic blues artist category….I had no expectations of winning so extremely pleased he picks up the title) and his wife Emma, Nikki and Sandy from Jubjubes and various other folks we haven’t seen for ages.
The event is done by 11pm and we make our way back to Kings Cross where we hang out until our 5.30am train back to Glasgow.
