Alterego kicked off 2015 last weekend with a Burns night supper in York. Great night even though we started a bit later than we were expecting to. Lots of enthusiastic dancers full of haggis and whiskey! We initiated our latest recruit, guitarist and singer Steve Marshall at this booking and he coped admirably with the rather unorthodox arrangements we tend to put to some standard tunes! Well done Steve and we hope to have you and Dee join us when you can.
Coming up we have a birthday party to play for on 14th February (private party), we are running acoustic open sessions on 31st January, 28th Feb and 28th March at Stamford Bridge Cricket Club, playing a band set at The Bay Horse, Stamford Bridge on Sunday 15th March (an early set playing from 6.00 -900), and another band set at the Royal Oak, Barlborough (Chesterfield) on Friday 20th March. We are also doing a showcase set on 18th April at the Tiger Inn, Beverley.
Moving in to the summer we are playing at Doncaster Folk Festival, Wirral Folk Festival, and Moira Furnace as well as several parties, weddings and anniversary celebrations. We have dates available for festivals and parties in June, early July and early August. If last year is anything to go by we will start to fill in these dates fairly soon. We will worry about the autumn later in the year.
Hope to see some of you somewhere over the next few months. Keep your eye on the diary page for updates.
