Exciting Gig News!

The next few weeks are looking rather busy here and I have a number of very exciting events coming up which I wanted to draw your attention to, including one or two late announcements!

On the 16th June I will be playing at a fundraising event for the wonderful Durham-based mental health charity, RTProjects. Find out more about them and the event here, and if you can come along and support them in any way, please do.

I’m incredibly excited to have the honour of being involved in the 134th Durham Miners’ Gala which takes place on 14th July. There will be various events, talks and more happening on the two days running up to the day itself under the banner of People, Pits & Politics. I’ll be popping up occasionally across the three-day event and the best way of keeping up with where and when will be via my Facebook and Twitter accounts. The main musical act this year is the incomparable Billy Bragg, and other artists and speakers include John McDonnell, Ken Loach, Hilary WainwrightMark Steel, Paul Mason and many more. Needless to say, I feel incredibly privileged to be part of this. Find out more about the Gala itself here and the various events leading up to the Big Day here, including how to book for ticketed events.

There are a number of regular gigs and such coming up as well, and you can see where and when these will be taking place below, as well as over on the Events page, of course. These range from free-entry ‘Live In The Bar’ gigs to ticketed shows to the odd festival appearance too. (More festival news coming soon, by the way.) One of this year’s most anticipated gigs for me happens on 26th July in North Shields when I’ll be returning to play Percy Park Rugby Club for Live In The Noth East, this time with a very special guest in the person of Anne Sumner. Find out more about her beautiful music here and if you can join us, full details and tickets are available on the Live In The North East website.

Hope to see you somewhere soon then, folks. Huge thanks as always and take care...
