I always enjoy live gigs, but big highlights included Burt Bacharach, Courtney Barnett, Hinds, La Femme, The Moody Blues and my finally seeing The Who at Glastonbury.
Rae Morris at The Electric Brixton, Courtney Barnett at The Forum and Jools & His Orchestra at the Royal Albert Hall were also very special times.
There are already bookings in place for five gigs between next February and November.
Bring on 2016!
