Fire In The Mountain festival

FITM2015eflyerReally looking forward to performing at Fire In The Mountain in May.

It is a wonderful little festival set in a beautiful part of Wales which I have heard so much about. They have bands and musicians coming from the USA, Canada, Scotland, Ireland, England and Wales including Appalachian fiddle master Bruce Molsky and Scottish and Irish pipers Ross Ainslee and Jarlath Henderson

I will be performing ‘Three Acres And A Cow, A History Of Land Rights And Protest In Folk Song And Story‘ with Rachel Rose Reid as well as a set of my own songs with Chance Kellner on the violin and backing vocals.

I have just come back from a lovely weekend in Bath rehearsing with Tim Graham and Chance Kellner for the next Pedal Folk tour in April.

We are going to be retracing the London to Somerset route taken by the brilliant wordsmith Edward Thomas in his 1913 cycling trip which he documented in one of his last books ‘In Pursuit Of Spring‘.

Gigs will be in Hackney, Farnham, Winchester, Salisbury, Trowbridge, Glastonbury, and Crowcombe. You can see the map below and the full gig listing here – http://pedalfolk.co.uk/gigs/
