Canal Festival

Graeme and I, as Life and Times, performed at the Leighton Linslade Canal Festival on July 29th. The occasion gave us a chance to try out the new mixer and headset mics, which worked really well through the band's speakers.
We had a pretty good audience and went down well at each of our two main spots - sold a couple of CDs and created some interest, with people coming up to ask questions and generally chat with us after each performance. We also played some tunes, unamplified, elsewhere on the site (outside the Barefoot Cafe, in fact).
The event also allowed us the opportunity to debut a new song, The Ivel Navigation, and to revive The Life of a Boatie Man. Unusually, we finished with a song composed by someone other than ourselves - the ever-popular Finest of Them All by the late Dave Ritchie. We had a good day, and hope to be able to do similar events in the future.
