2013 Remaining Gigs

We still have the grand total of three gigs left this year as we begin to wind down what has been a bizarre, sensational and incredibly fun year.

Returning to Northwich Folk Club is going to be very special! It’s where it all began for the duo just over two years ago and we are thrilled to make our first return.

Album Number Two

First is the news that our second album is now very nearly recorded. We had a fantastic week at Fellside Records in Cumbria. It was productive and great fun and we are delighted with how the record is taking shape. We also had some special friends visit us during the week who added their various talents. We will be announcing the release date, name and other related information in the New Year.

2014 Gigs

It’s probably about time we told you where and when we will be appearing in the New Year. Though we aren’t allowed to release all of our dates due to contracts, we can certainly release enough to keep you going! We are really excited about next years touring schedule, returning to some of our favourite venues and festivals as well as making our inaugural visits to many more wonderful places.

You will notice that “A Days Work” features in the above list. “A Days Work” is a Folk Opera written by Mick Ryan in 1995. Mick has rewritten and resurrected the piece for performance next year. It is a piece based on the story of three very different men who fought for Britain in the First World War. The cast includes Mick Ryan, Paul Downes, Pete Morton, Heather Bradford, Matt Quinn, Maggie Boyle and Greg Russell.
