Karlsruhe and Bern (free download)

Have most of the day free in Bern so I’m spending it catching up with booking shows for the next months, writing some verses for new songs and getting a little distracted by this new website I’ve found called the Youtube. Also listening to concerts recorded recently and pledging to speak less between songs, my word.

Last night I played at La Cappella so this is where I am now. A beautiful wooden church converted into a theatre and music venue 20 years ago and run by Christoph and his team. Honestly, the concert was pretty empty last night but I had a lovely evening and I think the people who came had a nice enough time too. We got it dark and lit the candles and played the songs without mics or electricity distracting and making things louder than they need to be. I hope to come back someday and urge you to visit this place as well.


The night before was a concert at the NUN café in Karlsruhe. A perfect bunch of volunteers running the venue wonderfully and helping out to no end. Nice friendly audience and I played so-so ok and these are pictures from the lovely evening by Simon Beha.

Perhaps I will upload the complete recording of the concert soon, as it was kind of solid and sounded grand. I just need to cut out some of the talking for I did go on and on and on and on. Here’s something in the meantime, download and share and what you will.

Tonight I’m heading across to St Gallen for a concert at Sandro’s house. I think it might be pretty full already but if you are in the area and would like to join by all means email me and I’ll stand up so you can have my seat.

Otherwise, it’s Luzern tomorrow, Wienacht-Tobel on Wednesday, Thun on Thursday, Freiburg, Landau and Baden after that. Full dates here.

From my concert at the Horns Erben here’s an old song played as a request.

Was a very quiet, lovely audience in the old room in Leipzig and I played a few things I don’t often touch. Will have more from this concert to come, just wanted to pop this up here.

Lichtensteig and Basel this weekend

I’ll unpack my guitar this weekend when I get to play two concerts in Switzerland. The first is in Lichtensteig at FeinerFreitag and seems to be a special sit down and eat brilliant food and at some point music is served too. I’ve been to this part of the country for concerts before and they’re a good crowd there so I’m looking forward to this. Information is on their site here, but be quick as it seems you have until Wednesday to reserve a place.

The next night I’ll travel across to Basel for a concert at Irrsinn Bar with my friend Lukas and his The Cause Acoustic project:

Irrsinn Bar is underground, dark and sometimes smoky and last time was just great. Starts at 21:00 and it’s at Rebgasse 43, 4058 Basel, Switzerland.

So that’s my plans for the weekend. Out of town, always good.
