Singing on Koh Samui and Shanghai

In August 2015, I flew out out to Thailand from Manchester, England. After an overnight in Bangkok, I continued by coach and ferry to Koh Samui, an island off Thailand’s eastern seaboard where I was to work for a month as a volunteer teacher of English.

The part of the teaching I enjoyed most was in the kindergarten where we found songs to be an excellent means of teaching and learning. “No Woman No Cry” and “Have you Ever Seen The Rain?” also went down really well on those couple of occasions when we taught older students.

After Thailand it was on to Shanghai where I was booked to sing at two private functions and while I was there I was asked to do another at the celebrated Jiashan Market.

I have had my Voyage Air (VAOM-2CNA) fitted with an L.R. Baggs M1 Pickup, which has enabled me to take on a wider variety of gigs when I am traveling. It’s great to have a quality instrument readily available when overseas and although it took me a few months to get used to my Voyage-Air, I have grown to appreciate its quality and craft. I also use my Voyage Air when gigging at home.

Keep Music Live!
