Performance at Holy Trinity Church, Hurstpierpoint, Saturday 20th May 2023

I am really looking forward to playing at a local Church, Holy Trinity Church in Hurstpierpoint, on Saturday 20th May to promote my new album, ‘The Wood Wide Web’. I saw Mike & Reina Reinstein perform in this beautiful church, at a previous Music & Wine Evening, and the acoustics are wonderful.
I will be talking about the stories behind the songs on ‘The Wood Wide Web’ and what drove me to write them. There will also be a “quiz” with prizes! Doors open 5.30pm for a 6pm start.

Video Premiere for ‘The Wood Wide Web’ album launch

Our new album, ‘The Wood Wide Web’ gets released in to ‘The World Wide Web’ on Friday 24th February 2023…Expect the usual “rich still getting even more rich” and general “divide and conquer to maintain the status quo” disasters brought upon us by business as usual to, unfortunately, continue, but I would like to announce this scream in to the darkness. Video launch happens here

Warm, tender and completely absorbing, this album showcases beautifully the band’s particular brand of acoustic folk, seamlessly dovetailing the traditional with the contemporary, while intricate guitars and strings and Ian Roland’s characteristically breathy vocals create a wonderful intimacy. Beautiful.” Indiesonics
