Boat of Promises

So, it’s been a quiet time (again!) with a return to a lot more teaching and less performing, but I’m really pleased to announce that next month I’ll be releasing a duo album with Amy Davenport. This is a personal project that we’ve fitted in between some fairly epic life events, house moves, and more.

Titled “A Boat of Promises” after a song I wrote a couple of years back, it features 11 songs, accompanied on cittern or guitar with Amy and I singing. Alongside a couple of trad. tracks and some newly penned stuff of my own, we’ve chosen some less familiar songs by some of our favourite writers including Nancy Kerr, Archie Fisher and Stan Rogers.

Boat of Promises has been one of my own most requested songs for the past couple of years so I’m happy to announce, it’ll be available to take home from August. The CD will be launched mid-week at Whitby Folk Festival 2019 – watch this space for more details!
