Exciting news! This book of original compositions is now out of my control and with the printers. Thirty years of life as a professional folk musician portrayed in melody… as well as the occasional harmony! Huge thanks to Amanda Jayne White (www.mandascat.com) for her original artwork for the cover, and to Rob Say for putting the whole thing together. We will be holding a small, informal launch concert as part of the JSArts Course in Ushaw College, on Saturday 13th July. Details can be found on the Events page – advance bookings only please.

I am delighted that Frank McLaughlin and my colleagues in Bottle Bank Band have kindly agreed to come along and perform, there will be a chance to purchase the new book, and there will be a small session afterwards, so if you can come do bring your instruments.

The 30 Years Collection will be available to purchase from the online shop from Monday 15th July, so please check back then for details.
