Salisbury Music Awards 2017

Salisbury Music Awards has come round again and we are over the moon that Break Cover has been nominated in a number of categories this year.

We’ve not had the smoothest of years since the last awards. We lost Claire at the beginning of 2017 and spent some of the year as a four piece with first Steve and  then Lea on bass. We had some great support from JC on harp which enabled us to deliver the CD ‘Undaunted’ as well as continue gigging through these changes.

At the beginning of the summer Lea joined the band and more recently Jem joined us too and they have both brought a new energy to the band.

There is a link at the bottom of this post to the 2017 Salisbury Music Awards and we encourage you to take a few moments to vote for your favourites. You’ll need to vote in each category and then click next all the way to the end and then click Vote otherwise none of your selections will be counted.

Voting is open now with the awards being held at Salisbury Arts Centre on Saturday 28 October (while we are playing at The New Inn in Amesbury) so you have a short time to get your votes in.

We have been nominated in the following categories:

Best Guitarist – Simon Dickenson (Break Cover)
Best Bassist – Lea Truckle (Break Cover)
Best Drummer – Craig Butler (Break Cover)
Best Covers Band – Break Cover (Break Cover)

The Crown Inn and The New Inn

A huge thank you to all the people that came out to see us at both gigs this weekend!

The Crown Inn in Ludgershall is a very nicely refurbished pub with a great performance space and the folks loved what we did. And we got to squeeze in some new tunes too. It was extremely warm though – it is nearly October right?

Next up was The New Inn in Amesbury and a change around of the regular line up. Lea took on guitar duties and Dave Hitchins stepped in on bass. We even got JC in for a few tunes on harp too.  It was great to see so many faces in the crowd and also to see old and new friends too! The new songs are now firmly in and went down a storm.

We now have a few weeks off while band members have holidays.

Thanks to those that made it out this weekend and thank you all for your continued support. Looking forward to seeing you again soon!
