Charles Jenkins "When I Was On The Moon" Album Launch

08/08/2019

with Suzannah Espie and the Amateur Historians
Spotted Mallard, Sunday 2nd June 2019

I had heard about this a while back and still wanted to go even though I saw the Icecream Hands gig quite recently.

Suzannah hardly ever plays these days so that was another reason.

Leading up to the gig I read about Charles aneurism with surprise like a lot of people. Health issues are especially difficult for artists who often do not have a regular income from their art practice and have to work another job. I know very few people who make their entire income from music. Bob Log III has to tour overseas to make money. I miss Oh Pep! but understand they would not have had the success they now enjoy if they had not gone over to the USA.

As Charles said he finally has an album that sounds like it does on stage as this one is just him on a nylon string guitar. Second set was a band set with all the old favourites.

It was quite the social occasion with all the old regulars from his gigs and even Rodd who got the front table.
