Exciting stuff folk fans; i had a phone call from a lady at BBC Bristol earlier this month saying that Countryfile were making a programme about Dartmoor due out later in June and that their researchers had come across my song 'Pride of the Moor' which i had been commissioned to write by Exeter's Spacex Gallery last year, celebrating the tin mining heritage of Dartmoor.
Hello folk fans, i hope you've all had a jolly holiday? I certainly have. Some really super festival gigs this summer with highlights including compering the 'Welcome to Devon' concert at the 60th Sidmouth Folk Festival (i haven't attended all the years btw) embodying Louis Killen and Peter Bellamy at Topic Records 75th birthday concert at Towersey Festival and singing to the sea at Clovelly's annual Lobster & Crab Feast!
We has such a wonderful afternoon at the Bude "Cream of Cornwall & Devon" concert i can't tell ee! I only wished we'd come up with a less clunky title!
Good day, good day fellow creatives! I am pleased to inform you that this new year begins with much excitement; i have formed a duo with a gentleman who is a most talented musician and we met during my sabbatical in Cornwall back in 2012. I can't confirm whether the feeling was mutual but i was particularly taken with his fabulous guitar playing and embracive vocal style. I assume he must have liked the noise i made as he expressed interest in meeting-up again.
