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 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/

Here are a few choice pictures from our epic weekend at Leigh Folk Festival – still my favourite festival of the year and this years was a stonker.
Wow, that was the best musical experience of my life.
We just cycled from Bath to Oxford gigging on the way with stop offs in Bristol and Swindon – pure unadulterated joy.
