Singer Of Your Song Autumn Tour 2014
So I kicked off the Autumn leg of Jane McDonald's 22 date 'Singer of Your Song Tour' in the sunny southwest UK this past weekend with shows in Weston and Truro. As ever, it's a full on 2 hour 20 minute spectacle that requires acoustic/ electric/ lead/ rhythm parts throughout. Great fun to play but full concentration certainly required.
Since this is an exclusively 'in-ears' gig I'm not using an amp set up and the Roland GR55 Guitar Synth board in conjunction with a Fender/Roland Strat is the perfect fit for the demands of the show. The GR55 allows me to move between modelled telecaster, start and les paul electric tones together with lush acoustic sounds often in the same track!
I use ultimate ears, UE-11, for my in-ear monitoring and I play my trusted Taylor 414 for two songs, including the acoustic version of my track 'I'll Be There', co-written with Jane.
Despite the travelling, we did manage to find a little 'real-ale' refreshment. Should be a great tour.
