golden hour book and cd vol. ii

golden hour

My good friend Ryan Van Winkle and his friends at The Forest Cafe in Edinburgh are releasing their second poetry and music compliation this week. I have a track on the cd which I am hoping to receive in the post soon.

Here is the link to the official website with full info –

If you are in the area and have some free time this friday you should head down to Blackwells for the launch. Hopefully they will do a London launch some time soon too.

At Blackwells on South Bridge, Edinburgh
Friday – Sept. 25th – 6.30pm – 8pm
– Readings by Aiko Harman, Alan Jamieson, Alan Gillis, Julia Boll and Andrew Philip.

followed by:
THE After Party / CD Launch

another wonderful bill from the delightful kevin molloy and friends – i can’t wait to see fiona bevan and roxy rawson play again



…as you can see these are all pretty local to me – if you want me to come and do a show near you (or perhaps in your front room?) please hollar – i have just done a house gig in hampshire and it was divine!
