Saturday 29th September - Bridgeness & Carriden Bowling Club, Bo'Ness (with Ronnie from `Nickel Bay`)

It's always a bit daunting to turn up at a venue you've never played before - it's all the more scary when you are to be performing as a duo with someone you've never met!  I needn't have worried though.  Ronnie was nothing but helpful all through the night, and my nerves soon died down.

I find it a bit scary when I don't know a tune very well but have to harmonise or sing along with it, so my half hearted oohs and aahs were maybe a bit quiet for the most part, but I don't think anyone really noticed that much - they were even telling me Ronnie should take me on as his singer!  A bit cheeky, as Kenny (the other half of Nickel Bay) was away on holiday and I was just filling in!  Sometimes I think an audience just enjoys a wee change now and then.  It doesn't matter how.

I would be glad to do an act like this one on a regular basis.  Sharing the workload but doubling the act would be excellent.  I enjoyed doing different material too, and I have picked up a few song suggestions from Ronnie.

So, all in all, a good night, if a little different for me.  Thanks Ronnie!
