Today is a special day of the tour. We’ll be playing in Luzern, Switzerland, where I recorded the new album Colours Of The Night back in May. I had received an invitation to come and stay here for a few weeks, and I was told they would put together a band for me and find a studio. Well, that experience went so well that we decided to take the show on the road, and now I’m touring with the same musicians! So it feels like coming full circle to play in Luzern. On Monday we played in Berlin, where I was reunited with a bunch of old friends. It was almost overwhelming to see so many friends at once. This photo is from that evening, taken by Alexander Schneider.

Today will be our last day in The Netherlands. We’re heading to Utrecht to play at EKKO, a lovely place where I’ve been several times before. Last night we played the Let’s Get Lost festival in Zwolle. When I heard the name of the festival I was immediately reminded of the song Chet Baker used to sing . . . ooooooo let’s get lost . . . So I started our set with a droney violin version of that song. And later I found out the festival was indeed named after that song and the film about Chet Baker, which has the same name. The day before yesterday we played in Middelburg, where I once fell in love with a piano and ended up getting the owners to sell it to me for a remarkably good price (see the cover of Moments Eluding by Greg Haines). And there’s a man in Middelburg who has always organized my shows there, Tonnie Dieleman. Tonnie is about as sweet as they come . . . a real saint of a man. And he makes very pure and honest music under the name Broeder Dieleman. He rode with us in the car to Zwolle yesterday, as he was playing at the festival too, and treated us to a performance on the road with his boomy voice and shruti box. Best road music ever! Here is a sign from the toilet in our bed & breakfast in Middelburg. When I arrived there quite late in the evening and saw this sign, I actually laughed out loud all by myself.

I love ferries. Especially after driving in a van for so long . . . a ferry is a part of the trip in which I can walk around and relax a bit. And the view out on the open sea is just beautiful! Thanks to everyone in Dublin for a wonderful concert last night. It was a funny one. Lots of laughter in the audience, lots of laughter on stage. Tonight we’re playing in Reading, and tomorrow London!

Yep, it’s true . . . I still get a special tingling pleasure every time I see a cat! This little guy we came across at a rest stop in France. I gave him a little piece of ham and he seemed to enjoy it! At that same rest stop we were playing some football, and accidentally kicked the ball on top of a moving car. The man driving didn’t seem very happy about it… Woops! Our last concerts in Spain were really great. Madrid was especially nice, sold out at the little Teatro Del Arte . . . It was a really special atmosphere in there and a very warm and friendly audience. We said goodbye to Sumie after the concert in Barcelona. So lovely to have her along for a few days. I even had the great pleasure of singing a couple songs with her each night. Tonight we’re playing at STUK in Leuven, a fantastic venue run by very sweet people. This show marks the halfway point of our tour.

Last night we had the immense pleasure of playing in Cafe Pop Torgal in Ourense. I played there once four years ago and was really looking forward to returning. It’s a tiny little place, fitting 100 people at the most. The atmosphere is so special. The owners of the place are true music lovers and also really great hosts. After the show we all went out to an epic dinner where they treated us to all the local delicacies. This region in Spain is especially known for the way they prepare octopus from the local waters. And today we’ve crossed over to Portugal, where we’ll be playing at a museum in Bragança . . . one of two cities on this tour which I’ve never been to. The drive today took us on tiny roads through the mountains. The scenery was absolutely stunning. We passed through a couple tiny villages which really felt like going back in time.
