First gigs abroad in 2.5 years

This weekend sees me playing the first gigs of the year and going abroad for the first time since Covid hit in 2020. To say I’m apprehensive is an understatement. Two and a half years is a long time and I’ve become quite comfortable saying at home in a weird way. It’s also a long time in the music world, how will things have changed? What will be being played out now? Not that I’m seeking to fit in but will I enjoy it like I used to? I’ve got some travelling to do which is my least favourite part, especially when you have flight connections although thankfully neither of the countries I’m visiting have Covid restrictions at the moment so that part should be easy.
Tomorrow night I’m in Budapest, Hungary on a boat called Pontoon, apparently it’s free and I’m on at midnight until 2am, come on down if you’re nearby.
UPDATE: Due to the current weather situation over Budapest, my flight has been cancelled and I’m sorry to say I can’t perform at Pontoon tonight. We tried various ways to get around it but the elements were against us today unfortunately.
I am so sorry to be missing this, what would have been my first gig abroad post-Covid, but we’re working hard to get this one rescheduled. I hope I’ll be back in Budapest very soon! Ironically getting through the airport was fine, nothing to worry about there.
Friday is a travel day where I’ll either be in a plane, a car or an airport for the most part. Saturday is the Kala festival in Dhermi, Albania, a beach festival where I’ll be playing at the Cove which I’m told is the chillout area, from 2am to 5am. Then I leave for the 4 hr drive to the airport at 8am Sunday morning…

Kala, Albania line up
