Very pleased to be heading up to the North East on Sunday 24th July for this year’s Summertyne Festival in Newcastle. I was selected by the  Americana Music Association UK to play and there’s a great bunch of artists playing including Imelda May, Mary Chapin Carpenter and many more. Check out the rather nice festival guide below, hope to see some of you there

Big thanks to Sweden and Norway for an amazing tour with Last Box of Sparklers (Erik Nyberg) and Shaun Buswell , such a beautiful part of the world and full of good people.

It was a privilege and a pleasure to play on Shaun and Erik’s beautiful songs and we worked up some nice vocal harmonies by the end of the tour. A bit of a different format this tour, being three singer-songwriters, we decided to back each other up on various instruments and mix together each other’s songs instead of just playing straight solo sets. A lot of fun! I also got to play and sing in some lovely venues, with other  wonderful musicians joining in at various gigs along the way . Great to see live music is very much alive and kicking in Scandinavia. Check out the tour pics and more over on Facebook  .

So thanks again to everyone who came out to hear us play and we hope to be back later in the year.

Happy 2016 folks! I’m very pleased to announce I will be getting some culture into my life with a gig at the wonderful National Portrait Gallery on Friday the 5th Feb.
