Here are some live songs from my set at Folking Live at Bracknell Hill Park Art Centre in September. It was a really nice gig and the people there were lovely, listeners and promotors, sound man and video man. Thanks to Joe and Adrian at Artree Music!

This week for our Song Assignment, Dave and I had to write about school. As a supply TA, I’m spending a lot of time in classrooms at the moment, and Dave’s niece Hannah (age 4) chipped in some vocals and lyrics for his contribution. Have a listen and give us your mark out of 10-you can vote for your favourite and hear the tracks at http://songassignment.wordpress.com/
I will be playing sometime between 5 and 7pm tonight on the Boileroom’s slot on Guildford’s local radio station, Kane FM. Here’s what they tell me:
People can text in to the studio on 07860021656
Listen online at www.kanefm.com
Or if they live in the area at 103.7 FM
There will be a listen again stream up the next day at www.mixcloud.com/theboileroom
Hope you can listen in! (interview starts about 56 mins in on 27 Sept session)
Last weekend we went to the Green Man festival, and so last week we were a little too tired to write our song assignments. But this week we decided to relive the joy of mud, cooking outside, portaloos and, oh yeah, seeing music that makes up the greatest festival experiences. You can listen to our songs here and vote for the one you like the best: http://songassignment.wordpress.com/
Also, we’d love your wack-o suggestions for future SA’s 🙂
Here are some of my favourite parts of the weekend, including scrambling up Table Mountain and the hill behind the main stage:
To quote my arch rival, Vladimir Lad:
We went to watch the closing ceremony of the Olympics outdoors this week. We got there early. Being the party animals that we are, we played Scrabble before the show started. It was raging I can tell you. And so we thought we’d bring the magic to you with songs inspired by the words formed during that very game. Exciting right? Right?
So that’s how we wrote songs about Scrabble. See if you like them and vote here: http://songassignment.wordpress.com/
Here’s a clip of me playing Love Song (from the Cramond Island album) at the West End Centre, Aldershot in July. It was a fun gig and afterwards we got to watch Mark Morriss from the Bluetones, a hilarious man with lovely tunes who headlined the acoustic stage.
We have been doing a bit of driving this week, and have caught a couple of episodes of a show about motorways, so we decided it was time to pay tribute to the concrete and tarmac. You can listen to our songs here and vote for which one like best…
Sorry for the late announcement, but we got into the spirit this week and felt it was our duty, so here you are, two songs about the running, jumping, swimming, cycling and everything else we love. You can listen and vote here: http://songassignment.wordpress.com/
So this week I think we both could have written about the recorder, but Dave chose to overlook that for the piano. I managed to record a song about it without playing it-instead I tried my hand at ukelele.
You can listen and vote here, and remember, we’re always looking for more suggestions!
