Re:

Ours is a three piece so no one's really dispensable. I did consider getting a dep drummer but the bass player wasn't keen. I expect over time it would be easier to build a pool of deps but as a start-up band it's not that easy. A pool of regular deps is very much a factor if you want to gig to sui...

Re: Any big country artists coming to England this year?

Depends how you define 'Country' ?

The Carolina Chocolate Drops will be over again.

Re: IS THERE A FINER GUITARIST THAN RICHARD THOMPSON ?

probably thousands! and in the UK alone.. Look further than the limited country or popular music idioms.

Re: How many gigs are you getting?

I've been out all day, touting for business for a new (non-country) band that I'm in. I got a few requests to call back, as expected, but no firm dates, which is disappointing. I'm hoping that once we've done a few gigs it'll be easier. It seems there's a lot of competition chasing fewer gigs, with...
