On Saturday I did a short set at TLS Frankfurt‘s Shared Stage event. It was my public performance in about three years, so I was quite rusty. But it was a lot fun nonetheless. Who knows, it may even spur me on to try and play some more!

Cheers to TLS for giving me (and the other acts) the opportunity to perform. And to those in attendance for the warm welcome and response.
