'North To The South...'

In the Scottish Highlands (SP)

It's going to be strange going back... but in a lovely way. I'm so looking forward to playing the shows and to catching up with a few folks, I hope. The gigs are below so please do check out what's happening; where and when, and please do join me if you can. I'll also be playing a special house concert in Bracknell, Berks. on my way back north for which details are available on request. (My Exeter house gig for Twigg's Gigs on Friday 20th is now SOLD OUT.)

Huge thanks to everyone I met on my recent tour of Scotland! I had such an amazing time playing different types of gigs in different towns and venues - including the legendary 'Hootananny' in Inverness - and every one was an absolute joy. Once again, the incredible welcome and hospitality was matched only by the stunning scenery, and the generosity and efforts of friend and gig-booker extraordinaire, Rossie! Together with the opportunity to meet many more wonderful souls, all of this made for a highly enjoyable run of shows. Huge thanks all 'round and I can't wait to do it all again!

We're very happily settling in to our new life here in County Durham. (Things to do still, but we'll get there...) I'll be playing my first full show as a 'local' on the 26th up in North Shields at Percy Park RFC in the Members' Bar there. This will be for Live In The North East and is a gig I've been looking forward to for some time. (It was originally scheduled for the beginning of August!) I also have a special gig in Durham on 10th December... details below.

The new material I've been airing at recent gigs has been very well received, which is thoroughly encouraging. I played a few new songs when I had the opportunity to be part of We Shall Overcome in Middlesbrough earlier this month which was a fantastic evening on every level. Inspiring people and a privilege to be part of. Thanks to Leigh Sayers for inviting me along and respect to him and everyone involved in making it happen.

There'll be more coming soon as things continue to settle down over the weeks ahead. I get the feeling that here will be a great place to work from and I'm excited about what's to come.

In the mean time, good wishes to all and I hope I'll see you somewhere soon.

With love...
