On Thursday, Sunday Driver played in the bar of the Queen Elizabeth Hall on the Southbank. We were the warm-up act for the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, who were playing a late-night concert as part of the NightShift.
I was a wee bit nervous about the concert, given the high concentration of music boffins at the Southbank. I suffer terribly from imposter syndrome and was convinced a proper clarinet player was going to turn up and expose my flaws. Or at least question whether I’m actually breathing from my diaphragm while wearing a corset (for the record, yes I do…)
It was a really great gig – there were loads of people there – a very appreciative crowd – and many of the punters who were coming out of the earlier concert stayed to watch our set. We sold a few CDs and got booked for another gig, so all in all a very successful evening. And I got to eat a really delicious blackberry meringue from the QEH cafe
