Sunday 23rd November 2008 - The Ferry Tap, South Queensferry

This booking was taken at very short notice, and I was in two minds.  However, given the current financial climate (ie not enough cash and too much flow), I decided that maybe working was better than sitting on my butt in the house watching TV.

I am so glad I agreed to do this gig.  The Ferry Tap audience is one of the friendliest I have come across in all my time as a singer.  They were very attentive, and applauded loudly with gusto at the end of every song, then waited quietly to hear what I had to say.  They were so nice, particularly Linda and Peter, that I will now tell you a bit about the pub.

The Ferry Tap is on the High Street in South Queensferry (- a wee warning to any other acts is the lack of parking spaces on a busy Sunday night.  Just park outside, unload and then find a space to park).  The ceiling inside the pub has been made to look like an old railway carriage, which makes for excellent acoustics.  It's a historic pub with several real ales available on tap.  The owners were having a 10 day real ale and wine festival (21st to 30th November 2008), and were giving out t shirts to customers for every 10 pints of ale.

I hope I come back here again to this beautiful pub, and it's excellent punters (although my quiz skills leave a lot to be desired lol - you'll understand if you were there)
