Gavin Bryars at 70
January 17, 2013

Wednesday January 16th was my 70th birthday, which was spent quietly. Anya is in Russia working on her film, Mashka is away at university, so there was just Yuri and I at home. Each Wednesday at 7 PM the fish and chip van comes to our village. And my friend Brian Morton, with whom we always spend New Year on the West coast of Scotland, had given me a unique personal bottling of a Longrow single malt whisky from the Campbeltown distilleryfor this occasion… such is life in an English village…
