This summer I’ll be packing the wellies for Timber Festival, Doune The Rabbit Hole, Deershed Festival, Underneath The Stars and Moseley Folk Festival with You Tell Me. Head over to the gig page for more information and tickets.
I’m looking forward to spending some time in Durham as part of the tutor team at the Folkworks Junior Summer School; always a very special week of friendship and music-making.
I’m also very pleased to have been invited to take part in an Enterprise Music Scotland Creative Exchange in the beautiful surroundings of Hospitalfield, Arbroath. I’ve heard so much about this place and am intrigued to see what transpires…
The You Tell Me album came out last month and has been getting some great reviews. Very pleased! We’ll be heading out on tour with the band in March, so do come and say hello if you’re in or near one of these fine cities. Tickets and more information here.
Now for something completely different!
In partnership with NOISe, Admiral Fallow have made an opera! Navigate The Blood is a new work co-written with composer Gareth Williams and librettist Sian Evans. We’ve been working away on it for some months now and are about to embark on the final week of rehearsals, before touring begins on 2nd November. The Glasgow performances are sold out, but you can catch us at a number of unusual venues (mostly distilleries…) around Scotland until the end of November.
I'm very happy to be able to say that You Tell Me - my collaboration with Field Music's Peter Brewis - has a new song out now! Clarion Call is available to listen and buy digitally here, and there's a limited edition 7" pre-order link here.
A big thank you to Marc Riley for playing the song on his BBC Radio 6 Music show on Wednesday night. Listen again from 18 minutes in...
We'll also be heading out to play some gigs in October. Hope to see you there!
I'll also be playing two gigs later in the month with Alistair Anderson & Northlands. They are: Etal Village Hall on 21st April and Ropery Hall, Barton-upon-Humber. We had a lovely time in York and London in March, too!
Three special shows in Newcastle!
I'm delighted to be part of Northern Flyway, a new musical project developed by Inge Thomson & Jenny Sturgeon. We're playing at The Barn, Banchory on 20th January, followed by two shows at Celtic Connections, and an autumn 2018 tour to be announced. More information here...
