“Yeah but I like being able to do what I want!” said Mark, a friend who’s been an actor for over 30 years.

We sat with him over tea and discussed, amongst other things, the challenges of self promotion. 

I have to give it to him

he has a point

Greeting from Appalachia,

we’re in Asheville, it’s late summer and the bees are almost as busy as we are.

After successfully hopping across the pond, we launched straight into a busy week and have been playing catch up with admin since our recording session last month in Bristol.

The five tracks that we recorded will form an EP of traditional folk ballads that we have re-arranged ourselves.  Aside from one, these are songs from England and Ireland that all crossed over the Atlantic at some point and were changed in the travelling process.

We aim to continue the journey of these songs with this album which will be released in the spring.  (Keep an ear out.)

Over the weekend we got to open for Paperhand Puppet Intervention and played two shows to a packed house, followed by a show at Isis Music Hall, here in Asheville.

With a slightly smaller following here in the US, we were glad for such a warm welcome.  If you’re in NC then you need to check out Paperhand (a giant puppet troop) at they run through September so there’s still time to catch a show!

Over the next month we will be mostly in the North Carolina Piedmont but dipping into Virginia and South Carolina too, we’d love to see y’all at a show:
