Here are a few choice pictures from our epic weekend at Leigh Folk Festival – still my favourite festival of the year and this years was a stonker.

moodmixes and magnatune

I have had my music on the magnatune website for over a year now and they have been awesome, handling all of my music licensing stuff and generally being the most ‘on it’ and accountable crew I work with.

You can hear loads of music on their site which you might not find elsewhere – it is all curated by one guy called John who has great and eclectic taste!

They are currently in the business of starting a website to provide music for businesses and restaurants called moodmixes which you should check out too.

the floating cinema and the docklands bell

I had a lovely day yesterday collaborating with Sam Lee on a musical commission for ‘A Smaller Sound, A Bigger Crowd:  A Film Installation and Performance by Ian Giles telling the story of The Docklands Bell’

We are both going to be floating about the Thames a week on friday playing the song we wrote to Ian’s lyrics, with Sam singing and me playing some appalachian dulcimer – see here for more info – http://www.floatingcinema.info/events/#events-38
