Crawfish, Schnapps And Song

By Ginger | August 15, 2009

If anyone has a more sociable method of dining than the Swedish then they’re keeping it a secret.

The show (which was sublime, by the way) included my set, many more players following, then I guested with Esther Rose Parkes on Am I The Only One Who Ever Felt This Way and finally got up for the finale to growl through Rocking In The Free World with the entire bill performing. A truly brilliant moment. After being presented with a bottle of champagne each onstage (thanks Maria Anderberg) we retired to the country house where the wonderful Maria Blum and family cooked crawfish and drank schnapps (each drink precluded by a drunken Swedish song). I can’t remember ever eating anything better than crawfish. Delicious doesn’t even scratch the surface.

All in all as perfect a day as I’ve ever had.

And singing onstage only to look around and see Maria McKee smiling behind me, sharing the chorus, is a memory that is indelibly etched into my consciousness. 

Off to Malmo today for more fun ‘n games today. I absolutely LOVE Sweden.
