Spring tour with Emmy the Harp and Amy Bowles

I am excited, nervous and a whole host of other emotions, to announce that I will be out on the road doing some shows singing my songs in a few months time.

After a decade of largely focussing my artistic energies on Three Acres And A Cow, the time has finally ripened to return to live performance of my own songs. If the stars line up, I will also be releasing some new music to coincide with this.

Performing with me will be Emmy the Harp, playing harp and flute and Amy Bowles on guitars. They are both old friends and very talented musicians who I am very lucky to have working with me.

The Landworkers’ Alliance album launch

🌱 Just getting back up to speed with computers after playing at the super Landworkers’ Alliance album launch-fest gig in Abergavenny.

Please support this wonderful organisation and buy a copy of this album, so brilliantly curated by Sid Goldsmith and Humphrey Lloyd, which is chock full of protest tunes (inc a reworking of my track The Ballad of Hawkwood)

Forest records birthday gig on Weds 27th April

I am doing a set of songs with Hazel Thompson on Wednesday evening to celebrate the launch of Edinburgh’s Forest Cafe (Forest Happenings) 20th birthday album.

There are some amazing other acts and I imagine it will be as eclectic and gracefully chaotic as ever! I’m on around the 10-10.20pm (BST) mark (ish)




Forest Records 20th birthday album

Forest 20/20 is a new double-sided compilation celebrating 20 years of Forest – Edinburgh’s only volunteer-powered grassroots arts space. Some of my favourite gigs of all time have been at this magic arts and activism space so I was really happy to have a tune included on the album.

Forest 20/20 – much like Forest itself has always been – is an eclectic mix of styles, themes and creativity – from poetry to punk, chiptune to folk tunes – Forest has always had time and space for everyone. I hope you will enjoy the sounds of Forest contained within and find something old that will trigger a memory of good times past and something new to help celebrate the good times still to come:
