That’s The Wonder Stuff finished for 2017. It’s been a fairly quiet year which is why it’s important to have lots of plates spinning as a modern musician.

My next series of gigs is with

Levellers fiddle maestro Jon Sevink.

Our first gig is in London which is always stressful

These gigs I have acted as agent and have been badgering promoters up and down the country to sell enough tickets to make the gigs work. This is an unfortunate reality of modern touring.

As you can see the idea of musicians doing the odd show and making a tonne of money and relaxing in their mansion for the rest of the year is a myth. It’s a constant and consistent hard job to be a successful musician. But when it goes right it’s really worth it!!
