Still buzzing from playing 3 Pop Up Stages at C2C at the O2. Thanks again so much to Country to Country for having me play and to everyone who came along to the shows.  The festival had a great atmosphere with so much amazing live music.

Really excited to announce I’ll be performing at Country to Country Pop-Up stages in March at the O2. Can’t wait! More info here

From their website: Following the acclaimed success of Country to Country 2013, an outstanding line up of music stars are again heading across the Atlantic for a huge two-day music festival extravaganza at The O2 on Saturday 15 and Sunday 16 March 2014.

Legendary broadcaster Bob Harris will again be compering the festival:

“It is a very exciting time for Country music in the UK. C2C 2013 was a fantastic experience and next year’s festival promises to be another massive milestone. I am thrilled to be compering again and providing huge coverage on ‘Bob Harris Country’ on BBC Radio 2 when Nashville comes to London. See you at The O2!”

Looks like it’s going to be a great weekend. I’ll be posting the time I’m playing in the tour section.

I’ve also just recorded a live acoustic version of Arctic Monkeys ‘Do I Wanna Know?’ as I really like the soulful quality of the track. Hope you enjoy!
