Had a great weekend at Ramblin’ Roots Revue, an excellent Americana roots music festival at Bucks Student Union. Saw so much amazing live music including storming sets by Danny and the Champions, Robert Vincent, The Magic Numbers and a fun Tom Petty tribute. It was also lovely to meet Romeo Stodart of The Magic Numbers before their headline set.
Had fun performing on the Earbelly Music acoustic stage and it was lovely to be joined again by Alan Cook on pedal steel and dobro – Alan recently joined me for my Whispering Bob TV Under the Apple Tree session – and we also recorded a live session for Medicine Music, video on their YouTube channel soon.
It’s been a busy few days! Had a wonderful night performing at Norwich Waterfront Studio opening for Sarah Darling. It was exciting to perform two brand new songs and lovely to have the brilliant Noel Dashwood joining me on exceptional dobro and harmony vocals.
New song “I Just Can’t Forget”
Rehearsing new song “Anything But Easy” before the show:
Sarah sounded absolutely sublime and it was a joy to support her.
“With dobro player Noel by her side, she opened up the evening with a great array of original songs which she has written over her substantial career as a musician.
It was easy to be drawn in by her elegant and classy deliverance” Huge thanks to the EDP Newspaper for this great review.
“Lisa performs numbers from her recent Another Place and Time EP, several brand new songs, and also one of my favourites, Carolina Rain from the earlier Slipstream album. Lisa has always moved seamlessly between the worlds of country and folk, but tonight’s set understandably steers more towards the former, and provides a great opener to tonight’s show.” And thanks also to Outline Magazine for their kind words.
Prior to the show I was interviewed by Fatea Magazine about songwriting, favourite artists and my career. Huge thanks to Nic Rigby.
The following day I had a lovely afternoon recording my second Under the Apple Tree session for Whispering Bob TV. It’s always special catching up with Bob Harris and for this session it was so nice to be reunited with pedal steel player Alan Cook who played on my second album “Lost Again”.
Bob Harris and I between two pedal steel greats! Chris Hillman and Alan Cook.
Really excited to share the brand new music video to my new single ‘When Christmas Comes Around’ which is out now. Thank you so much to French fan David Sk for creating this lovely festive video, which features my two homes Norwich and New York City, and thanks so much for watching and sharing.
“expertly performed..is a fine addition to the canon of Christmas songs” Thanks so much to Stephpar for featuring and reviewing my Christmas single at Song A Day. Such kind words. The song has just received airplay on BBC Suffolk and many other shows.
Just had a great time filming at the BBC, playing guitar for Breeze on a special acoustic festive cover. You’ll be able to see the performance on the 22nd December just before The One Show on BBC Look East and West at around 6.50pm. It was lovely being in the very festive BBC Introducing studio and thanks so much to Look East for having us.
My live session and interview for Amazing Radio and Baylen Leonard’s excellent show ‘The Front Porch’ was aired this weekend and if you missed it, you can listen again here. Baylen’s show showcases the finest Americana, country, roots and folk and he has been very supportive, playing ‘Carolina Rain’ and ‘Dreaming in Crowds’
Great night Saturday supporting the wonderful Eve Selis at The Little Rabbit Barn in Essex. It was such a thrill to sing with her & her amazing band too! Huge thanks to them and all involved with the show.
Making the most of a sunny day! Cool new photo shoot and video. Playing my Baby Taylor and Luna Ukulele in the sunshine! Thanks to Claudia Taveira Photography and also the wonderful Taylor Guitars and Luna Guitars for sharing the video.
Thanks to Stephen Foster for having me on his show. Ahead of my upcoming gig supporting Hazel O’Connor on Wednesday, which is sold out, my songs are being aired each evening this week between 6 and 7pm UK time!
Brand new song ‘If We Meet Again’ performed @EPICNorwich Thanks for all the sweet words so far, so glad it’s had a lovely response!
Also I will be playing in Cambridge on Saturday March 23rd. Have been asked to support brilliant singer/songwriter Al Lewis whose album ‘Battles’, recorded and produced by the amazing producer Charlie Peacock, is out this week and is currently riding high in the iTunes singer/songwriter chart. Going to be a lovely night!
