On Sunday 25th February I performed a short set at the Brown Cow in Mansfield. The reason I only did a 15 minute set is because my throat was extremely sore and I didn’t want to push it more than I needed to! At the time of writing my throat doesn’t hurt so much, but my voice is quite ‘broken’, so I’ve got until Sunday to get it better ready for the Colwick Hall Wedding Fayre! I sang some quite easy songs at the Brown Cow so I don’t think I did extra damage to my voice by singing, it’s just letting whatever illness I have pan out!
Another mishap was that my piano stand broke! To be fair, it was quite an old stand so I’m not too annoyed about it. The picture above is my impromptu set up – thanks to Kyle & Phil for your quick thinking so that the show could go on!
As my throat was sore, I asked the audience to sing my final song, ‘Don’t Look Back In Anger’ – thank you so much for helping me out! It was also a nice change to just play piano while everyone was singing along.
This set was my last with Roots Acoustic for the near future, as I am winding down my live public performances with my wedding coming up. I will be coming back in the summer! My last performance with the piano will be at the Tap & Tumbler in Nottingham on Wednesday 21st March, where I am the guest act for their open mic evening.
