Happy springtime to you and I hope that you are all enjoying the brief pockets of seasonal weather in between repeated episodes of winter that keep reappearing like Star Wars sequels.
I have been busy on the road since way back in the autumn, having completed a quite irrational 5 tours in 5 months. I am celebrating the end of that by announcing MY SPRING TOUR!
ONE FINE MAY
Coming up in May I'll be touring the UK as far down as Southampton, as far up as Kirkcaldy, and a good many places in between, including many that I've never headlined before! Deal, Durham, Trowbridge, what do you say? Can we make it work??? Details are on the GIGS page and here is a lovely picture:
It's getting to that time of year again when we all dig out the tent, dust off our wellies and prepare for a Labour leadership challenge, and that can mean only one thing: summer is on the way. I am delighted to be playing a lovely selection of perfectly-formed festivals including - by very, very popular demand - a return to wonderful GREENBELT! It has been 2 years since I was last there and I have loads of new material and my band in tow, so that will be a very special show and I can't wait to be back.
Also announced today is UNDERNEATH THE STARS festival, near Barnsley, Solas festival in Scotland, Priddy Folk festival down in Somerset, Barking festival (which is FREE!) and I am delighted to be returning once more to Cumbria back to Music on the Marr. All links and tickets can be found up on the Gigs page - I hope to catch some of you down the road.
Today I start recording yet another album! But more on that story later...
For now, wishing you chocolate filled Bank Holidays and Good Fridays and a happy spring,
