Please note

(1) that the date previously announced for 4 May in Syracuse is not taking place, apologies for the confusion; there is an additional gig added to the tour on Thu 26 May in Northampton MA.

(2) that some gig database sites (Songkick in particular) were showing incorrect data, in particular referring to (and picturing!) a DIFFERENT Dave Lambert! We think this has now been corrected.

(3) that the start time of shows is not always 8.00pm.
