  • Leigh Folk Festival on now ...

  • I've put a little EP/album together with my band, definitely folk/americana-y, if anyone fancies listening it's here on spotify and here on bandcamp.

  • Arguably, the EP and mini-album together make an album. :)

  • Very enjoyable.

  • Thanks! It's recorded live and far from the polished studio effort I might have liked but it's a good reflection of what our gigs sound like and the songs we've written over the past couple of years! Now to write some new ones....

  • We have a gig. Hopefully. 28th October at the Black Heart in Camden - much larger venue repurposed with socially distanced benches to hold max 45 people. Refunds in the event of greater restrictions etc:­rs-2-sets-ltd-capacity-show/the-black-he­art/1663395

  • Very good, I've clearly misunderstood the 'rule of six' if such gatherings are possible. I thought 'social gatherings' also included gigs.

  • Has anyone listened to this

    Shirley Collins’ latest album. Quite an amazing piece of work and remarkable tone to her voice.

  • I'm not 100% myself, but they're limiting any bookings to <6 and will sit everyone in the groups they booked with at appropriate social distances. It's a big venue, so with 45 people will be plenty of space. But yeah, I can only assume they have looked into it fully and determined it can be done within the guidelines....

  • I just listened to the Moine Dubh series the late Andrew Weatherall produced back in 2015 (@dancing james put me on to it when they released). It's five singles of songs, folk-derived. One is obviously a pseudonym of Andrew, kind of kitcsh pastiche of Americana referencing Native American aesthetic, so on very shaky ground in many ways. But, of course, it's great. There's a kind of Essex Country pretending-to-be-american vibe to some of them, yet there's something rather magical about them all, especially now he's gone.

    Can't believe I only listened to it once or twice back in 2015, and now I'm getting into it. I guess buying records does that to you, stuff sometimes gets lost in the pile for a while.

  • Playing with my band The Embers at the Green Note in Camden, next Friday, if anyone was looking for something to do...­he-embers/

  • Bit too far away for me unfortunately (Sheffield).
    Do you have any new material coming out at all? I really like Lie Upon The Water.

  • Thanks mate! Lovely to hear. We have new songs, hoping to record and release before too long, realistically likely to be Spring 2022... will post in here.
