I have to start by saying a massive thank you to all those who tuned in to my Facebook Live gig last Wednesday. Click on the link there if you missed it! I was so touched by how many of you tuned in, commented and donated to my paypal link. It meant the world to me that it seemed to bring people together at this mad time and it was wonderful to be performing again, albeit in a very different way. Huge thanks to my wonderful girlfriend Nicol who set up the room to look nice, adjusted lights, replied to comments for me and provided me with a real life audience!
So when’s the next one then?
APRIL 19TH 6pm-8pm via ZOOM
So please note this is NOT on facebook live this time. Oxford Folk Weekend have had the splendid idea of moving their entire festival online using Zoom. The advantage of this over Facebook Live is you will be ‘in the room’ with me in that I’ll be able to see and hear you. So I can play a load of numbers and in between we can have a bit of a chat, you can ask questions etc. Should be fun!
You can get your tickets here: https://fao.yapsody.com/event/index/524606/dan-walsh?fbclid=IwAR3kKIg7Wdw_JRG-fycMlPAbRTZgju9wwsSD3_kbRctkCYORkk6kD8K7YFs
Don’t worry if you’re not familiar with Zoom. Once you’ve got your ticket which is ‘pay what you feel’, you will be emailed full instructions.
There will be more gigs on the way! One of my many cancelled gigs is also going ahead with the gig but online – thanks to Penrith Plug’n’Play! That gig will be on the facebook group for that particular gig (which is public) and will once again be totally live with a paypal donations page. Then I’ll do lots of gigs from my living room for you on facebook live and youtube live until all this madness is over! Any ideas for show themes let me know – I’m thinking of doing a covers gig, genre-specific gigs, artists that have inspired me. For now though I’ve put dates in the diary for April and May…
So the ‘Home Tour’ for April/May looks something like this:
01 Facebook Live – 7pm (THANKS AGAIN FOR YOUR SUPPORT ON THIS ONE!)
19 Zoom Live Stream presented by Oxford Folk Weekend – 6pm
20-25 UFQ Live Week – my band will be doing a week of live stuff on our facebook page
03 Facebook Live presented by Penrith Plug’n’Play – 8pm
13 Facebook Live – 7pm (‘Old Stuff’ – material from Tomorrow’s Still To Come and Walsh and Pound)
17 Facebook Live – 1pm (‘Incidents and Accidents’ – the whole album performed live)
20 Youtube Live – 7pm
27 Facebook Live – 7pm (‘Verging On The Perpendicular’ – the whole album performed live)
31 Facebook Live – 1pm (‘Trio’ – the whole album performed live)
Hope you’re all well. Funny old time eh?!
