Bredonborough.

15.34

Today’s lunchtime performance (billed in the Parish newsletter as a recital) was in Pershore Abbey, not far from Bredonborough, and announced in the Pershore Parish Newsletter as a “recital”.

This, the second performance of the Churchscapes tour, and the first arranged by Mark Graham. As a schoolboy, Mark used to cycle to Pershore from his school in Malvern. For anyone familiar with the Malvern Hills, the Graham legs must have snapped like whipcords carrying him back to Malvern.

Prior to the performance itself, the Solar Voyager carried a Bell Threshold of the longer and ambulatory variety, to welcome arrivals to the Abbey.

The sound, from the guitarist’s stool, was superb.

The performance was graced with the presence of several notables in the audience, including Judy Dyble, GJ Blom, Dr. Margus Laidre (ambassador of the Estonian Republic to the UK), John and Heather (our gardener and house maintainer), Mr. Big Cheese the Builder with his Smaller Cheeses (including Dave the Ambient Musician), plus several local friends and acquaintances .

Shortly, off to Cambridgeshire.

21.29 B&B Fabbo-Of-The-English-Kind, Ely.

A hard drive, on a Friday late afternoon and early evening, and I left all my clothes behind. What a dope. Partly a result of being tired and not quite yet landed from the performance in Pershore Abbey. But, fundamentally, because Fripp is a dope.

Dribble. But dribbling with a guitar in hand.
