Thanks very much for all of the song suggestions, you've kept us very busy and given us an excuse to leave the gardening for an afternoon, and we've had a lot of fun in the process.
We will be posting another set next week which will be made up of our own songs and then we'll probably do another covers set the following week.
So please keep the suggestions coming.
We were out and about playing a few gigs recently and called in on Les Ray at Cambridge 105 Radio.
We played live, selected a few of our own favourite songs and have a chat with Les on his Strummers and Dreamers show.
While playing a few gigs in Ireland recently (May 18) we met up with the lovely Kerry Fearon. Kerry has her own TV show, (Kerry's Gold Country, Freeview 87, Sky 376, Freesat 516) We recorded a chat for her show and Kerry came along to the gig that night.
The show goes out on a Friday and Tuesday night.
We've just returned from a few gigs overseas, playing in Tilburg (Netherlands) Solingen and Kiel (Germany)
You never know how it's going to go when playing new venues and especially when they're so far from home. But we needn't have worried, aside from the gig at the Torpedo Theatre in Amsterdam being cancelled all else was good and we shall be going back.
Dave took the photo from the pier at Calais the evening before we returned to the UK.
Five gigs in five days starting in Cramlington on Nov 1st then around Scotland and back home, short but sweet. We're home for two days and then off again. Check out the Dates page for details.
Exciting times (for us anyway) January will see us making our first venture to Australia & New Zealand. The first dates for our gigs in Australia and New Zealand are up on the website and there are one or two more to be confirmed. We've been booked to play three festivals in Australia as well as a string of concert venues and folk clubs that will take us from Queensland to New South Wales, Victoria, over to New Zealand both the North and South Islands and then back for a few more dates in Western Australia.
Don't you love it when the whole town gets into a festival, there were Morris Dancers, Hobby Horses hobbying and plenty of singing and sessioning at Banbury Festival.
Another great job from Derek and Mary and all the volunteers.
