New video here of Blowin' In The Wind made by Simon Wallace recorded by us at his studio - feel free to share it -
Couple of nice reviews -
and here -
and the e-flier is out for the end of October November season in NYC!
And there was a lovely review in the San Diego Reader of Hard Rain - here -
So things are hotting up. It was a busy september, with a ton of rehearsals for the tour of The Little Angel Theatre Production of Bear Hunt - see details here - great cast and wonderful show I'm so proud to have been a small part of. If you have children its for 2 and upwards and its best seen with children because they get SO excited. Total joy.
Here's a snippet -
Meanwhile there are a few things now up on the youtube channel and look out there for more - right now Simon "Scorsese" Wallace is working on a video of Blowin' In The Wind we recorded in part at his studio.
But right now I'm reading JJ Salkeld's Lakeland novels - great on the Lake District - because when I was up there recently I realised I'd forgotten just how stunningly beautiful the Lakes are, and then I found theses detective novels and they're perfect train and bus reading.
And as the day is gorgeous, I'm off for a walk to Battersea Park to say Hi to the Peace Pagoda and think on this world. The Pagoda was given to us by a Japanese Buddhist sect who's whole ethos is Peace.

Well, I was just about to go out and got sidetracked into listening to old Pentangle material - and as is always the way, I start with Youtube and find this great Jool's clip of the band reformed -
and then before you know it, I'm trailing Jacqui McShee's career - she's seventy now - still performing - there's youtube of her singing a year ago somewhere. Voice still good. And then of course my mind went hurtling back - to all that time, because i'd have been, what, 15? 15 when Light Flight came out, and Take Three Girls - breakthrough drama for the time. And what was I doing when I was 15? Hanging out in Stockport town centre by the bus stops with the other wisfuls, wishing I was older and could have a decent kaftan. I bought my kaftan from a catalogue. You can't make this stuff up. I better go for a walk. But here's some more Pentangle if you are in the mood for recreating the 1960's English folk scene.
And so with that - Namaste! Come see a show.
Come to the mailing list -
And have a wonderful autumn.
And I nearly forgot to say - Bare Again with the late and sadly missed Russell Churney on piano is now available on iTunes and Amazon for pre-order for the first time you can download this - my first solo album recorded 1998 and with three added tracks in 2007 -
