The Theatre Ballads

,

I’ve had a really nice few weeks rehearsing and performing a show with a group of fellow folk musicians and a theatre company that was commissioned by EFDSS. John Kirkpatrick, Bryony Griffiths and Kate Locksley and myself were performing a collection of narrative folk songs – dark, old ballads most of them – with a backdrop of animation and puppetry from the theatre, which told the stories visually. It was a really fun thing to be involved with and we’ll be returning to it in the Summer and perhaps beyond.

Breaking the Spell of Loneliness in 2017

,

After a short Christmas break me and George Monbiot will be dusting off our ‘Breaking the Spell of Loneliness’ tour and taking it to Scotland in early February. As well as Celtic Connections in Glasgow, we’ll be playing in Edinburgh, Inverness and Aberdeen. From there we’ll be going on to Birmingham and Aberystwyth, both also in February.
We’ll also shortly be announcing a few festivals that we’ll be taking the show to in the Spring and Summer …keep an eye out for those.
