Dorking -- Rescheduled for June 11th

I'm happy to announce that Pete's appearance at St Mary's, Dorking, has been rescheduled following the last-minute cancellation of February's concert (see this thread) due to extreme weather.
 

 
The new date is Saturday 11th June, and tickets are already on sale, from (link) Eventbrite. If you bought tickets for the February gig, please note that existing tickets will remain valid for the rescheduled appearance. As before, the event is organised by MV member David Scoffield as part of his St Mary's Sessions (Facebook link) initiative. Pete will be accompanied by Simon Wallace on piano.
 
Steve

Thanks for getting the news out there Steve, we're very pleased that Pete and Simon could co-ordinate diaries to get this back on track.  June in Dorking will be flaming marvellous!

Just a couple of weeks until we welcome Pete and Simon to St Mary's Sessions in Dorking, apparently Pete has played Dorking before, a looong time ago.  Was anybody from here there?  You might qualify for a free drink if you come to this one too!  
 
If you are thinking of coming then here's the ticket link again, as we only have 80 seats we can't guarantee tickets on the door but online booking runs until 6pm on the dayso you can always check that way

If you're travelling from a distance and plan to stay over then here's some information on making a weekend of it.  If you're coming by train the stations for London, Reading and south coast services are both within 5 minutes walk and as we finish by 10.20pm there's no desperate rush for homebound trains afterwards with services up until midnight.

And finally here's a bit of video from our recent May show to give some idea of the venue's ambience.

Pete was on great form, and was very grateful for everyone being patient after the storm-induced delay. It was ironic that the gig not delayed for covid was then affected by it. He had his Nord Electro 3 piano, his Atkin guitar and, wonderfully, his venerable National Steel. For the first set he'd clearly been painting in his shirt, but for the second set he  realised how spattered he'd been and wore a more demure red shirt.
 
   
 
"Joker" on guitar was a different experience from the usual piano accompaniment, and definitely worth an outing. We heard the marching version of Colours of the night - of the two, I still prefer the more gentle original version. It was lovely to bump into Ian Shircore. As he mentioned, it was noticeable that people in the audience knew BOTBS well enough not to be surprised by and laugh at the funny bits Smiley Don't worry Pete, we were still amused, just quietly.
 
Sorry that Pete and I only had a brief chat at the end. I completely forgot to get the juicy unprintable gossip from the song-writing course! I also completely failed to thank David for organising such an enjoyable evening, so I'm doing it now.
