Great gig - birthday party!

Last weekend I played at the most fantastic birthday party. Why was it so fantastic? Great people and great venue, but the most memorable thing for me was how much thought had been put into proceedings (not to mention the great beer from the local craft ale brewer, who was at the party). Luckily the weather behaved (mostly) so it all took place outside - there was an area for dancing at one end of the garden and I was playing around a camp fire, with everyone sitting on straw bales, at the other. The organisers were looking for plenty of Bob Dylan songs (among others) and someone who could play the harmonica, so I fitted the bill pretty well. Once the younger guests had done with dancing, everyone descended on the camp fire just as I was beginning 'Don't Look Back In Anger' which was followed by such classics as 'American Pie', 'Blowin' In The Wind', 'Ruby Tuesday', 'Hotel California', 'House Of The Rising Sun', even 'Dancing Queen' - what a buzz! A really memorable gig....
