A little Walthstow concert to start 2017

cafe-front hornbeam-stowfest-sat-night1dsc_0051a

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!

***STOP PRESS*** as of 3rd February, this event is now sold out.

To mark the completion of my fourth album ‘More Than Today‘, I have gathered the musicians I worked with recording the album together for a special one-off show at Green Note in Camden next month.

I have asked Effra and The Heartlands to join me for the evening, both are excellent bands who I am looking forward to sharing a stage with muchly.

The venue is quite small so please buy tickets in advance – it would make me super sad to have anyone turned away on the night.

songs from the shed

Whilst down in Somerset, Basia, Candy, Caitlin and I popped by to visit Jon, AKA Songs From The Shed (http://www.songsfromtheshed.com/)
He has had all manner of brilliant musicians come and perform for him over the years – do check out his site or youtube channel to see more.

Here is our performance of ‘The Finchley Waltz’ – enjoy…
