Well, it’s been a little quiet on the touring front as of late, although the year to date has seen a couple of mini-tours, one of the North of Scotland & the other of the South West of England; which included a support slot to the legendary Dave Swarbrick at the beautiful Bristol Folk House.
This is not without good reason, as I have been very busy in the studio with Ian McCalman putting the final touches to the new album, which I’m happy to say is almost ready to be mastered. Artwork concepts are being worked through & we should have a final product pretty soon, all set for a launch in the late spring, in good time for the busy festival season. I’m honestly not just saying this, but I’m very proud of this record – all the musicians who appear on it sound fantastic & I am of the firm belief that it is the finest record I’ve made yet. And I, of course, very much hope you will all agree.
I’m currently putting together my 2012 touring schedule which in addition to dates all over the UK, will also include return tours to Holland, Germany & Switzerland with hopefully further dates in Austria, Ireland & Slovakia too. And for the first time I shall also be performing in Latvia, Finland & Estonia.
Please keep a close eye on the gigs page, which is changing all the time. I, of course, very much hope to see you all at a show soon.
Very best wishes,
