I’m really looking forward to Greenbelt festival next month, the line up looks really good. ‘Duke Special’ and ‘This Is The Kit’ are particular favourites of mine.
Rachel Rose Reid and I are performing ‘Three Acres And A Cow, A History Of Land Rights And Protest In Folk Song And Story‘ at The Canopy Stage, 10am on Monday 31st August. Naomi Wilkins will be joining us too which means some lovely harmonies are in store!
This summer I am totally chuffed to be back at the Leigh Folk Festival again. I will be performing on the Squeezebox Folk Stage at The Scout Hut on Sunday 29th June somewhere around the midday mark – please check the program to confirm this.
It is the biggest and IMHO best free folk festival in the country – I have seen so many brilliant performances there over the last few years – you can get there from London Fenchurch Street station in under and hour… and there is a BEACH. A real beach which you can sit on and eat ice cream.
STIR is an excellent website and magazine that is well worth a read and unpackaged is a shop I love, selling loads of lovely loose goods including the jumbo oats I have for breakfast every day.
These two are combining next week for STIR’s summer edition magazine launch and I will joining them, singing a few songs around 7pm. Do come if you are in the area, see flyer below for more details.
My friend Naomi wrote a lovely article for STIR which can be found online here – http://stirtoaction.com/low-carbon-future/. She is super inspiring and it is a good piece which I highly commend to your eyes and brain.
I am utterly delighted to announce that I will be touring Belgium, The Netherlands and Germany with Songs and Whispers in July and August.
Just putting the gigs on this site took me ages and knackered me out so heaven knows what doing somewhere near thirty shows in just shy of four weeks is going to do to me.
I have put most of them up on my gigs page – some details may change but if you live anywhere west Germany be reassured I will be playing somewhere near you! Below is the fruit of my geeky friday night in with google maps 🙂
