No sooner had I got home from touring with Revere and Toumani Diabate then I was back out again to spend an afternoon filming and recording a live track with one of my favourite DIY musicians – Laura Kidd, aka She Makes War.
Although my first challenge of the day was simply getting out of bed (So. Very. Tired…) the second challenge was getting the harp onto a boat – the stunning Miloco Lightship95 – via a steep drawbridge and some even steeper stairs:

Engineer Jarred (yes, the same one who engineered the Revere/Toumani Diabate session on Saturday!) gets to work:
Laura, Milly and I recorded a live version of the track Butterflies, from the upcoming She Makes War album, and were filmed from every angle. I can’t wait to see what it looks like!
