AFTER breakfast I re-string the guitars for tonight’s show at Kilmarnock Old Kirk.
One of the tuning pegs on ‘the black guitar’ comes adrift and it takes me a good half hour to repair using some old parts I have kicking about.
There’s a few songs in tonight’s set I haven’t played for a while so I run through them then start packing the gear.
The venue is a great sounding space and I could play with no PA, but I wanna take it to add a wee bit lift to the acoustic sound. I also pack a spotlight and some other lights so I don’t have to play under the stark white house lights. the car is overflowing!
Matty stays at the house and will come later – Margaret and I make some sandwiches and head to the venue to load in and set up.
Everything goes to plan and the PA and lighting are the icing on the cake of a great sounding acoustic venue.
We have a great crowd in and the gig goes really well 🙂
We’re loaded out soon after 10pm and back home soon after…
