I mentioned about my 2020 trip from where we overwinter in Spain to Berlin for the Country Music Meeting, a place I’ve been regularly going to for the last twenty-two years to perform my songs, in my last post and posted a link to the full story over on my wife and I’s Fair Travels & Fine Times website.
Whilst there and looking for a place to sit and run through a couple of new songs a few years back I found a spot that works perfectly. It’s a concrete stairwell, it has a lovely natural reverb to it and it is part of the building the Meeting event is held in. Only a couple of us knew about it to start with but the sound is so good we passed it on and encouraged a few other of the event’s attending musicians to come play a song or two out there.
We call it The Secret Stairwell and if you come visit the Media & Events Agency booth at the Country Music Meeting, hopefully returning next year after this year’s cancellation due to Covid-19, I’ll show you it and play a song for you. In the meantime though I’ve put together a bunch of songs I’ve played and recorded whilst sat there. It’s a downloadable EP available on Bandcamp called Songs From The Secret Stairwell. CHEERS !!
