Thanks to the lovely audience at South Hill Park arts centre last night for being so attentive and good humoured while we all wondered if my throat would make it through the set! Next gig for me is on Friday 23rd at The Troubadour of Kent - Micropub in Folkestone... Can't wait! Now it's time to appreciate the autumn colours, relax and dream of new songs.... ...

Me, the guitars and my (slightly infected) vocal cords are heading to Bracknell today to support the wonderful Gilmore & Roberts at Bracknell's South Hill Park Arts Centre. Doors open 7.30. www.forrester.uk.com/live
More from the Forrester archives... I had completely forgotten that this existed - a recording of four gigs from a tour of Germany in 1999... amazing!
I remember the Tuttlingen, Offenburg and Kassel gigs well, but have no recollection of the Langenau one. Offenburg is very beautiful, and I arrived just as they had their annual wine fesival. Tuttlingen was a lot of fun, messing around with the American band Nadine who I was touring with as their support. These were recorded by my old friend Wolfgang Wonde, who is still active with music promotion in Germany.
Really interesting to see the song choices... odd to see 'Strangers' gigged so often, I never play it now... and I'm amazed to see that I gigged a song that I never recorded called 'Stop Searching'... I decided it was no good so ditched it soon after!
I'll give it a good listen and decide whether to release any of the tracks online... ... See MoreSee Less
