***STOP PRESS*** as of 3rd February, this event is now sold out.

To mark the completion of my fourth album ‘More Than Today‘, I have gathered the musicians I worked with recording the album together for a special one-off show at Green Note in Camden next month.

I have asked Effra and The Heartlands to join me for the evening, both are excellent bands who I am looking forward to sharing a stage with muchly.

The venue is quite small so please buy tickets in advance – it would make me super sad to have anyone turned away on the night.

december gigs in essex, oxford and crouch end

So I should probably be starting to hibernate by now but the year has thrown up a little flurry of winter gigs in Essex, Oxford and Crouch End. I will be performing with Chance and Candy on violin and backing vocals respectively..

The Essex show on Friday 6th December is for a much loved promoter who books me for gigs in libraries, gardens, town centres and …this time …the local RAF Club… awesome. More info <here>.

Then Saturday 14th December at a beautiful old pavilion surrounded by green in Oxford – info <here> ***please note this show has been postponed to 2014***

…and finally on Sunday 15th December this lovely weekly event in Crouch End – info <here>

bg-header59

I’ve just confirm a show at a cosy spot in Crouch End called The Haberdashery for the lovely London promoters ‘Before The Gold Rush‘ on Wednesday 2nd October.

It will be the first London sit down gig type thing with a wonderful Canadian violinist called ‘Chance’ I met busking a few weeks ago – we have been out and about doing a few festivals so should be nicely rehearsed by October. Candy is joining us so there may possibly be some three part harmonies… #excited

leigh folk festival 2013

I am totally chuffed to be playing at The Leigh Folk Festival this summer. I went along last year to see my disgustingly talented friend Tim Graham play and had an absolute blast.

It is the biggest free folk festival in Britain; a super fun long weekend by the sea with music taking over the whole of the town.

I will be playing at 11.55am on Sunday 30th June and be joined by at least two other brilliant musicians and maybe more if i am lucky.
