Today I write from St Pancras Station, you see yesterday I had the pleasure of listening to Sámi musician Hildá Länsman and Helsinki-based sound designer and music man Tuomas Norvio. It was wonderful and I’m now full of fresh ideas!
In other news, ‘Provenance’, although not yet released, is doing great, being played regularly on Genevieve Tudor’s Sunday Folk as well as Moorlands Radio and fRoots Radio; I feel very lucky for my music to be appreciated and shared.
You can also read the first review of ‘Provenance’ by clicking on folking.com. Another is also in the works at fRoots magazine.
Starting next week I’m going to release short samples of each track from the album every Friday, until the release date of July 6th. So keep your eyes peeled if you’d like to hear it pre-release snippets.
On Saturday 26th, 12:10, I’ll be playing on the bandstand at Hexham Gathering with Hannah Lord and on Wednesday 31st May, 19:00, I have my final recital at the Sage Hall 2, both are free and the more there the merrier. The recital at the Sage is ticketed so to avoid disappointment I recommend getting your free ticket from here in advance.
Also, here’s a bit of a mazurka I’ll be playing in my recital next Wednesday, composed by Edward Elgar: featuring Niles Krieger & Sam Partridge.
