Live Attempts

A little live performance of me playing ‘Fading Rhymes’ from home. Mostly me nodding my head along to the metronome and twiddling the odd knob, but then again it’s not really foot on the monitor, stage diving music.. maybe next time.

Guardian folk album of the month: Future Folk: Friendly Faces; Different Spaces

Blimey! Made a little appearance in The Guardian this morning as The Slow Music Movement’s compilation that I appear on is folk album of the month- The highest profile coverage since I was in Gamesmaster magazine 28 years ago!

It’s a lovely flowing collection, many thanks to James for curating and great to be featured amongst such likeminded artists such as: Alula Down, The Howard Hughes Suite , Geir Sundstøl – sundstoel Scott William Urquhart, Bróna Mcvittie, Avocet Jeffrey Silverstein, Andrew Tuttle, El Conejo, Black Brunswicker, Tracy Chow, Pete Thompson & Me Lost Me.
