After a succesful album and tour in 1990, The Notting Hillbillies played a few concerts between 1993 and 1996. On Saturday 3rd July 1993, Mark Knopfler, Brendan Croker and Steve Phillips did a charity gig at the Town & Country Club in Leeds. The concert was a charity show for Kirkstall Valley Campaign and the three men played a very interesting acoustic set of 19 songs.  A few days later The Notting Hillbillies did another charity concert for the Swan Hunter shipyard. Guy Fletcher was not available that day and instead Alan Clark played keyboards. A soundboard recording was made of this show, but was never officially released. In 1994, another one-off charity show was played at the Grosvenor House Hotel. And in 1996, The Notting Hillbillies played a one-off show at Mosimann's. It was a private show for Renault with just 80 seats of 200 per ticket. Most likely also a charity show. And in September 1996, another charity concert was played in Sheffield.
