As you may have read in the last post, Stornoway are very
excited to have been invited to play at Glastonbury festival this
year! Following in the footsteps of (and standing on the shoulders
of) The Epstein, we were put forward in the Emerging Talent
competition and have been chosen out of literally hundreds of acts,
to play on the Queen's Head stage on Thursday. In addition there
will be a play-off gig in late March where we'll face the other 11
acts that've made it this far - to see who is chosen (personally by
Mister Eavis CBE) to appear on one of the main stages for the
Saturday. Please visit the
on our blog for full info and links.
We're feeling rather stretched at the moment, with Brian in
Ecuador, Adam in East London, Rahul in Berkley and Gabi in Paris!
But the remaining Storno's have still been making musical
merriment over the past week...
Ollie made an appearance at the Cellar as main support to
, for the Shrove Tuesday imSoc night, aided on bass by
our good friend Alex Badamchi. The next public airing of their
music will be on
17th April at the Wheatsheaf
, for Swiss Concrete promoters.
Jon Rob and Ollie visited Magdalen Road studios last night to
help the lovely
working on new songs following the success of
The Automatic Door
. We'll be joining him on stage again for
CooCooClub's March 14th show at the Jericho Tavern. Stornoway's
has more details.
With Jon in Dorset for the weekend we truly are left with the
very dregs of Stornoway. The two remaining members of your
favourite folk-pop outfit will be performing at a small party in
Christchurch college tomorrow night; this will be the first time a
song by drummer Rob is ever heard live!
Next month will see us all happily reunited. Come join us
then for more tuneful tidings on the 14th March at Jericho Tavern
in Jericho and the 21st March at the Cross Kings in Kings Cross. In
the meantime, more blogposts on the way next week!
