Matt Pegg on the road in the UK, 22 November 2008 (2)

At the Beaufort Theatre, Ebbw Vale, playing bass with folk-rock super-group, The Gathering

 


 Ray Jackson, centre, performed two very strong  Lindisfarne tunes, Lady Eleanor and Meet me on the Corner: both benefited from the band's four-part vocals

The Gathering ... they gather in black

Ray Jackson played mandolin and some improbably nimble harmonica

After the show, in the bar, there was some serious semantic discussion following Doug's use of 'hyggelig', a Danish word meaning something like 'cosy'
but for which there is no real English equivalent. Kristina mentioned that Spanish cannot distinguish 'snuggle' from 'cuddle'. Linda opined
that the latter generally happens face-to-face; Ray claimed it was 'the posh word for 'grope'. BtP asked Matt and Kristina
to demonstrate 'snuggle' and 'cuddle' for the camera (above) but we can't now be certain which is which ...

Kristina at least has her feet on the right way round

The band in the bar, late, pose for 'Beyond the Pale'. Not pictured, but a welcome presence, Mr Clive Goodman from Tredegar,
a great fan of  The Commander, fan of As Strong as Samson, and frequent visitor to this website greetings, Clive, and see you at Cropredy.

Back row: Doug Morter (Albion Band), Matt Pegg (Procol Harum), Jerry Donahue (Fairport Convention),
 In front: Ray Jackson (Lindisfarne), Kristina Donahue (thrice a Fairport guest vocalist), Clive Bunker (Jethro Tull)



Matt shows BtP's correspondent the 'soup of the day' on which he's been living on this tour. Also pictured, Clive Bunker (left)

And let's not forget another Copenhagen-dweller, Jonathan Ash, who warmed us up nicely at the outset
