Ramblin’ Roots Revue

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.

New French Song Appelle-moi, UK Festivals, Maverick and Latitude

Have had a great time performing at some big music events and festivals including Ipswich Music Day, one of the largest free one day music festivals in the UK. As well as enjoying some great music, I also ended up doing sets at Maverick Festival and Latitude Festival. I was also part of a panel during the Americana Music Association UK conference that went really well and I gained some great feedback after discussing the use of social media.
