Over the past few months I've been spending a bit more time in Northumberland, rehearsing with a brand new band, Alistair Anderson & Northlands. Sophy Ball, Ian Stephenson, Alistair and I have been really enjoying putting together some songs and tunes with a North East of England flavour, and we're playing our first ever concert this Thursday 16th July in Allendale Village Hall. We'll also be appearing at Whitby Folk Week on Friday 28th August - more info on that one soon.
