pedal folk preparing for ‘in pursuit of spring’ tour

Tim and Chance rehearsing sm

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 –

So Pedal Folk, the cycling music tour I am doing late April is now all sorted and we will be ending our two wheeled jaunt by performing at Folk Weekend Oxford which I am super excited about.

I will be playing with Tim Graham and Katie Stone Lonergan on Sunday 21st April at Cafe 1071 at 3pm. There may be bubbly to celebrate the end of the tour.

songs & whispers tour with ‘she makes war’ and cajita

***UPDATE*** i have sadly had to withdraw from this tour but will be going to germany, holland and belgium in the autumn instead


In July I am off on a four week tour of Holland, Belgium and Germany with music promoter Songs & Whispers.

Also sharing the bill with me are the brilliant and lovely She Makes War and Cajita, who came by today for what mainly turned out to a 90’s nostalgia fest!

Although I have no proof, Lisa Loeb, Belly, Radiohead, Longpigs and Smashing Pumpkins sing-a-longs were the order of the day… If you are planning on coming along to see us on tour, you have been warned!
