Blog: The Grapes

< previous next >
I hate cancelling gigs at the best of times, and especially this time, but I've just emailed the people organising the gig I was going to be doing at The Grapes on August 31st to tell them I can't now go - last week my lovely Grandad died and the funeral's scheduled for the 31st, and I don't think I'll feel much like doing a gig afterwards!

It was obviously all a bit sad with Grandad, but I did see him the weekend before last, and it was pretty clear that he was ready to go, and he was well looked after right to the end, so though it's still a bit of a shock to realise he's gone, at least it seems like the natural thing to have happened. Anyone who's read this for a while will know I've had a bit of a hard time over the past couple of years losing both my Nans, both of whose deaths were less dignified than they deserved, so at least this time it's not as horrible and upsetting. Just like with them though, I did spend a lot of time growing up with my Grandad and I'm going to miss him just as much.

So yes, I had a think about it and tried to work out a way i COULD do the gig, as I hate letting people down, but realised that it just wasn't going to work out. Sorry about that, if you were coming, but I know Pocketbooks and Pete will be FANTASTIC (they were over the weekend), and I'll be back in Sheffield very soon afterwards!
