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.
We are over the moon with the reaction to Far Off on the Horizon. Please click on the links below to see what folks have been saying.
"Another fine album of original songs...Ghost...should be heard in every folk club in the country." **** (4 stars) Dai Jeffries, R&R Magazine.
Far off on the Horizon is now on general release and we're on the road with the mighty Fairport Convention.
We are delighted with the reviews of the album, let's hope the concert reviews are as good.
"Wilson's songs pull no punches when relating to the sights and sounds of everyday local life, and are complimented by Kip's powerful and emotional voice."
