Hi everyone!
Sorry we've been so quiet....again! We've been busy gigging and learning new songs.

We travelled to Nailsea the other week to play a gig there, and what an amazing evening it was! Thanks to everyone who came and made us feel so welcome! The folk club is set in a beautiful 15th century barn, and if any of you find yourselves in that part of the country on a Friday night, y'all should definitely go and check it out! They have some fab acts coming up. Our support act was a fantastic singer/guitar player called Si Barron....check him out too....brilliant!

This weekend we're heading to Folkstock Studios to record a track for their Christmas EP. We're really excited to be a part of this, with other acts that we really love, including Minnie Birch, Katie Rae and Kelly Oliver. It's going to be released next month we think, and we will let you all know how you can get your grubby mitts on it then.

Our next gig is going to be AWESOME and we're really looking forward to it. It's on home soil for us, at the Harpenden Public Halls, which is where we ended the Swarb tour earlier this year. It's a great venue, and it's really lovely to sing to a home crowd. This gig, Folktoberfest, is a fundraiser for Folkstock Foundation, and has been organised by Helen Meissner. Also joining us is Kelly Oliver, who is launching her awesome debut album on the night, Luke Jackson, Jess Morgan and Maz O'Connor. What an amazing line up! And all for just £10! There's going to be cider and real ale at the bar too, so do come along. You can book tickets HERE.

Lastly, as you probably know, we were honoured, earlier this year, to be asked to do some recording for a charity single version of Pete Seeger's classic Where Have All The Flowers Gone. We joined a stellar line up, named The Armistice Pals, that included: Dave Swarbrick, Gavin Davenport, Luke Jackson, Lucy Ward, Edwina Hayes, Kelly Oliver, Peggy Seeger and Pete Seeger (Through the magic of technology) and IT SOUNDS AMAZING!! It is now available to download from BANDCAMP, and the physical version is out on the 9th November. All proceeds go to charity. We're hoping to get air play on BBC Radio 2....so watch this space. It really is an incredible thing to be a part of, and we're so grateful that we were given the opportunity. Huge thanks and congratulations to everyone involved!

Well that's it for now.
Stay warm and dry, and don't get blown away....
