Cat Green Bike now has her very own cat! Needless to say she is very happy indeed. His name is Lyell, or to state his full name; Lyell Lendalino Franka Libya. Those after whom he has been named know who they are.
In gig news; CGB has been chosen as one of 10 Bristol bands put forward by BBC Bristol Introducing to play the BBC Introducing stage at this year's Wychwood festival in Cheltenham. Seven regions have asked to choose a total of 70 bands, out of which a final 28 will be chosen to play the festival. Successful bands should be told by the 7th of May. If I'm lucky, I'll let you know. I may, it seems, also be playing a very exciting festival at the end of May, more details on that when I am allowed to divulge them.
I will be playing a few charity gigs in the coming months, including a fundraiser for six Sustrans staff (including my housemate Rachel) cycling the Coast & Castles Challenge Ride this July. I'll let you know the date of the fundraiser as soon as I know.
Talking of charities, I have decided that from now on a proportion of each CD that I sell will be donated to three charities. They are;
For 'Cat': the Bristol & Wales Cat Rescue (who are responsible for the lovely Lyell)
For 'Green': the excellent mental health organisation Mind who's existence and advice have helped me a great deal in the last nine months
and for 'Bike': my local volunteer run Bristol Bike Project which is run by lovely people for whom I hope to start volunteering soon.
Well, that is a lot of things. I shall leave you now, and go and play Zither to my cat.
