The Empty Shed Experience
THE EMPTY SHED ORIGINS
The roots of " The Empty Shed Experience " were sown when Ron began playing again with his guitar pupils at his small music shop (SHED) " Sticks & Picks " in South West Wales. There followed a few small intimate evenings of pupils and Ron (with young pupil Ed Norton on Bass ) sharing their music with friends and family in a local pub. From this grew "PlAnK pRoMoTiOnS".....a small series of gigs sharing original songs in inclusive evenings for performers and audiences alike. The growing support led to a larger, one off "Solstice at the Cinema" event. Opening the show "The Empty Shed Experience" (several pupils and Ron) made their debut .
As part of the promotion of the Solstice event, Ron was invited by Stuart Loosemore and Andy Boyt to play live and promote the event on Radio Tircoed's "The Acoustic Program". Eileen & Amy provided impromptu backing vocals and had so much fun they all agreed to "Just Carry On." An invitation by Ron to Eileen and Amy to accompany him and his pupils at the "Solstice at the Cinema" ensued and the rest is, as they say, history.
The E.S.E are now all writing, sharing and recording ideas / songs / lyrics / instruments.. and loving every minute of it.
