What an incredible few days I had at Monnow Valley Studios near Monmouth! We got so much done! Not sure how that happened as we spent half our time laughing (mainly at Pete) :-) The setting over there is stunning - it's a farmhouse, right by a river and with various fluffy chickens clucking about the place. The studio is fantastic - we had two really skilled and speedy engineers to help us with everything and unbelievably we got everything we'd planned done! The lovely Kate Southall came to join us for a bit to take some fabulous photos, some of which are already loaded on my gallery page, but plenty more to come :-) there are also loads on my Facebook Page 'Hattie Briggs Music' for you to check out, and I'll be tweeting stuff at regular intervals. It's all starting to sound really good (though I do say so myself) and I'm soooo excited about getting the rest of it done! "Fields of Gold" is going to be a real cracker! We recorded the whole thing in one take, just me and two cellos in a room, magical! Don't forget that the album is available to preorder along with loads of other cool stuff on my 'New Album' page.

Don't forget that I've got some really awesome gigs coming up! On May 31st at 1pm I'm on the BBC introducing stage at Wychwood Festival, Cheltenham :-) it's my first BBC introducing stage so I'm very excited about that one AND apparently the sun will be out on Saturday! Then on June 2nd I'm off up to Harrogate in Yorkshire to play at Harrogate Festival at 12:30pm. And there's more! You can celebrate if you're local to Stroud because I'll be performing as a trio with Henry and Asha at the STROUD SUBROOMS on June 20th at 8pm :-) I suggest you book tickets for that one as they are going pretty fast - head to my events page for the link! Don't be afraid to come and have a chat if you come to a gig!
Keep checking my gallery page and Facebook for more photos.
See you soon I'm sure.
