...and the next night you'd go and play the gig, and I'd say, 'Got it NOW! Hey, you wanna play that song?' And it was different again - Jerry Ricks, Port Townsend 97

Heck, find a street corner, plop your case down and play.  Great thing about playing the street is that the crowd changes quickly enough (usually) that you don't have to worry to much about repeating a song if you're working on a new one.  It gets you used to performing in public...

Well done, Laura. Simply great! You really should play out, if only to provide a point of reference for which to compare a lot of the high profile crap that masquerades as music. You certainly are some gal! ;) Keep it up.

one of my regrets in life is that by the time I started busking my children were too cool to panhandle ....

Does sound fun! The streets of Ireland are kinda rainy though. Constantly rainy.
:)  Thanks again all for the good words!

I cut my teeth playing the streets in Sachsenhausen, in Frankfurt aM.   Pretty rainy there, but we found a way to do it.  You'll have fun, the crowd is (generally) pretty forgiving and generous....and it gets you over that stage fright kind of thing...

Or, as an alternative, you could follow Jethro Burns advice.  He said he always got nervous playing the first song of a night, so he started with the second one, and then went back to the first one later on....

Absolutely great playing Laura - superb and good singing too.  Wonderful to see someone from Cheshire playing Gary's songs and especially so well.

Laura, you could always handle your Irish weather the way the Rev. would have done--get a J200! After all, the streets of NYC aren't exactly a sunny paradise.
