WE have a lazy morning drinking coffee, eating croissants and getting some work done before checking out the Premier Inn.
A service station stop for sandwiches en route to Brecon where we arrive in time to check into our hotel before heading round the corner to The Muse to land in for tonight’s show.
Angus and the team from Mid-Wales Rhythm & Blues Club are ready for us. The Muse is a fantastic venue and the soundguy, Ian, is cool and make soundcheck easy.
Margaret’s cousin Dai and his partner Lisa are here for the gig and staying int he same hotel…we see them for a blether while we wait on our dinner. A wee bit Fawlty Towers when we’re told there’s no chicken so all the chicken dishes ‘are off. We both opt for steak pie t be told…’sorry, no pies left’.
We’re pushed for time as doors open at the venue at 7pm and it’s a sold out show, so we need to be back to manage the merch table. We’re told food takes a maximum of 20 minutes and end up ordering sausage and mash. It take 45-minutes to arrive.
As it is, we’re only a few minutes late getting back to the venue.
Openers Candy Mountain & Mr D. (Aled and Dilwyn) put on a great show.
The it’s my turn and I have a blast…with Aled and Dilwyn joining me for a song at the end of my set before my encore of Loch Lomond Home.
The bar’s shut when we get back to the hotel so Dai and Lisa come to our room and we chat for a few hours before turning in.
