Last night I was scrubbing my kitchen after a week of being in bed with a cold and art exhaustion. While I sat down for a cuppa I saw on Facebook that my friend Michelle Gaskell was streaming a live gig at The Twa Dugs in Ayrshire, Scotland. I watched the gig until the early hours of the morning and a made a couple of drawings of the Duffy Gibbons Band, which is the band of Michelle's boyfriend, Jon Gibbons.
I knew one of the songs from the early 90s, when I lived in Bradford and worked in the Java restaurant. Jon was our neighbour and I often heard him sing and play his guitar with joy and delight in his living room.
The event was hosted by Bailey Guitars, who are building guitars and run a Guitar Making Acadamy. They're currently fundraising to buy their workshop. You can listed back to the gig on livestream.com (Flash required).
