Back To My Roots 

Happy New Year folks!

Well I took the plunge and just before Christmas I moved back to Liverpool, now living just off Penny Lane very close to where my mum grew up and my grandparents lived for most of their lives! I knew it well as a child The Mystery, Church Road and what was the fabulous Odeon cinema where I saw pretty much all of my childhood classics! I even went to school at Mosspits lane for one year when we lived with my grandparents.

I feel I have come home and its a great area with a great live music scene! I am performing @The Other Place on Allerton Road 10th Feb ( details on my events page) My first gig in Liverpool since Folk On The Dock.

 please come along if you are in the area!

After a few months of disruption I am back in the studio next month so will keep you posted!

I have been rehearsing my stuff with my acoustic band: the fabulous Bill Butterworth on cahon and percussion and multi talented James Zaphron on guitar/vocals... we performed my second original songs gig at Bar 45 last week and had a fabulous response for the packed house.
