The more observant of you will have noticed a slow down in my creative output since things took off with Three Acres And A Cow.
I’m looking forward to redressing the balance this year and here is the first fruits of that; a recording of ‘Woodman, Spare That Tree’ which will be on my forthcoming album ‘From The Ground Up’.
So last week I did nine shows in eight days including ‘Three Acres And A Cow’ at the International Permaculture Convergence, a Pedal Folk tour and Metal’s Harvest festival. Here are a few photos… now I’m off to dribble in a corner for a couple of weeks whilst I recover!
I will be performing as a duo with the brilliant Chance Kellner on violin at this lovely night in Manor House hosted by Zoe Konez.
I shared a stage with Zoe’s band ‘Cat Bear Tree’ a few months back and they were superb – have a listen to their music here https://catbeartree.bandcamp.com/
This will surely be my last show before Christmas and maybe until April if my winter time plan to hibernate at a meditation centre goes to plan. It would be lovely to see you if you can make it down.
Tuesday December 2nd @ 7.30pm – The Finsbury, 336 Green Lanes, London, N4 1BY – http://www.thefinsbury.co.uk
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/

We did a lovely little gig for Steve at Redbridge Green Fair Music Club in Ilford last Friday.
The venue literally looked like it was the set of a horror flick from the outside but was utterly charming inside as were the audience…
