I've just got back from a flying visit to Northumberland, with a day spent at the Rothbury Music Festival. I spent quite a bit of time at the festival as a young 'un, but haven't managed to make it down for the past few years. It was great to go back, have a few tunes, watch the dance displays and competitions, and of course the evening concert at the former cattle mart. Lots of singalongs and familiar favourites! Going up north tomorrow with Admiral Fallow for the third of our group album writing sessions so far this year; I'm sure we'll find time for a barbecue or two, though... Here's an interview I did recently for The List, with a bit more information on what we've been up to recently.

The Folkworks Junior Summer School in Durham is fast approaching! I've been having a good think of tunes and songs to bring, and am really looking forward to what will be an amazing week. I'll be playing a solo set at this concert on the Thursday, too.
