Wayne does the UK - June 2005
my 7th trip to the UK and it was a good one. I did my first ever shows in
Scotland and made it as far as 2 hours north of Stirling in the Highlands.
We spent a night in a Scottish castle, drove through parts of Wales, and
generally helped show my son Paul a good time in honor of his graduation from
college. He's decided he's Scottish. I'm not sure how that works, unless it's
because my Viking ancestors pillaged some villages in Scotland and there's some
Scottish blood lurking in his veins.
Thanks to all the folks in England and Scotland who showed us such a jolly good time.
With my son by the Tower Bridge, London
Oysters in Whitstable, Kent. It's an acquired taste...
With Jem and Ella, two of my favorite British Rock Stars - at the Hotel Continental, Whitstable
Part of the Wayne Faust Library at Leeds Castle, Kent. (In my dreams...)
The largest group ever of 'White Supremes' at the show in Whitstable. It was 'Hen Night' for these women, which is the UK's version of a Bachelorette Party.
More Whitstable. I played until 1 AM. Those oysters really do give a guy stamina.
A dinner party in Somerset. The man in the back right is actually a Member of Parliament, so the table talk was interesting to say the least.
The Scottish Highlands. This pic was taken at 11 PM. Summer days are long in Scotland.
A castle in Aberfoyle, Scotland. We stayed here. We didn't see any ghosts.
The view from our room on the Isle of Cumbrae, Scotland.
The show in Millport on the Isle of Cumbrae.
"Wild Mountain Thyme" on the penny whistle. They started singing along during the intro.
My wife, Sally animating Sven Jr on "Dueling Banjos.
Tony West, an excellent veteran Scottish performer who was kind enough to share his stage and following with me in Millport. Thanks, Tony!
