Thread Name: Bothy's new venue
Subject: RE: Bothy's new venue
Excellent club, and I've played there in a few different guises, I can tell you. Good clubs usually have strong resident performers, and the Bothy is a fine example.

Following my first booking there - many years ago and in front of a sparse audience - Clive sent me a handwritten letter a few days later along the lines of: "Thanks for your performance at the Bothy; there may have been only twenty there, but you played like it was a hundred." I've never forgotten that - both the kind gesture and the implied advice.

Best of luck in the new venue (I hope to see it sometime!).
