  • Tales of the twat with a laptop

    Dear all,

    It's been a rather breathless time of it all and there's no let up any time soon! The tour has been fantastic and I'm loving life on the road and it's been great to play at, for the most part, full houses and sell loads of CDs. It's pretty full on though and my mileage has been nothing short of outrageous and my sleep deprivation is quite considerable! Thank god things calm down after this...oh wait.

    Anyway, a bit of a report on my gigs:

    05/03 - Unicorn Theatre, Abingdon - Oh my god! What a venue! What a venue! A beautiful and extremely old theatre with stunning acoustics. Added to which the crowd were lovely, CD sales were phenomenal and the host Geoff was just about the nicest guy you could ever meet. A wonderful night.

    06-07/03 - Moonbeams March Weekend, Driffield - What a cracking little festival! Really enjoyed my sets and nice to catch up with some old faces. Discovery of the year in Plumhall too whose song 'Never Forget My Name' is a truly stunning song.

    08/03 - Folk On The Moor, Plymouth -
