This man – Henry Wagons – and his band are heading off to the USA and Canada soon. I recommend going to see them. Last Friday night was the second time I’ve seen Henry Wagons (solo) and I loved it.
When we arrived I had to get out my credit card to prove I’d bought tickets. I also wanted to get out my camera because Henry was at the desk. I put my just purchased chocolate stout on the desk and was immediately told off because I’d just put it on his merchandise – a tea towel. I don’t think he told me off, but my girlfriend did. I was mortified. Of course it left a teeny little stain.
I asked if he still minded if I took a photo and he was very gracious and allowed me to. See above. I felt a wee bit guilty about not buying the stained tea towel and probably would have bought it on the way out but someone else had.
It was a great show because there weren’t heaps of people crowding us and we had a very good view. I’m so glad I went. He’s a great entertainer and aside from the music, the inter-song chat was excellent.
