This is a shot of me playing a show in January 2019 (remember those pre Covid days?) at a club in Agonda Beach, Goa. Picture taken by Sandy Cameron the promoter.

I had Goa on my list for a good few years and then Sandy invited me out there to play.

South Goa has a thriving live music scene and the audience is a mixture of expats and holiday makers coming from other parts of India.

Although I played a couple of inland ones, most of the venues are on the various beaches in Goa, so it was a fabulous buzz to hear the sound of the sea as a backdrop to our music as we played our shows .

I really enjoyed the camaraderie out there, playing shows with other musicians as well as with Sandy who is no slouch as a singer in her own right.

Whilst out there I met a Mancunian character called Flakey who inspired me to write “Just Get On With My Life” which is now a contender track  for my next album.
