Live recording of the complete concert at 1000Fryd in Aalborg in the north of Jutland. A very relaxed evening, with some excessive chatting from the stage and friends joining me for a couple of songs near the end. 

Uhrskov;Andersen also played this night and they're
here.

Thanks to everyone on stage and at the 1000Fryd.

A return to the Kunsthaus in Essen for a somewhat lively and talkative concert. Some newer songs, some requests for good friends at the show. 

The download includes a full size pdf of the poster for the concert. 

The previous 2018 concert at the Kunsthaus is here:

Please note that there was no sound technician at the mixing desk throughout the concert and subsequently the microphone peaks at several parts during the couple of louder songs. This lasts just a few, brief moments but could not be removed as it was on both the mixing desk and room sources. Please listen to the version of 'Lover O Lover' for the worst of it. It is what it is. 

Also, 'When I Was Single' was played acoustic in the middle of the room so naturally sounds different to the rest of the set.

Sophia Basler was able to join me on violin for this concert. Her newborn son was in the next room and super hungry so we were limited as to how long she could be away from him and play for. Normally she would be able to contribute to most of the set but there are more important things.

The concert was in a full room in a private house with a very loose, friendly atmosphere. There's a lot of talking between songs, also my terrible attempts at jokes and all sorts of nonsense. We cut a lot of this stuff out to try and make it as listenable as possible but there is a lot of talking and nonsense between songs. 

The first and the last songs were played acoustic in the room, without the use of the PA. We've adjusted the levels for these songs but you'll hear a difference.

Simon Wittwer (at http://www.seewee.ch) took the photo on the cover. He also chose to make a lot of other photos on the evening and this too is pretty audible on the recording. A selection of his images from the night are included in the download.

'When I Was Single' is a wreck as people were laughing too much.

Some other explanations about things happening that can't be seen but only heard on the recording include people laughing at me trying not to stamp my feet for most of the second half of the set, someone called Matthew and his friends laughing at the song sharing his name and Simon making me jump a bunch of times by photographing so close when I wasn't expecting it.

What the hell, it was fun night. Sophia played her heart out and I recorded it and here it goes online for anyone that is into this stuff.

Many thanks to Yannick and all at the house for the invitation and warm welcome.

This was a long concert across two sets in the wonderful upstairs Saal in Horns Erben, Leipzig, Germany. The room was seated and packed with a very quiet, attentive audience and I played some things I don’t often touch. Was a lovely night for me.
