It’s been wonderful meeting people on the Gipsy Tour so far. It’s also been really brilliant how many people have asked me about the lyrics from the songs I’ve been singing at the gigs (genuine interest is the sincerest form of flattery for me). Some people have even asked me for print copies of the lyrics from So Long! — so here you are! So Long! lyrics
What an incredible weekend!
We busked for 24 hours, raised £750, one Stroud pound, one euro, a bag of mushrooms, a bunch of carrots and some hot apple cider.
We played our own songs, sang songs by everyone from Neil Young to George Michael to Cyndi Lauper to Daft Punk, and we were joined by some special guests who eased the strain on our vocals. Special mention goes to Wallis Bird who was with us Friday evening and all day Saturday and made the whole thing 100 times more enjoyable with her incredible energy, mad guitar skillz and rousing renditions of Eddi Reader’s Per-er-er-er-er-er-fect.
We were also asked to do a last minute interview and song with Paul Moss on BBC Radio Gloucestershire, which you can listen to here for the next few days, and we’ll be appearing in the newspaper Stroud Life next week.
Phew! Thanks to everyone who helped and donated, there are some great snaps up on our facebook page, and remember, if you donated you get to have your name in the album credits – if you didn’t manage to give us your name, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Update: Thanks to our ‘Donate’ button, we’re now on £800!! This is amazing, thanks again.
