Dave writes,

Hi everyone, I hope your Summer is going easy and fine despite some crazy weather !

Im back in Manchester for a moment after a wonderful run of shows in North Devon during the month of July. Id like to send out a huge thank you to everyone who was able to attend and also, of course, all the venue owners and staff who made it such a brilliant trip.

Right now Im very much looking forwards to heading out to Blackpool on Friday for the 2023 Rebellion Festival. There is now a definite showtime posted for 6pm till 6.40pm Friday evening on the Almost Acoustic stage. It should be an amazing day with a superb line up of artists.

Following on from Rebellion, Im excited to be travelling back north to Scotland with a great run of shows planned for the Highlands and the north east of Scotland. It will be great to visit with good friends, old and new, and to be back on the road for a wonderful summer.

See you all out there and please remember to go easy and safe.
