So school is back and as the dust of summer settles on the newly tuned piano I find myself spring cleaning and getting back on my bike! I think I’ve got the year upside down!

Summer was busy with lot’s of music and time with family.

Sid and I have been invited back to Derry for a repeat of the When Traditions Meet concert we did back in the summer so we’re off to Derry this weekend!

This summer so far has been gorgeous yet I find myself thinking a little rain would be very welcome over night. We’ve had sports day, now only a few days left til the summer holidays. My lovely neighbour Margarethe has been harvesting rose petals and making pot-pourri and evening primrose tea! I love love love it when the harvest begins.

 Watch this space for Peacock Angell and Froe dates coming up soon with Live and Local and see if we’re coming to play near you. If we’re not and you’d like to have us come and play for you in your theatre, village hall, front room, church or folk club then just pop me a message and we’ll make it happen.


Ahh hello! Not sure what’s happened but I seem to have lost my other blog…… I’m sure it’ll turn up somewhere, probably down the back of the sofa or under the seat in the van with all the other lost things!

I’ve just done two days recording for Becky Mills. Such a lovely time and can’t wait for the results to be public. Watch this space!


Anyway this sunshine has just been gorgeous and we’re beavering away on lots of things. SURGE in Spring 2 was a huge success and you can watch our highlight video here: HIGHLIGHTS OF SURGE .

Lot’s of exciting projects in the pipeline working with Sid Peacock on ‘When Traditions Meet’ in Derry Northern Ireland check my Gigs page for further info. and upcoming gigs with Peacock Angell , Becky Mills and Ashley Hutchings.






Strawberries are out and I even made jam! Soooo delicious on a hot crumpet.
