Adam Holmes Support – 29th June, Biggar

I’m delighted to say that I’ll be appearing as special guest of Adam Holmes at The Corn Exchange, Biggar, on Friday 29th June.

Really looking forward to this one – not only will it be my first Scottish gig since the release of Volcanoes but it’ll be the first time in a while that I’ve shared a bill with Adam.

Tickets are available from the Clydesdale Folk Club now.

Of All the Towns – 15th anniversary offer

15 years ago today the debut album, Of All the Towns to Sleep In, was released…and to celebrate you can get a FREE copy of the album on CD when you buy a copy of the new CD, Volcanoes, from the SHOP here on the website. And then you can go and party like it’s 2003…

New Album Release – 23rd February 2018

Following the release of the Winterland EP in December, a brand new album is set for release later this month.

VOLCANOES will be available to buy and stream from Friday 23rd February, with a limited CD run also on sale the same day.

Featuring 11 tracks, the album follows the eclectic pattern set by its predecessor Lift – folky hummers, piano tinklers, bluesy stompers and retro rockers all co-exist, cheek-by-jowl, within the crater…with some strings, synth and brass thrown in for good measure.

I’m delighted to say the album also benefits from guest appearances by both Alan R Davison and Gecko 3 frontman, Martin Philip, who sing on  Battle Lines, on the Sun Studios-inspired Whole Heap of Trouble and on Requiem. The latter uses the Robert Louis Stevenson poem of the same name (along with the words on Stevenson’s tomb in Samoa) as its lyric, and is the track which closes the album.

To launch the album I’ll be playing a special house concert in South London on 22nd February alongside Fara.
