Meteorologically speaking it’s Spring apparently, and the daffodils and crocus are joining the snowdrops, which is always a good sign for those of us seasonally affected syndrome sufferers, so it’s time for a new post! In January we had the pleasure of a wonderful few hours on Halton Community Radio with the tireless Tony Higginson, chatting and playing some of our songs along with our good friend Ian D Hall (not forgetting Judith!). Mixcloud has the evidence here and here and a little bit on the end of this one.
I’d post the photo if I could find it, but it’s eluding me at the moment. Speaking of photos I’ve taken the opportunity to post some of my photographs from Barry Jones Photography as I don’t have a separate website anymore (Long story!) so I thought I’d display some on a page here. There are a mixture of styles and subjects, mainly music pictures from my time with Americana UK and R2 magazine and as in house photographer at Southport Arts Centre, now the Atkinson, who still have some of my photographs on permanent display (Although the credits have mainly disappeared! Was it ever thus?)
We have some nice things planned for the coming year, I’ll post them on the gig page as soon as I have confirmation, but a few trips to the enchanted Isle of Anglesey are eagerly anticipated including another appearance at the delightful, bijou Folk On The Farm Festival, please consider attending, it’s inexpensive, it’s a terrific place, they do great work and Jon Hippy and his team will make you feel very welcome I assure you! Also a, tinged with sadness, appearance at the soon to close View Two Gallery, the scene of many wonderful evenings, at an evening planned by our good friends Liverpool Acoustic.
Thanks for checking in with the page, Ronnie and I have been playing together for 9 years this month ( “And it don’t seem a day too long!” As the old song goes!) Best wishes to all! Barry xx
