Hotel Quite Acceptable, Cardiff.

09.50

Rising c. 07.05 and down to the breakfasting trough. Morning reading and setlisting: every time is the first time.

24.34     A good performance, getting stronger throughout IMO. I found it difficult to get a measure of the audience. Rather reserved, perhaps didn’t know KC, or the material, or how quite to engage. But Islands, last piece of the first set, brought a strong response, growing through the second set.

To the venue…

Our driver mentioned that he came from Ebbw Vale. I asked if he knew Aberbeeg, the home of St. Edith Of The Valleys. Very much so: we were honoured to be in the presence of a moving force of the Steelhouse Festival, held annually in Aberbeeg…
