Noo Yoik

Katie’s foody foray “One thing that never disappoints when we tour to the USA is the food. From enormous pepperoni pizzas to racks of BBQ ribs, clam chowder in Boston to ‘grits’, the savoury corn-based porridge popular in the mid-Western and Southern states, there is always something to surprise even the most well-travelled of tastebuds….

Celebrating a Fabulous 50th

Becky blogs in Boston “Our first full day of the tour saw us celebrate our fiftieth concert in the US! We awoke to brilliant sunshine and blue skies – well, most of us woke first in the very early hours of the morning, as the day was beginning back at home, but managed to doze off…

Cinema in the Sky

London to Boston: a round-up from Ben, and a few words from Stile Antico’s in-flight film critics “As big travel days go, yesterday was pretty good. We breezed through Terminal 5, British Airways delivered us on time and no one was interrogated by a border officer on arrival. For most of us, the one redeeming…

At Home with Thomas Ashby Vann

Florida is nothing compared to Helen’s little ray of sunshine! “While the others are jetting off stateside I’m sadly going to be left at home holding the baby. Literally. Thomas was born on the 6th of February so he’s exactly a month old today, and we thought that might be a little early to inflict…

The Phoenix flies again!

Kate shares some thoughts on the programme we’ll be performing. “On this tour, for the first time ever on a States trip, we will be taking just one programme – The Phoenix Rising. It is always a real pleasure to repeat the same programme in different venues, especially when it is packed full of some…

Two Days and Counting…

Will looks forward to a landmark US concert… “So, here we go again!  This Thursday sees Stile Antico head across the big pond for our 9th tour of the US.  It’s something we all look forward to very much, since we always receive a warm reception from audiences, hosts, and cabin crew; it’s wonderful to…

All over bar the lobster

Last night’s concert at the University of New Hampshire brought to an end our ten-day visit to the US.  We celebrated with some excellent wines courtesy of Bill Kempster at UNH, and then travelled down to Boston this morning for our flight home.  After three happy hours spent eating lobster and riding the water taxi…

Duck! Baby on Board

Stile Antico’s newest blogger puts the world to rights… “Well hello there y’all! I am nearly at the end of my grand tour of the States, so thought it was about time I let you know how I am getting on.  As you probably know, I was lucky enough to win the recent World’s Bonniest…

Hello, Cleveland!

Eleanor sends the following dispatch from the back of her getaway vehicle… “Like the previous day, today involved a lot of driving, and, apart from the small matter of a concert, not an awful lot more. As we headed from Cleveland to Pittsburgh with a few post-concert beers and snacks in hand, I quizzed my…

Poetry in Motion

Becky’s blog takes a novel form! “Since today’s chief objective was to cover 460 miles on the road between Vermont and Erie, our stopover point on the way to Cleveland, there is not much to report.  In order to avoid a dull travelogue, I decided to write this blog as a series of haiku poems….

Turkeys in the Mist

Emma enjoyed our second day in glorious Vermont… “Early risers this morning might have spotted some unusual fauna in the Vermont hills: a group of wild turkey, hotly pursued through the mist and frost by a lesser-spotted Andrew clad in summery shorts and grasping his camera.  Glancing up from his coffee cup, James was heard…

Autumn in Vermont

Helen clearly enjoyed our first day in beautiful Vermont! “After Monday night’s torrential rain, we were all pleased to wake up to clear skies yesterday morning and a beautiful crisp autumn day. Perfect weather for a walk in the woods! After a wander round St Johnsbury, most of which seemed to be closed for the…
