March saw my first music gig of the year, at the Shrewsbury Steampunk Spectacular Shindig. The event also gave me opportunity to see a number of acts I'd never seen before. This was a first gig for David Brinkworth and the Pit, (with a style David described as 'Chas 'n' Dave meets Tom Waits), and very fine it was, too. Lady Violet Hugh's songs are of course legendary, and I have to confess that I've had her 'Ladygarden' on my mind all week. And Captain of the Lost Waves (plus Muzwell the Mute) proved to be an excellent musician, singer and entertainer, and all round top bloke. Of course, we mustn't forget the most excellent magicianatrix, Sylvia Sceptre, who entertained the crowds in between sets with her sleight of hand and magic arts.
I also received some airplay courtesy of Australian podcast Cogwebs and Strange, and made a new video in March to celebrate the everlasting snow. And I did a bit more painting!
What will April bring....?
