News and Gigs
Hello and thanks for dropping by!
It’s been a long time since live events first dropped out of our daily lives, and with fingers crossed, short of any solo gigs for the time being, I’m posting some events up here which I am otherwise involved in.
I’ve been in the studio with Billy Bragg, playing on two tracks for his new album. I'll will be joining Billy and his band for an online gig in June- news to follow soon here.

Single B-side with Stewart Lee
Recorded 10 years ago in the attic of Bom-Bane’s Cafe in Brighton is Stewart Lee’s tribute to The Nightingales ‘Use Your Loaf’ which I recorded, mixed and played viola on. It’s a real 45rpm vinyl record:
‘Hartlepool’ and ‘TFAYCD’ by Boothby Graffoe
Two brilliant songs by Boothby. I’m playing fiddle and banjos on these tracks and joined by Kate Daisy Grant on ‘Hartlepool'
Live in real spaces!!
Juanita Stein is the vocalist of Howling Bells. The band took a break while her first child was born, and in doing so, Stein began to pen some new material that she saw more suited for solo releases. Stein says her solo work is "is an ode to the dark heart of America. Of times gone and times to come. Dusty trails, a whimsical 50s suburbia and the haze of the 1960s. The music of Roy Orbison, Dusty Springfield, Lee and Nancy and Patsy Cline all informed my musical sensibilities. They opened up this wide screen universe for me.”
