Ta Da!!! Big Drum Roll !!
It is here - at last. Our new CD has been born.
It is entitled Back There and features 11 songs - some that we have written, and the rest from some of my favourite songwriters.
We are currently in the process of getting the album out into the wide world - radio and folk magazines and updating websites and so on.
To all our wonderful supporters from the Kickstarter campaign way back last Autumn I give you hearty thanks - by now you should have had your CDs or they're in the post to you if they haven't arrived yet. I hope you enjoy it.
We played a set at the festival last month featuring the new songs and allowing Tom to get over his total panic at having his voice featured on record for the first time! I swear he was hoping no-one would buy it! But we're getting good feedback so far so the panic is over :)
Here's a video taken from the audience of the title track, Back There. The song was written by an old friend of mine, Tony Kerr from Derry, who's now living and working in Nashville. It's a gentle theme of looking back to childhood days and I love the sentiment in it.
I have been missing my visits to everyone's blogs in the past weeks - still haven't got my head into some sort of sane place, but it'll happen soon I know and I'm looking forward to catching up with what's going on in your lives.
I've been having fun playing with Lisa Sonora's Dreaming on Paper online workshop over the past few weeks - taking 10 minutes here and there to just splash paint about. It has always been a secret dream of mine to play with paint, not necessarily to paint pictures but just to mess about with colour and this course is perfect. # lisasonora.com
Have a great weekend and I hope you're all enjoying the start of the turning seasons.
