Photos from Edward Thomas celebration concert at Bedales with Three Cane Whale

Here are a few shots from the show we did last weekend with Three Cane Whale at Bedales School.

It was a music celebration of Edward Thomas held the night before the annual Edward Thomas symposium. His great and great great grand daughters came along which was amazing.

We are doing a little return jaunt back from Somerset to Oxford at the end of this month to continue our musical celebration of Edward Thomas and his book ‘In Pursuit Of Spring’.

Super happy to announce that we will be ending the tour at the delightful Story Museum in Oxford on Saturday 31st May at 8pm.

Glastonbury gig confirmed

Tim has now confirmed that we will perform at The King Arthur in Glastonbury during our April ‘In Pursuit Of Spring’ tour, which means we nearly have a full house of gigs.

Now we just need to work out if we are going to do a show in Salisbury or have the night off!

The beer garden looks ace – I hope it is this sunny when we are there in April.

A few recordings from a rehearsal

Tim was down in London this weekend and we all got to play together for the first time.

We are working on a track called ‘Leaving London’ which is based on the chapter in ‘In Pursuit Of Spring’ where he is leaving London… Clever song name, hey?

You can hear a little demo of part of it here and a recording we did of John Ball on a cold Sunday morning.

 

Nearly time to tour

Gosh, it is only a few weeks to go. Tim has made a lovely poster. We are both trying out our new cycling cleats and I am off to Swindon tomorrow for a cheeky rehearsal with Katie. Bring it on.

Please note the change of Bath gig venue. The old place has closed down.

Performing for my grandparents

We have always had ambitions to do pedal folk shows in schools and old peoples homes, so I am totally chuffed that we have manage to sort out a lunch time chapel performance at Cote Lane, where my grandparents live.

Not sure if I am allowed to invite people along who don’t live there but worth dropping us a cheeky line if you are in the area and fancy it – 2pm on Friday 30th August in Westbury-on-Trym, north Bristol.

I hope they like it! My grandparents tend to prefer Frank Sinatra or Bach to folk music…

Summer Tour is coming together nicely

Buoyed from the success of our first tour, we are taking the liberty of organising a second this summer in the last week of August.

We’ve gigs already lined up for Bath, Bristol, Stroud and Swindon. Just need a couple more now. Lovely!
