I’m delighted to announce that my debut solo CD Meanders was launched at Sidmouth Folk Festival in August and is available for download and mail order now. Orders will be sent out as promptly as touring commitments allow.
I recorded it over two days in January at Woodworm Studio in Oxfordshire, with Andy Bell engineering, and we had finished mixes done by the end of the second day. The tunes are mostly my own compositions but there are a few traditional sets on there too. Along with lovely photos by Camilla Greenwell and a beautiful digifile cardboard sleeve designed by Robin Beatty, I'm really happy with it, not to mention amazed that I've finally got round to doing it!
