Happy new year. I hope wherever you find yourself on this bright and frosty morning (at least it’s frosty here in Somerset), that you’re well and things are alive with promise. After a restful month off the road (decorating, Christmas-ing, drinking, Game Of Thrones-ing, practicing, more decorating) I’m going back on tour this week. I’m ready for it!
There are a few exciting things on the horizon -
I’m returning to Celtic Connections for the John Martyn Tribute. Danny Thompson called me and asked what I was doing January 27th… I said ‘whatever you tell me to do’, so that’s where I’ll be; singing a few for Big John.
Playing at Folk Alliance International in Montreal, which gathers the international folk scene for a weekend.
Releasing Hummingbird worldwide (stay tuned for more details!!)
And touring in the United States in support of the great Peter Mulvey
This tour will take me from the UK to Canada to Germany and Austria via Norway, Sweden and Denmark… and finally to the USA. I’d love to see you at a show!
Find tickets on the SHOWS page.
Do you ever become obsessed with a song and can't put it down? I have two Spotify playlists for you…
Traveller’s Shoes is where I share the songs that have kept me safe and sane on the road and at home.
Hummingbird Inspiration is a new playlist of my own influences, with some of their own versions of classic folk songs.
You can visit my Spotify profile to check out both of these playlists!
That’s it from me. All the best and Happy New Year folks!
