Making my debut as part of the Hertford Music Festival, I performed an extended set of 45 minutes on the roof of the pub!  Although rather sheltered, unfortunately, the heavy rain made it unpleasant for the audience sitting in the beer garden.

On the same day of my arrival in Toronto, it was a quick journey to Mississauga for Joel's Open Mic at the Roc n Docs Bar in front of a warm, enthusiastic crowd.

The Summer edition of the Surrey Steampunk Convivial and this time, offered the opportunity to perform a set at The Royal Oak.  Dressed in my Steampunk cossie, it was a very enjoyable way of spending a Sunday afternoon with the rest of the  Steampunk family where I was made to feel at home.
