What you need for the up coming Music festival season,
1. Tent - check
2. Waterproofs - check
3. Beer money - check
4. A super pictorial autograph book - It's here now!
Printed on heavy weight premium paper with 60 signatures to collect from artists like, Martin Simpson, Karine Polwart, Steve Knightley, Phil Beer, Chris Wood, Martin Carthy, Kris Drever, John Tams, Kate Rusby, Richard Thompson, Seth Lakeman, John Spiers, Bob Fox, Jon Boden, Steve Tilston, Heidi Talbot and many more
The idea behind this book came about during a conversation about the difficulty in finding blank autograph books and also the fact that years ago we all used to collect autographs, poems even drawings from our friends relations and not just the famous.
I then thought, the only time I see people collecting autographs is usually at concerts and inevitably to sign the latest CD.
Being lucky enough to take photographs at local venues and festival I decided to put some of them together into one book with a challenge to see how many pages you can get signed. I chose acoustic or folk artists because most of them are on constant tour in the UK and easily accessible, though there will be one or two challenges, but the aim is also to get people out and enjoy music as it should be heard in a live environment.
I enjoy nothing more than seeing live music and I manage to to get to at least two or three gigs a week and even more if I can. My web site was set up to help promote those gigs in my local area and also to help me remember where I'm going. If I can I will usually take along a camera to photograph the evening, though not all venues allow photography. I also help out at a venue in Buckingham UK that specialises in Americana music.
