My new live mini-album is set to be officially released in October and will be titled 'Steve Pledger: Alone In The Dark'.

I'm thrilled to say that it will first be available ahead of release at a special concert taking place at the National Trust's stunning property Dunster Castle in Somerset on 6th September.This incredible location was also the venue for the release of 'Somewhere Between' and to be able to return to play there is a thrill in itself. A truly spectacular and historic setting, tickets for the event are on sale now priced at just £12, available from the Shop. As before, because of the special nature of this property, tickets will only be available to book in advance and not available on the door. Early sales suggest that we could end up looking at another sell-out evening anyway so if you'd like to be there, you're advised to book in good time. I hope to see many of you there!

I'll be sharing more news about the album itself with you shortly, but suffice to say that it was recorded last November by my good friend and collaborator, Nigel Neill, and I believe it captures much of the essence of a live gig... I'm very much looking forward to sharing it with you.

Ahead of then I have more On Trust Events in the pipeline, including the next gig which takes place in Durham on 12th July at the home of RTProjects. This is the mental health charity headed up be another good friend, Beano, with whom 'What If?' was written, recorded and released earlier this year for the project of the same name, put together by Graham Grundy. You can find out more about this here and purchase the resulting single and or album. (All proceeds go to RTProjects!) The gig I'm playing there next month is the second in the series of On Trust Events, about which you can discover more here. There are no fixed price tickets for this show and you simply pay whatever you are willing/able to pay at the end of the evening. If you're in or around Durham on the 12th, it'd be great to see you there. Simply reserve your place(s) here. (It only takes about 30 secs.)

Following a bit of Summery downtime, things kick-off again in style with the Dunster Castle concert and I also have a couple of other shows in the South West that weekend, including a House Concert for the wonderful Twigg's Gigs in Exeter before getting back to the award-winning Pebbles in Watchet on the 8th for a Sunday afternoon of originals and covers! Thereafter I head back up to Scotland for my annual visit before further musical shenanigans back south of the border. You can find details of some of these events below; more on the Event page, and more to follow soon.

Thank you so much for your support in so many ways and I hope to see you somewhere very soon. If you don't already do so, you can keep up with things by following me on FacebookTwitter and Instagram, as well as On Trust Events on Facebook and Twitter too.

New songs continue to materialise and I shall be road-testing a few over the coming months in addition to those that have become embedded in recent sets. I haven't forgotten that a new studio album might also not be a bad idea at some stage so bear with me on that one. I hope that 'Alone In The Dark' may fill a gap in the meantime as well as serve as a good representation of some of the core songs I've been playing in recent years. If you don't yet own copies of my first three albums, they are all available to order via the Shop.

Wishing you all that's needed to make it through the days right now, and I know that maybe feels like it takes more than ever. Hang in there, folks.

See you soon...
