By the ski slopes of Wittenburg….

Alpine fun in the flat North German countryside......

First gig of the concert season for BC Sweet saw us heading over to Germany. Now, Wittenburg is a small Hamlet east of Hamburg in the North, and the countryside is fairly flat, but our venue sat beside a huge indoor ski slope, and adjoining Swiss chalet style hotel. These slopes are amazing, as you look through the window, it really seems like an alpine resort in there.

Have guitar, will travel

We were very well looked after, and it was great to get back onstage with the guys after the winter break. But it nearly didn’t happen. The ash cloud still spewing out of the Icelandic volcano was coming perilously close to both UK and Spanish airports, and indeed, the day before I was due to fly, airports here were closed as far East as Granada.

From the outside, one can see the huge construction required to simulate a ski slope

These gig weekends can get pretty tiring – early mornings, hanging around in airports, late nights etc. I flew 4 flights in 36 hours, going

Alicante -Palma-Hamburg-Munich-Alicante.

The day after we all flew home (the lads flew into Heathrow)  – Heathrow was closed!   So we were very lucky to get the job done and get home safely!

It promises to be an interesting year for BC Sweet – for a number of reasons, and we’re looking forward to the challenge.
