We left the house and the rain was pouring down, with thick waterproof winter coats and waterproof boots on we headed over to the beach. We parked a short walk away from the beach but by the time we had walked to the entrance of the beach and down the 133 gruelling steps we were pretty damp. We headed straight to the bar and then met our friends and were chatting, laughing and drinking whilst waiting for the evening’s entertainment.

As 9pm arrived so did Newton Faulkner on stage and started with a classic song from his earlier days and instantly had the crowd fixed. Song after song he was wonderful and really did get those toes tapping and everyone singing along.

He played his own rendition of Justin Bieber Sorry, Bohemium Rapsody by Queen and of course his epic version of Teardrop by Massive Attack plus loads of his own original new and old songs.
When I think about it everything was going against the evening being a success, forgetting lyrics, forgetting how to play and the pouring rain but somehow it was one of the best gigs I have been to and was the perfect way to spend a soggy evening with good friends and good memories on the beach in Cornwall.
