As Coronavirus has put paid to our gigs for the next few months, we've been finding other ways to keep occupied.
The garden has never looked so good, we've spoken to the neighbours (they're very nice) and we've got paint in the garage ready for the stairs and hallway.
But apart from that we'll be putting up a few videos onto YouTube, Instagram and Facebook etc, the first one being a set of covers requested by folks via Facebook.
Have a look, let us know what you think and keep the suggestions coming, let's keep in touch.
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.
Finally - the live album we recorded on the Fairport Convention Winter Tour 2018.
We'll be launching the album officially at Cropredy in August, but in the meantime you can pre-order (for July delivery) from our shop here.
Review copies have already gone out and, so far, they like it!!
We've been invited to play the Illawarra Folk Festival again in January, what a great way to escape the British winter.
We will be playing a few more gigs in and around New South Wales while we're out there and hopefully catching up with some of the friends we made out there in 2017.
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.
