she makes war

  • A few weeks ago I played a show at my favourite home town venue; The Tin Music and Arts. The night was hosted and ran by She Makes War (Laura Kidd) and was the first of her Breakfast with Apollo nights that took place not in Bristol or London.

I have been inspired by Laura Kidd (www.shemakeswar.com) who writes a similar weekly blog. So here we go… 1. THE SNOW Last weekend I really enjoyed the snow. After heading out in pretty heavy snow to my friend’s birthday drinks at my local pub…
