AFTER my morning guitar student has left I hit the studio.
First job of the day is to speak to journalists and radio folks in and around Oxford to try and get some exposure for the upcoming show at Port Mahon (10 February).
I also phone round the BBC stations in the upcoming gig areas to see if I can set up some interviews and/or acoustic sessions.
Next job is filming some more stuff for the ‘rig rundown’ video I’ve been working on. There’s some b-roll and cutaways to shoot then I start putting together a rough edit.
Mikey’s arrives just as I’m heading off to the village to pick up a prescription, he’s finishing off a job at our neighbours’ place but first Margaret;s going up to Rowardennan with him to see another potential job.
Back home I do some more editing and get the majority of the production done, I have a couple more sequences to drop in and then title and end sequences….
