It’s been a crazy year on the road, I think I’ll have clocked up nearly 60 gigs by December. Thanks to all of you who have attended a gig, and especially those who’ve booked me for housegigs; they’ve been brilliant, and are continuing to come in at an alarming rate (5 already in for next year).

There's no greater compliment that can be paid to the album [The Last Mad Surge of Youth] than to say quite plainly that it's a really enjoyable album, one for repeated listening and guaranteed to touch a nerve of some sort for fans of a certain age who will enjoy the ponderings and contemplations"

Happy hallowe'en, y'all...I'm cunningly avoiding all the "trick or treating" by going out to see my mate Lotte Mullan supporting Moulettes ....should be a good night.

Anyone in Whitchurch/Wrexham area; I've been booked for a charity housegig on Sunday Nov 16th. It's in aid of Borderbrook School Library, and on at Tallarn Green Village Hall (how I love Village Hall gigs!)...there are a few tickets available to the general public...if you're interested, check poster below, or, if the writing's too small (!) try under "Events" in left hand column.

Great review of last month's Cornucopia Festival; don't think we've ever been described as a festival "musical highlight" before...http://www.fatea-records.co.uk/magazine/2014/Cornucopia.html
Mind you, having Longcroft School's 26-strong Longcroft Gospel Choir join us on a few tracks must have helped...great pic by Viceversarobbi Fotografia from side o' stage.
