Re: Rider

I guess it has changed over the years, but it's pretty basic. Just what we need for a show. Some lunch food (sandwich stuff), the booze people want (generally beer, tequila and red wine), a whole bunch of water. Nothing fancy.

Re: Folk by the Oak

Uh, I guess I do vary sets a little by audience, but it's balanced by a sense of trying to present my best self in all situations - I don't want to bend over backwards for an audience, there's a middle ground in there somewhere. We shall see.

Re: Sam Cooke

I read the Peter Guralnick one, I think. Great writer. I love Sam Cooke; "One Night Stand At Harlem Square" is one of the best live records of all time, for me. Love the whole thing.

I like a lot of Otis Redding, and yeah Marvin Gaye is ace too.

Re: Build Me Up Buttercup

Hey Frank, Heard the original for the first time the other day on the radio and had no idea how upbeat it was originally, and don’t really know anything at all about it. What’s the backstory behind your cover? Cheers, Steve Hi there. I was asked to cover a song from 1968 to mark the 40th anniversar...

Re: Broken Piano

Hi there. Uh, hard to say exactly, but a few months of toying with it. Nice to see the little cogs being noticed, it's all very much intentional. There's a chapter about this song in the new book.

My idea (always pick the openers). I've known Grace for a while; in fact, she played show #22 in Leicester with me in 2005..!

Re: opening acts for Lost Evenings III

As soon as we can really. Working through booking this stuff is pretty laborious (and gives me more sympathy for big festival bookers). We'll get there asap.
