    Win a pair of tickets to this gig!

    Yes, you lucky people, look out shortly for how you could win a pair of tickets to the Nick Harper & Morales/Watts' show here at The Vic in Swindon on Feb 27!

    I am just finalising the finer details now and will post back in the next week or so.

    In the meantime, anyone in the Frome area on Feb 5 might like to pop along to the Merlin Theatre where Morales/Watts are opening for Katherine Williams.

    Tune in Feb 22 and win free tickets!

    On Sunday February 22, Morales/Watts will be live in session on The Late Gig on 105.5FM from 9pm.

    If you haven't heard them before and want a taster of what to expect when they open for Nick at The Vic, Swindon, on February 27 this is a good opportunity.

    PLUS...a pair of tickets to the gig at The Vic will be offered up as a competition prize at the same time! So don't miss out and circle the date on your calendar :)

    Wow, wow, wow, and a thousand times WOW. What a beautiful, and silly, and awe-inspiring, and rude, and WONDERFUL night that was :svengo:Top class banter and the most amazing sounds all in one place, Nick is spoiling us really!

    I am absolutely exhausted but if I give you the setlist you might see why the set was a bit special...

    Two Way Thing (wow!!!)
    Crazy Boy
    Aeroplane
    Before They Put Me in the Ground
    Blue Sky Thinking
    In Our Time
    She Rules My World
    Karmageddon
    There is Magic in This World (complete with loopy-la-la effects and the choir of Harpic angels!!! :svengo: my highlight of the night I think)
    The 38
    Imaginary Friend
    Galaxy Song (restarted at least 2 1/2 times as he forgot the words and everyone shouted them at him haha)
    a tease of the start of Love is Music, but into... Out of It! :blink:
    --
    Stairway to Clapham (formerly Stairway to Peckham LOL)
    a half-hearted attempt at Whisky in the Jar (and someone shouted Parisienne Walkways - HURRAH!!)
    then closing with By My Rocket Comes Fire


    Singing and guitar playing both off the charts as well... I remember closing my eyes as his guitar filled the room at the end of Before They Put Me in the Ground, and just FEELING it. Totally magical. Words pretty much fail me...
