I’ve been in conversation with an amazing visual artist, photographer and musician called Stefano Padoan about some future collaborations. He came down to my boat last week for a cuppa and he so loved the setting he got his camera out and a spontaneous photo-shoot ensued.
Do have a peek at his website http://www.stefanopadoan.com and consider him for any photography work you may need.
Peter Marshall from ‘My London Diary‘ took this photo at Rachel Rose Reid‘s Willesden Green Wassail 2017. Turns out that megaphones are super heavy to hold up! I got quite the wrist ache leading this sing-a-long of ‘The Ballad Of Hawkwood’.
Naomi, Rachel and I had the privilege of sharing a stage with Peggy Seeger last month in Oxford during our Three Acres And A Cow show at House of the Commons.
She sang Carry Greenham home and Hey Ho Cooke and Rowe, sharing her personal memories of the Greenham Common Women’s Peace Camp as well as joining us for our rendition of Ewan Maccoll’s The Manchester Rambler about the Kinder Scout mass trespass of 1932.
Since reading Peter Cox’s amazing book Set Into Song, Peggy has been one of my idols, so to meet and perform with her was a delight.
I have been pointing microphones at myself and things close to me quite a bit recently. I thought I might share a couple of photos to show you the sorts of places I record my music. Sounds to follow soon too no doubt! #album #number5
