The days are longer, there are hundreds of tiny ducklings in the river near my house, and people are smiling again -  I don't think there is anywhere more beautiful than the UK in the spring!

I went to see the lovely Edwina Hayes in Grantham on the 1st, and wa...

I can't believe we're nearly through March already,  things seem to be happening a mile a minute now that the days are getting longer and the sun has come out to play!

Last month I had the pleasure of seeing Cobalt (Pat Sherrington and Nuala Keller) at The Greystones i...

2016 has been an exceptional year for me, though there seemed to be far too many people leaving us behind. I was lucky enough to celebrate the new year at a house party with Winter Wilson, Ray and Anna from Two Coats Colder, Sue and Roger Cook, and Pippa and Dan (a fan...

I had a lovely month in Canada soaking up the summer sun. The Okanagan valley is so beautiful, and the dry air just makes you feel good all over. I didn't bring a guitar with me but was able to borrow my mother's Larrivee 0-50. I didn't play as much as I would have lik...

What a great day! I was on the main stage fairly early and spent the rest of the day running between the Orchard stage and the main stage, trying to catch all the amazing performers. I also recorded a spot for Jono Brine's BBC radio show in the 'Secret Garden' -  I wil...

My old Gibson J50 has once again become my main gigging guitar. It was my first and only guitar for 25+ years. After a neck reset and setup, it is a joy to play. 

I can't count how many guitars I've been through in the last 10 years. I have always said I'm a Martin gi...

I had a fantastic time last night with Edwina Hayes and the great '8:00' Boo Hewerdine at the Doncaster Roots Music club. It was my first time in Doncaster, and won't be my last. The lovely Fiona Hannon and Anita Collins came along too for a mini Moniak reunion. Fiona...

I went over to the NCCD last night for their acoustic cafe. It's a lovely place to play, with soundman Steve making sure everyone sounds great through his nice PA.  The cafe bar is open for drinks, and a decent audience turns up to support the local musicians. Luckily...
