There was something so impressive about the Lincoln Cathedral (in Lincoln, UK) that my normal cathedral numbness was replaced by the serious intention of going to church the next morning to hear what a religious service and a real, live choir sounded like in such an epic building.
Alas, I forgot how early church starts and I instead joined the church-goers for post-service coffee (at quite possibly the only decent coffee joint in the entire country – Coffee Aroma).
Given how much pleasure it gave me to read all the submissions to my first ever Caption That Photo! Contest, I’ve decided to hold another one.
The latest photo to be captioned is a glorious post-show portrait of Miss Quincy that I captured the other night at the ever-glamorous Travelodge.
Just like last time, leave your oh-so-clever caption as a comment at the bottom of this post. Whoever creates the best caption will win a wee prize in the form of a good ol’ fashioned postcard being sent to him/her from somewhere along our Euro adventure. This edition of Caption That Photo! will remain open for one week – until next Sunday, Feb 27th when the Grand Master Captioner will be crowned from Amsterdam.
Without further ado, here’s the photo in question:
Miss Quincy at The Ironworks in Oswestry, England.
Someone has a heart-on for their electric guitar.

Behold a small series of photos that upon first gaze may appear like your standard Brighton beach shots … but upon closer inspection may reveal such mysteries as a couple making out way over yonder in the rain dusk, a flock of feathered soldiers about to descend upon the ice cream licking pier-goers, or Mister Quincy and his right-hand lady Righty getting undressed and re-dressed during a hard day’s photoshoot (to learn more about Mister Quincy click here).
Little did Miss Quincy and her left-hand man Lefty know when they set out on their tour of the UK and Europe to promote Miss Quincy’s latest album Your Mama Don’t Like Me that they had a doppelganger duo hot on their tails hatching a villainous plan to upstage them.
The dastardly duo in question is Mister Quincy and his right-hand lady Righty who are currently on tour in the UK and Europe promoting Mister Quincy’s latest effort Your Daddy Don’t Like Me.
Miss Quincy & Tyler Toews’ studio session on Phil Brown’s show The Drift (on BBC Radio Lancashire).

Deep in Hedley & Lynn Jones’ backyard in Wombwell, Barnsley lies an absolute one of a kind venue – their tiny & beautiful garden log cabin.
Holding a mere 35 people, The Wheelhouse has staged dozens of intimate house-concert-style performances by some of the best British & North American acoustic/folk/roots artists in the business. Anyone who knows me knows how big of a gushing heart-on I have for house concerts, and it’s a real treat to find folks doing this sort of thing across the Atlantic too.
This particular night is also notable for the fact that Miss Quincy was puking (car)sick all the way to the show but still managed to put on her boots & hat and blow the doors off the cabin.
Welcomed to The Wheelhouse by a Canadian flag flying overhead:
The Wheelhouse by day:
Last weekend we were welcomed into a wonderful & quirky home in Milnsbridge, Huddersfield for a Better Than Telly house concert.
Jac & Bar (check out Bar’s music here) are the sort of fantastic folks I wish had a teleporter so they could attend all our potlucks, gatherings, costume parties, and house concerts at home in Canada. They have a knack for making you feel instantly comfortable and for bringing together eclectic people – I don’t know where else you could wile away an evening listening to live living room music, watching magic tricks, and drinking home-brewed beer with true modern day political songwriters, trapeze artists, musicians, children’s entertainers, puppeteers, and fox hunting saboteurs.

Perhaps my new favorite subject – rainy European city streets at dusk.
Photos below are from an electric evening stroll through Leeds that all but cleared my heavy jet-lagged head.
