As we battle the jet lag back in London, here’s Becky with the final instalment of our tour blog!

Here’s Andrew’s blog about a memorable few days in South Korea.

Yesterday’s concert in the wonderful Sala de Conciertos at the Biblioteca Luis Ángel Arango in Bogotá rounded off a memorable two week tour in North and South America. We took a few minutes to look back over our favourite moments of the trip.

As the US leg of our tour came to an end (we’ll be back in October!), we asked the departing Matthew to write about our time in our now-familiar haunts of Boston and NYC.
