Any excuse I have to get on a train you better believe I will take it especially if it is a train through Wales. Newtown was wonderful and I hope we get the chance to do it again. Alex from D3 helped us out a tonne and made sure we knew where we were going. As some of you may know I am not the most religious person in the world but I can say the work that D3 put into the night and throwing the church doors open to everyone in the community regardless of faith, gender, sexuality or race was great to see. Everyone was very welcoming and this sort of community events are going to become more important in the world we live in. Very inclusive and I hope that this will not be the only live music night they put on in their beautiful church.
Millicent Kendall got the ball rolling with a set on her ukulele and some covers and Cascadia Fault Line closed out the night with a great set. I have said it before and I will say it again, Rachel has a phenomenal voice and hearing her sing in the church setting made it sound even more special. I have heard some of their songs over the years and could not get over the change the band has brought to them. I am very excited to be playing with them again at the Zanzibar in May. I am grateful they let me tag along with them.
In between those sets I managed a song or two. I got to meet some truly interesting people and hear stories that I normally would miss out on so thanks everyone for listening and sharing the evening with us and especially for picking up copies of the CD. Hope to do it again soon.
