March News

Hello!
It doesn’t seem a month since I last posted here!  Time flew by with seriouskitchen.  We had such a great time on the Whispering Road.  We played lots of great venues and made lots of new great friends.  One of the highlights was our day videoing at The High Barn in Great Bardfield and we’re busy releasing out youtube videos.  We spent a week editing all the footage together and are really pleased with the way it all came out.  We’re collating it into a playlist, so keep an eye on the embedded video below to see the footage!

We’ve now converted the spare room to recording studio and even whilst I am busy typing this Jonny is laying down  a guitar part for a new song.  I’ve got the job of turning the click off at the right time for the ritenuto at the end.  I’ve got the video camera by my side and we’ll be documenting the process with a video blog, watch this space!

We do have a couple of gigs this month, the most exciting one being playing for International Bagpipe Day at the Pitt Rivers museum in Oxford on Saturday 9th March.  I’m presenting on the Swedish bagpipes, which is really exciting.  I’ve got my presentation all prepped and ready to go.  I should have a draft copy of my new Swedish tune book ready for people to see too. (The real thing won’t be out for another month or two whilst I sort out the ISBN number and send off for duplication).

Anyway, hope to see you soon!

February Gigs

Hello!
We’ve been really busy with “The Whispering Road” over the last couple of weeks and it’s been great fun.  Pop on over to the seriouskitchen website and facebook page to keep up to date with the show tour.  In the quiet moments Vicki has finished the first draft of a book of Swedish bagpipe tunes for G border pipes.  We’re hoping it’ll be ready in time for International Bagpipe Day, but as the final product is hoping to include a CD with the book the chances are slim –  but not impossible!    Whilst on tour with the show we’re also out on the road with the duo, here are the duo dates for this month:

04.02.13 – Tonbridge Folk Club, Tonbridge, Kent
05.02.13 – Ringwood Folk Club, Ringwood, Hampshire
07.02.13 – Lyceum Folk Club of Newport, Newport, Wales
08 – 10.02.13 – Cheltenham Folk Festival, Cheltenham
15.02.13 – Shirley Folk Club, Shirley, Solihull, Birmingham
21.02.13 – Duton Hill Folk Club, Duton Hill, Essex

Hope to see you at either one of these or on the Whispering Road.

Links and Stuff

Hello!
The new structure of the website has meant that some of the links are sort of broken. Everything is still here, so if you’ve got to the site and can’t find what you’re looking for, drop us a line from the contact page and we’ll either fix the link or show you where it is.

New Website Launched

Hello!
We’ve worked really hard over Christmas and we’ve just finished the new website.  Ok, it looks a little like the old one, but it’s a complete overhaul underneath the bonnet.  Hopefully we’ve fixed all the gremlins, but if you find any drop us a line!

Busy building our new website…

Hello and Happy Christmas!
We’re out in Sweden having a really, really wonderful white christmas with family.  No space to bring our instruments with us this time, so we’re busy rebuilding our website.  It’ll probably look much the same by the time we’ve finished it, but we’re now powering it with wordpress.  So if you catch this site before we move the web address over, watch as each page gets populated.  We’re loving the blog plugin, the shop plugin and hoping for a good giglist plugin too.  In the mean time, hope you’re all having a great Christmas!

🙂
Vicki & Jonny
