Happy New Here-we-go-again! Hope you're all keeping well and safe - troubling times for everyone, but I guess at least there is a chink of light at the end of this particular tunnel.
Despite most, if not all, of my usual Christmas live events being cancelled, we still had fun with online material, including a version of our regular folk carol service. It's become a real staple at my church, and is usually packed to the doors, so rather than let it fizzle out completely we decided to record it this year with a socially distanced band. The musicians were amazing (as usual) - but all the more so as the church heating broke on the day of the session! I asked if people wanted to cancel, but they were all so keen to be playing together that we all got muffled up and did it anyway, so big thanks to them all, and our tech man, Mark, for really stepping up.
It's a bit after-the-event now, as we're into the new year (although it's still Epiphany, I guess!) but if you want a bit of post-Christmas cheer, here it is!
I've also had chance to do a bit more recording work in the studio, so I'll be letting out the odd sneak peak at some of that shortly. Take care in the meanwhile.
