Ok, time to start sorting out what I need to take for my ‘Sting in the Tale’ concert in Ilfracombe tomorrow.

I need to pack all my audio and visual gear, guitar, Bible, books & CDs to sell, clothes to wear on stage and of course my bucket, spade and swimming gear!

On second thoughts I can forget the last 3 as I will be arriving at 6pm tomorrow night and leaving straight after the Sunday morning service so there will be no time for lounging on the beach sadly.

Maybe next time!

If you live locally, see you at The Lantern in the High Street at 7.30 for an 8pm prompt start.

We will have fun!

September ‘Sting’ mini tour

In September I will be doing the 3rd ‘Sting in the Tale’ midweek mini-concert tour, and this time.. I will be back in the midlands again! Although a little further south than the one I’ve just completed.

The first night will be Tuesday September 26th when I will be performing in Coventry (further details to follow).

So I am looking for 2 venues, one on the Wednesday 27th and the other on the Thursday 28th fairly close to Coventry to complete the tour.

Again, I am not looking for huge crowds and all it will cost the local Church will be £50 towards the travel costs.

If interested please let me know asap and I will send you more details.

It will be first come first served.


Next weeks ‘Sting in the Tale’ tour.

If you live near any of the following (or know someone who does) please could you ask them to give the ‘Sting’ concert a mention during their service this coming Sunday.

 Although numbers attending are not too important what is upsetting is when after the gig someone informs me they knew nothing about it and would have loved to have been there. At present there are no plans to be back in this area in the forseeable future.

 Many thanks

If you were at the ‘Glorie Day’s’ concert that we did at Spring Harvest last week (or you know someone who was) I need to get some feedback on it.
Being the premiere of brand new concert that I hope to take nationwide later in the year I do need to hear honest comments both positive and also where you think it can be improved so if necessary I can do a bit of tweeking before the next one.
Sorry that there was not time to teach the actions (which would have been great fun) but I will be doing this when I extend the concert to 90 minutes on tours.
I am hoping that when today’s children and children’s leaders see the Biblical content and fun in some these old songs, they might consider using them, after all, Scripture and Bible teaching songs cannot date and will always be valuable to all believers both young and old.
