Ending the year in Sweden

For us it has been a very short working year with only eight shows, all of them in the last two months. Terry’s sad news meant we had to perform these last shows without him. Now the situation worldwide looks to be worsening with the pandemic so we are lucky to have played these shows at all. It ‘s very early to say goodbye to everyone for Christmas but at least we did get together and we experienced two great audiences in Helsingborg and Malmo. Now we go home and stay there and ride out whatever winter has in store for us. Perhaps things will be different in February when, on paper, we start a busy year of touring. Only time will tell. For my part I shall never forget how wonderful our audiences at these last eight shows have been. There’s a lot of spirit in humans and we can overcome any adversity with strength and courage. I wish everyone the best Christmas they can manage, time with their loved ones, and a New Year full of hope and change.
