We had been looking forward to this show for quite a while. We met Al and Dawn the promoters when we supported Paper Aeroplanes and they were so lovely and impressed by us they asked us to support Lucy ward. Lucy is part if the UK folk scene and plays regularly (and I mean like three or four times a week!!) up and down the country. Burton on Trent was about a 40 minute drive from Coventry and when we arrived we couldn’t quite work out how to get into the venue! After trying a few doors I rang Al and he told us how to get in. My phone had actually directed us to the back of the building rather than the front where the entrance was obvious! We met up with Al and Oolay, the sound engineer and also Lucy Ward . Lucy sound checked and sounded great. The venue was lovely. A community arts centre and the show tonight was in the cafe/bar area. We sound checked and Oolay did a great job of helping us sort the sound on stage. We headed to the dressing room to get ready and also eat some of lovely food Al and Dawn had kindly got for us.
