We hope you're having a really great start to the spring. We've probably said this before - but we absolutely love this time of year! You've only got to look at the current view outside our front door to know why!
The Big News
When the sun's shining and your garden's full of flowers, anything seems possible doesn't it? And so - it seems like the perfect time of year to make some BIG decisions. And the one we've got to share with you is a bit of a whopper, really. It's been a little under four years since we formed Ninebarrow. Amazing really! In many ways - time has flown by, and in other ways, it feels like we've been doing this forever! Over the last year, it's become increasingly hard for us balance our lives and generally just fit everything in - things like: sleep, any kind of time off, day jobs...that sort of thing! So...after a great deal of thought, we've taken the decision to give up full-time day-jobs and pursue music professionally. That means that from this summer, we'll be starting the next chapter in what is becoming a rather exciting musical journey!
Literally, the only reason that we're able to do this is because of the unbelievable support we've received over the last four years: from clubs, festivals and venues who've booked us, and from you wonderful people who've come (and keep coming!) to listen to our music. We'd like to offer you all a huge thank you for helping to send us out on this new adventure. We can't wait - and we're really looking forward to seeing you all out along the way.
How do you follow that?!
How about with...WE'VE JUST BEEN BOOKED FOR CAMBRIDGE FOLK FESTIVAL! Not a bad follow-up eh?! :D We're absolutely delighted to be one of five acts selected to showcase their music on the festival's club stage. In their words, these are five acts that the festival thinks 'will go on to great things in the future'.
And how do you follow that...?!
Ok - we'll give it a go! :) We're equally thrilled to tell you that we've been asked to support Show of Hands at their annual summer concert in Abbotsbury! We've heard amazing things about this event from stacks of people, so we're pretty darn excited!
Having just finished what was a thoroughly enjoyable Easter tour - we've just reached another milestone, having topped 1000 members to our mailing list! As ever - you can find out when we'll next be in your area by trotting along to our gigs page. We'd love to see you out and about at some point this spring or summer.
If, however, we're not coming to your neck of the woods (sorry!), or you just fancy doing something a little different and special - you can always contact us about putting on your own 'house concert'. As the name suggests, we come and play an acoustic show in your very own house! We've had some absolute corkers over the last year or so! If you fancy finding out more - click the image!
That's all for now folks! Hopefully see you down the road sometime soon!
