My boyfriend Aled and our good friend Mel have been meaning to put on a gig together for a good few years. Finally, after many months of organising, their first gig took place on Thursday. Under the name The Homespun Tip, a great line up of folk and acoustic music was planned for a favourite venue of ours, The Slaughtered Lamb in Clerkenwell. Headlining were CoCo and the Butterfields, with support from Patch and the Giant, Charlotte Carpenter and Andrew Butler. The gig was a success, the music was amazing, and the basement venue was rather packed by the end, and the thanks for this goes mainly to the stellar effort of our friends.
I found it quite tricky to photograph the gig, as it was quite dark (like most live music photography, obviously) and my skills in manual mode are still developing. Although the photos aren't necessarily sharp, I quite like the dark and grainy effect. Let's pretend that was intentional!
