A very windy day on the Bandstand at Bestival! It was a fun gig and I was accompanied by drummer Kevin O’Rourke, guitarist Jason Sidwell and Roshan Wijetunge (Tosh) double bass. A few things got blown over and I managed to play the guitar and hold a stand at the same time as Jason launched into a great guitar solo… don’t know how we managed that! The sun was shining and it wasn’t too muddy this time!
I love this place – Air Lyndhurst is a converted church made into superb studios. It seems that every huge movie, prominent artists and orchestras have recorded here. Originally George Martin’s studios these walls have seen some history in the making! It’s always been an amazing feeling to hear your music being played by others in the great hall. We also recorded the Aurora album with the girls choir Cantamus here. That was quite a day;) This particular recording, the studio was packed with people and it was the first programme and first recording of Africa, so to say there was a lot of anticipation in the air that day, was an understatement! All went well….
