Pinch me I'm dreaming! No you're not; we have pictures to prove it.
A million thanks to Fairport Convention for inviting us to perform with them at Cropredy Festival - an absolute honour!
We're well chuffed to have been asked to join the legendary Lindisfarne for a few dates on their tour later in the year (we could only do three as our own gigs got in the way)
We will be opening up for them on:-
Friday 28th September, Whitby Pavilion, Whitby Yorks
Saturday 29th September, Lincoln Alive Centre, Lincoln. CANCELLED, to be rearranged.
Sunday 30th September, The Albany Theatre, Coventry.
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.
This accomplished duo that are no strangers to folk club and festival audiences alike here deliver their ninth album in 12 years. This is a perfect showcase for their current material. Dave Wilson’s songs deal with many difficult issues head on, from emigration and homelessness via rocky relationships and first love, to the customary song about his father (every songwriter eventually is driven to write one).
This has never happened before and we're in shock, very nice shock that is.
We were listed in the nominees for Top Duo in the Folking.com 2018 Awards, and came in runners up to the well deserving Kathryn Robert and Sean Lakeman.
Still in shock
We've brought the blog bag to tell those who'd like to find out and to help us remember what our tour with Fairport was like.
We're over halfway through the tour with Fairport and it's chugging along nicely. As Chris Leslie's song says “Our Bus Rolls On”.
What a smashing bunch of chaps they are! We've been made very welcome by the band and the crew and soon settled into the Fairport family.
