Coming soon: news of an important concert performance by Pete, with backing musicians! You'll hear more about it in Pete's next newsletter, but if you're within trekking distance of Bristol I suggest you keep this date clear.

It's also the day of La Fête de la Musique in France when anyone can (and does) go out and play all night in the street if they like. Anything like that in GB these days?

Oh no! Please read "if he (or she) likes." Got the "does" right and then the old vigilance slipped. Sorry.
 
Talking of celebrations, isn't this year going to see the 10th Anniversary of Midnight Voices? Anything lined up?

Yes, Ian, there is something related to that in Britain on June 21: Exhibition Road Music Day, in South Kensington, where, for the past couple of years there have been free music events all day at various organisations in that area of London.  
Last year, I took part, giving my "Landscape of Exile" recital (settings of the words of Heinrich Heine and Bertolt Brecht), accompanied by Stephen Rose (the wonderful pianist you'll recall from PoD '04) at the Goethe-Institut.
 
We've been invited back this year - but NB: Midvodians' priority for June 21 is to  
get to Bristol for Pete's gig  Smiley, and I have no wish to divert them from that !!

June 21st -- St George's, Bristol

Pete has now revealed details of the June 21st concert in his latest newsletter. What most makes it special is that he will be performing with backing instrumentalists. Pete writes:
 
"It will be just me (i.e. no support) but I'll be  
doing it with a small but highly select group of musicians, including  
at its core the admirable Simon Wallace on piano (latterly musical  
director for next-big-thing Clare Teal, a bit of a J-A fan from his  
student days, and no mean songwriter himself in collaboration with  
the almost legendary Fran Landesman). We haven't finally decided on  
the rest of the line-up - apart from me playing a bit of guitar -  
but it will certainly include (string) bass, probably some kind of  
percussion, and possibly a horn player, ideally someone who can  
double maybe tenor sax and clarinet, that sort of thing."
 
Don't try to book yet -- wait for an announcement here. Any follow-up re the newsletter (rather than the gig announcement) to the Newsletter board, please. Sign up for your own copy of the newsletter, direct from Pete, by email request to <newsletter (at) peteatkin (dot) com>.

'It will be just me' - modest as ever. Mr Atkin, we want no support,  but we hope the headliners will play all night!

I'll try to come over for some work in the BL, thereby making Pete a tax write-off.

Once you've booked on-line, how long should it take for their email confirmation to come through? My first attempt was timed out. It Said the second one had been accepted, but I ain't heard yet. Don't want to lose this by undue confidence in automatic systems! (but on the other hand I don't want to apply again and end up with 2 tickets.)

Hello, Nedd.
 
I got my e-mail confirmation immediately. You might want to call or e-mail them to check on the status of your booking.
 
See you there in any case.
 
Best,

I booked an hour ago but haven't had an email either. The Visa card has been debited so I'll give the box office a ring tonight to check everything is OK, they should be open this evening because there's a concert on.
 
Its a lovely venue and I've been a regular visitor since discovering it in 2000 when Pete did a gig there with Clive. The concerts are amazingly varied, artists are top notch and if you live close enough its worth becoming a Friend to get that priority booking.  
The Steinway is superb, I'm sorry Pete won't be playing it, hope this Simon Wallace is OK  Smiley

Students of our freshly revamped Smash Flops Front Page will no doubt already have followed links to find out more about these gentlemen!
 
If you haven't visited recently, give it a go. If you have, but it doesn't look any different from last time, reload the page to refresh your cache. You should find the site easier to navigate, and in doing so may find resources that have previously been buried a few layers down. Also the broken off-site links have been fixed, though I notice one (what's up there, Cary?) has become defunct in the last couple of days.
