Here’s something I forgot to mention recently – ArtsFest. Great experience playing outside in an open air stage with cascading water running under your feet!

It’s always great to perform although thats not to say that it went quite as smoothly as it should! On the one hand it’s nice to not have to take the stage piano, mixer, amplification, lighting etc. However, it’s abit scary when you’re trying to play a piano with no sustain pedal. Worse still this piano decided to sustain every note – not a pleasent sound at times. So lesson learnt: Whenever I’m told you don’t need your own equipment ignore it!

It was fun though.
