It’s that time of year again. We drive home wailing, to the most mournful tune we know, “it’s not folk week anymoreeeee”. Give it a go, it’s cathartic I promise.

Wise people (Cathy Kirkpatrick, Andrew Lorien) have been recommending we see William Crighton for ages. Well, we finally did - his first ever English gig too, and it was ACE. He’s doing a run of gigs here over the next while, and you should all go and check him out and make him welcome (and prove that we all want musicians from far off places to be able to visit our small island to blow our minds!!) http://www.williamcrightonmusic.com.au/#tour

Ever wondered why it’s taking you so long to change your strings? It’s because you’re not using your drill.

Very excitingly, this week we are babysitting my sister’s dog Sam. It’s going well so far, except for when I had to explain to him why he’s not allowed his stick inside but I’m allowed mine… (at Exmouth, Devon)
