I've finally got around to writing this news page. It's been an extremely busy time of ups and downs but a progressive and exciting time too.
Last year I enjoyed a main stage performance at Beverley Folk Fest, I played The Half Moon in Putney, Hull folk Fest and Tribfest which I thoroughly enjoyed were just some of my favourites.
The high point of the year for me tho was a gig at Bishops Cleve, were I supported my very good friend and mentor legendary acoustic guitarist Gordon Giltrap at his first gig back after major surgery and a full year out through illness! He was of course outstanding as usual but the gig was made extra special as I was introduced on stage to his many loyal and adoring fans! I sold many CDs and made numerous new friends.
I also embarked on an interesting project with my Trapeze label mate Adam Norsworthy (The Mustangs) when we were thrown together by our label and asked to duet a Fleetwood Mac Cover! I not giving too much away as the whole thing will be released soon with accompanying video in March .
Talking about recording, I will be starting my next album shortly. All my own material, it will include tracks some of you will have heard 'The Dancing Dragonfly', 'Holly Blue', Purple Heart' and my most recent penned song 'High on a Hill'. I'm extremely excited about the new album which will feature Gordon and the brilliant talent that is Oliver Wakeman. I will keep you all posted about the release date.
So this year is one I'm looking forward to. I'll be guesting for Gordon Giltrap on his up and coming tour which is in conjunction with his superb new album 'Last Of England' available on Amazon and a work of art it is! www.gordongiltrap.co.uk.
I have some exciting support slots for Anna & Elizabeh from the US and Kathryn Roberts/Sean Lakeman plus the excitement of festivals and a little tour of Ontario in Canada!
So folks, please do continue to support my music, thank you for checking my site out. Many thanks go to Phil White BBC Radio Humberside, Tony Haynes FAB Vale Radio, David Michael Ward from Scarborough Radio and EGH radio for supporting me and my music.
Thanks go out as always to Hilary & Gordon Giltrap, my friend, mentor and Guardian Angel and Vintage Guitars/JHS www.jhs.co.uk who are a constant support to me
Much love xx
