NEWS FROM JOHN | 27 JUNE 2019

Dear folks,

Your support these past twelve months has been wild.  Thank you!  I’m really pleased to tell you that this September, I’ll head back out on the road for some intimate shows in the UK & Ireland, with special guests to be announced along the way!  I’m excited to get back on tour and play these songs for you, as they’ve evolved into new forms, beyond the album recordings… I’ll also try out some new tunes, before I commit them to tape.  It’s always good to see if you guys like them, before I put them on an album! 

A few weeks back I received my first invitation to Schwangri-La to play some tunes and build a new pedalboard with Dan & Mick at That Pedal Show.  The reception was warm and friendly and I entered Geek Heaven with a smile on my face. 

You can check out our special here.

I also donated a track to the Fylde Guitars compilation ‘Strings That Nimble Leap’, featuring everyone from Nic Jones to Lisa Hannigan & Graham Coxon.  All the profits are going to music-related charities - you can get your copy at fyldeguitars.com.

Summer has begun in earnest (though not according to the British weather report, apparently) and I’m gearing up for action as we head into July.  I’ll be heading to Austria for Arbogast Folk Festival, before returning for a one-off show in Blackpool and then joining the Gomez bus to open up on their Liquid Skin celebration tour… then I’m returning to Canada’s Edmonton Folk Festival and visiting Tønder Festivalin Denmark for the first time.  I’ll also be at Purbeck Valley Folk Festival and Folk East here in the UK! 

I hope to see some of you out there.  I also hope to avoid sunburn.  It’s tough out there for gingers mate.

See you along the road xx
