Last Thursday’s gig (Martyn Joseph) has made me rethink my approach.
- I’ve mothballed the electrics for a while.
- I’m going back to working on my old songs. I’ve many that I’ve never performed solo and many that are part complete.
- I’ll ‘soften’ some of the Martin Simpson arrangements.
- There’ll be a new focus in future songs.
It’s a pity that Martyn doesn’t perform “Carried in Sunlight’ anymore – I fully understand why but it is a song of rare beauty and power. The only song I can think of that I find as moving is Janis Ian’s “Tatoo”. ‘Masters’ of lyrics and melody both of them.
