At the end of May I had the pleasure of playing Volksfest 2013. Thoroughly had a blast and graced the same Cabaret stage as Joe Black, Mitch Benn, Phil Kay, Mr B: The Gentleman Rhymer and more. Epic!
Then on 1st July, Elegant Savages magazine had me on the cover and a full length interview inside all about my folk and theatre and musical past and whatnot. It was jolly mahvellous and you can read it here: http://www.elegantsavage.co.uk
Shortly after, I went down to Cornwall to party with the steampunks at SinS Resurrected. It was hot. I wore little more than vest and bloomers, drank far too much covonia and gin... And I went on last at midnight in the dark and had a fantastic singalong with everybody there.
Thoroughly enjoyed myself, posed on random farm equipment, slept very badly in a tent and managed to get sunburn through baby factor 50+ AND white makeup!!
Coming back on the train I also found the article I'd written on burlesque and cabaret in the SW had been published on http://www.thisiscabaret.com
It's a 2 part article and the second part will be up soon. Read it here: http://www.thisiscabaret.com/go-south-west-young-man-a-guide-to-cabaret-in-devon-cornwall-and-thereabouts/
So what's next this month? A private party on the 20th for a visitor from Switzerland and a fashion show on the 28th where I will be doing some very darkly different schtuf. See you there!!
