A little Walthstow concert to start 2017

I am going to ease myself musically into the new year with a gig in Walthamstow on Thursday 19th January at The Hornbeam, my local community centre. A place brimming with excellent people, tasty seasonal locally grown food, ale, cake and art.

The plan is to do an early set for young families and then a second one later for everyone else. I think Basia and Caitlin are free which means violin and accordion. If anyone could nudge Candy to see if she can come and sing, I’d be grateful!

5.30-6.30pm kids’ kitchen family food time
6.30-7.30pm music family friendly set
8.30-9.30pm music 2nd set for grown ups!

Filming with Ronnie Le Drew

I had the most wonderful day yesterday making a music video down by the river for a new track about climate change called ‘Leave It In The Ground’.

Once again I was working with the amazing puppeteer Ronnie Le Drew, along with the dream team of Alex Swinfen and David Kaplowitz who helped me make my last video for David Cameron.

We have a few more days of filming to go and I look forward to sharing it with you soon.
