I have some exciting news – last night I got roped into playing at a talent show/quest thing. It was a fundraiser for a friend who is moving to Scotland. The event was aptly names “The Hottish Scottish Talent Show” which I think was kinda cute :-).
So I turned up at the Harbour Light armed with a chord chart for my guitarist who I had not yet met and wondering if I should have really learned the lyrics better. A guitarist named Andy came to my rescue and we had a quick practice out the back to make sure we wouldn’t embarrass ourselves. I was still scared. And I still didn’t know the lyrics! Argh. The show began and I sang, Andy guitared, people listened which was a bonus – and they actually seemed to like it! So I decided I would do another song, this time accompanying myself on the keyboard. And it was over. Phew – I didn’t embarrass myself!
Fast forward to the end of the show: Everyone voted on their favourite acts and I got voted one of the top two acts and won a sweet prize! I really feel like a kid. “Mummy, Daddy I won! I won! Did you see me? I won!” Haha – my Mum and Dad were actually there.
