Delighted that I’ll be spending a Monday night at Lee Rosy’s Tea Room with Pekko Käppi, and Cath and Phil Tyler on 28th October. This will be a blinder, hope to see you there. More details here.
Update 07/09/13 – !!!THIS SHOW HAS BEEN POSTPONED – NEW DATE TO FOLLOW – SORRY FOLK FOLKS!!!
Very excited about this one – Mike Heron was a member of the Incredible String Band, one of my favourite groups of the first wave of psychedelic folk. Here he will be joining Glaswegian folk rock titans Trembling Bells in an evening of classic String Band song. I am honoured to be opening up. Click here for details.
Woolf Music comp now available on Bandcamp. Features a version of ‘Seven Gypsies’ where I accompany the wonderful singing of Ellen Mary McGee. Have a listen to some of what’s going to be happening throughout the weekend. All sales contribute towards the festival!
Woolf Music Weekend – August 17th and 18th 2013
This promises to be a unique and intimate two day event from the people who ran Terrastock Festival back in the day. Set in the idyllic setting of Cleeve House in Wiltshire (with its connections to Virginia Woolf and the Bloomsbury group), this will be a very special two days of music and poetry from the likes of Sharron Kraus, Ellen Mary McGee, Sophie Cooper, Black Tempest, Eric Arn, United Bible Studies, Woodpecker Williams and many more.
Sin Eater Festival Friday 21st June – Sunday 23rd June
Three days of music in a brew pub in Shropshire. I think this is the strongest line up I have ever been a part of. I would be excited to be on a bill with any of the people playing, but to be on a bill with all of them is a bit magical. A bargain at £25 and a highly, highly recommended date for your summer diary. There will hopefully be a couple of shows with other Sin Eater artists in the weeks around the festival in London, Nottingham, Cambridge and possibly Leicester.
I’ll be playing in Sheffield, Nottingham and Oxford on a bill with Sharron Kraus. Sharron is a formidable singer and songwriter from the dark side of the folk spectrum, and a Tompkins Square labelmate.
