Westhampton, Long Island show, 6/20/10. As you can see from this entry into the blog, I will be working backwards to get all the news from the tour in the correct order, so here we go.

After the excitement of the Procol Harum shows it was time to prepare for our tour with the Steve Hackett band. We arrived in Westhampton the day before the show as it was quite a trek for all of us. The show day was sunny and we were greeted by a beautiful Long Island town, quiet and unassuming, flowers everywhere and lots of boutiques and healthy places to eat! The venue was a lovely theatre with very helpful and friendly staff. This was our fist day meeting Steve and his band! What great people and musicians too…..particularly Steve, who I know you will all know from his days with ‘Genesis’. He can make his guitar sing! It was truly a great opening night for both bands with a very appreciative audience. We ended our show with Mark Wood (Trans Siberian Orchestra) joining us on violin, for Mother Russia. It was a great ending to our first night. More to come soon.

Peace  and Love Annie
