I’ve had a rest-day today… headed up deep into the Appalachian mountains. It was little bit misty up there, but still amazing.

Got some other good stuff coming up too – so keep in touch!

Announcing many gigs far and wide…

The Birmingham date on 11th May (Sunflower Lounge) is going to be great… always fun to play with Midget and Giant. This’ll be hot on the heals of our 8th May Songs for the Bath Tub at Trof Northern Quarter (Manchester), which is one of my favourite events to do…

Before all that, I’m off to Atlanta, Georgia. Can’t wait to play at Mahoneyfest and to meet all the musicians out there!

Writing this from Somerset, where I’m taking a quick break. Tomorrow I’m playing in Crediton, Devon — though I’ve not put this one on the gig calendar. It’s at an old people’s home there, at the heady hour of 2.30 pm. Whee!! Hopefully afterwards I’ll be out in Exeter or somewhere though -which is always good fun!


Last minute gig tonight!

I’m playing at the Iguanna Bar in Chorlton, tonight (Thursday, March 8th) – a very last minute gig! It’s a good venue, and should be fun!
