Here is a fantastic review of my London album launch show at the Green Note in Camden thanks to Folkradio.co.uk –
It was a fantastic night.
While I was down south I was invited to do a session at the legendary Bob Harris’ home with his son Miles Harris for an Under The Apple Tree podcast. You should be able to see this around the middle of June here – http://wbbc.biz/
There’s some exciting news to come on a future session.
Into The Sea continues to pick up rave reviews. I’m over the moon with the reaction to the album. If you don’t have a copy yet it’s available from all the usual outlets and also directly from me via the website.
Something I’m looking for your help with is my Kickstarter campaign to help make a video for the next single Up On The Hill. Me and my dog Alfie are hoping to go up on the hill with some of his furry buddies to make the film. Find out how to get involved by watching the short information film here. Really appreciate your support with this – https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/106649213/up-on-the-hill
It should be a fun thing to do and if you want your own dog to be in the video let me know via the campaign page. Thanks.
Well that’s almost it for now.
Remember that if you want to see me play in your area and know of a venue I may not have heard of then drop me a line with the details or you could also consider hosting your own House Concert. It’s very easy to do and can be a fantastic experience. If you have any questions about hosting a House Concert then ask away.
I hope you get some early summer sun wherever you are and that I see you down the road somewhere soon.
Thanks again for all your support.
Cheers for now.
