I'm starting to think about my next solo show, at my lovely 'local' Ropery Hall... completely solo that is, although i bring my whole family of instruments, 12 of em if i've counted correctly, to keep me company.. The newest one is an unusual beastie, a Hand Pan. For once something i dont blow, its a multi-pitched metal drum. Quite unusual looking, its been likened to a wok, or a spaceship. Couple of days ago i was playing for some lovely primary school children, one of them stuck his hand us.. 'Mr. Snake, it looks like an apple pie'! I see what he means.
Big News now, our first Trio CD, with Johnny Thirkell and Mark Creswell, is recorded, mixed, mastered, at the pressing plant and will be on sale in a few weeks time.
