Barcelona

In October, I travelled to Barcelona to play in a beautiful bar under an old street in Gracia. I was made so very welcome by the owners and all the locals who came to see me play. They created the kind of pin-drop, perfect quiet that makes playing a solo acoustic set a complete privilege and a kind of two-way magical experience. Not having played outside the UK before, I was also blown away by how much of a connection it is possible to make across culture and language. I really don't speak any Catalan (which is very much the local tongue) but I did manage to sing 4 lines of a Spanish spiritual! I can't wait to go back and take some bandmates to play again there soon...
