Ashland and home

25th November 2019

36,000 feet up in the air and somewhere over the Hudson Bay, we are on our way home. We have turned back from the furthest point on the tour (122° W and thus a third of the way around the globe) after the last gig of the trip in Ashland, ... continued

Provo to Orange Co.

24th November 2019

The day started with an 08.30 departure for our drive to Salt Lake City for our flight to LA. The weather was pretty rough as we departed and there were a fair few bumps on the flight both on the way up and the way down. Not my favourite th... continued

BYU

22nd November 2019

We had a rare morning off, and I began it by eating too much granola. As a relative newcomer to touring life, one thing I’m still learning is how to pace myself at hotel breakfasts. With an empty stomach and effectively unlimited food, I overdo it ti... continued

The American Way

17th November 2019

Day 5 and, for most, the first and last rest day of the tour. Six plucky Tenebrae members (former and current Associate Artists + Jimmy) would give a workshop at the University of Maryland in the afternoon but more on that later! First came the chance t... continued

15th November 2019

By the time we arrived in Maryland, we’d clocked up eighteen hours of coach travel. This has been a really civilised way to start the tour. It’s nice not to be rushing around airports, and to be able to look out of the window and see a... continued

From one Carolina to another

13th November 2019

Day 4 of our tour across the states started earlier for some than others, with a couple of people heading out for an early run across Charleston’s beautiful coast. Luckily for me, the jet lag hasn’t hit too badly, so I enga... continued
