Wimborne Folk Festival Livestream

Did a livestream for Wimborne Folk Festival, Really hoping this time next year we’ll all be able to be there in person.

We set up at one end of my violin making workshop and laid in an ethernet cable from the house – all went well!

The new normal #2

VegfestUK invited us to produce a video for their online festival in August, so we did!
Recorded separately in our own luthiery workshops, but put together as a mini-concert for you to enjoy. We each played the whole session through all in one take, complete with interactions, so it is as live as you can get while being apart!

The new normal……

If you can’t beat them, join them!
We’ve done our best to produce a “live” performance with both of us performing a short “gig” in one take. It was actually rather good fun to do and I think we’ll be doing some more!

How it was…..

Remember going out, and gigs and stuff? Here’s a little reminder of a lovely gig we did at Rosslyn Court in Margate, it was quiet as “Storm Dennis” was blowin’ in… little did we realise what was to blow in a few weeks later!!

Have a gig on us!

In the total absence of live gigs just at the moment, we thought we’d try to bring a few smiles by putting out a video of a gig we did just over a year ago… warts and all…  at The Albatros, an old Dutch cargo vessel, moored in Wells-next-the-Sea. It was a two and a half hour gig, which I’ve edited down, so – as they say in the adverts “some sequences are shortened”! I’ve tried hard to keep the feel of the gig, so there are a few blemishes and I hope it still feels live! Enjoy, and hope to see you all soonest!


No gigs then.

Worrying news at the moment with the covid outbreak.

Obviously we are cancelling gigs for two months initially and will keep an eye on how things progress.

We’re going to be spending the next few weeks usefully, Dave & I will both be in our respective workshops making instruments, writing music and maybe even recording something – Keep in touch, sign up on our mailing list and if we do any online performances we can let you know!

Stay safe and best wishes to you all.


Dark Materials!!

Still chuckling to myself over one of the classiest bits of heckling at a recent gig. Whilst some fumbling with complicated tuner was in progress, some wit called out:

“It’s an elethiometer”.

Still chuckling.
