I’m playing a very special London show at The Harrison on Sat 9 October with my band. This venue has a tiny capacity of 20, and will be filmed live.
I will play a mixture of material from across all my albums, accompanied by my wonderful band for the occasion: Rastko Rašić on drums, John Parker on upright bass, Jack Harris on guitars and Jed Bevington on fiddle.
In-venue tickets are very limited; more tickets are available for the live stream attendance. Click here for more information.
I have just got back from Sidmouth, where I played as part of the EFDSS Showcase on the Blackmore Gardens stage at the prestigious Sidmouth Folk Festival.
It was such a beautiful stage and location, and the people were incredibly friendly. I think we were all just pinching ourselves that we were at an actual festival, and able to really play real music to real people!
I spoke to Mark Radcliffe for the BBC Radio 2 Folk Show on Wed 5 May about my new album ‘Invisible Music: folk songs that influenced Angela Carter’.
He played three tracks from the record, including Kathryn Williams‘ beautiful reading from Carter’s ‘The Bloody Chamber’.
Listen at around 25 mins for my part, but the whole show is fantastic.
Well, this is it.
‘Invisible Music: folk songs that influenced Angela Carter’ flies the nest today.
The Guardian/Observer **** – a ‘vibrant, insightful tribute’
BBC Radio 2 Folk Show – ‘intoxicating…. an impressive album that really deserves to be heard’
