In Situ. – Light Night Liverpool

Good Afternoon!

The latest from my creative journey…..

I was asked a couple of months ago to be involved in this and I’m made up to be included in the commissions for part of tonight’s Light Night Liverpool.

In writing a song for ‘In Situ‘ I wrote ‘Faith on Hope st.‘ to go with the suitcases installation  (A Case History)  and surrounding area on Hope st./Mount st.

I’ve had some good / bad / drunk / sober / hilarious and inspirational times in the area…so there was plenty of inspiration to draw from, such a mixed bag and important area of the City.

All of the tracks for the project are downloadable for people now ready to go on an audio tour around Liverpool this evening.  People will be meeting at 9pm, Anglican Cathedral tonight and experiencing the expressions of local musicians to evoke the chosen places around the city.

Please, also download the audio even if you can’t make this evening and would just like to indulge in some Liverpool inspired songwriting!

Mountains, biking, Radio Merseyside

Fresh from a weekend doing some fantastic experiencing of the Welsh mountains I’m still not aching like I thought I would.

Sunday night I spent the night in the Heights Hotel Llanberis after gigging there, waking up in Snowdonia was pretty amazing. Veggie breakfast and then onto a seriously hilly but very beautiful mountain bike ride. At one point the sound of a Jet seeming to be in the air actually manifest infront of our faces and shot down the valley, Top Gun stylee 🙂 good fun. A walk onto Devils Kitchen ensued. Beautiful. At one point I nearly skidded off the road on the way back because a confused sheep couldn’t decide whether it needed to run infront of my speeding wheels or not…….

The last couple of weeks have brought me some good radio experiences. I was invited to be interviewed for Folkscene on Radio Merseyside by local Harp legend Stan Ambrose. This aired last Thursday and tonight. I will be putting it up here at some point soon.

I also recently received this link for my KVFM session.

 

My last gig of the year is coming up on Friday 16th Dec at Lawrence Batley Theatre Huddersfield. Sound Women. The day before my birthday 🙂

I’ve also just finalised some illustrations I’ve been doing for a children’s book. There will be some examples up here very very soon I’m sure!  A completely new experience was had, I learned much and hoping to do more illustration-type wor.

December excitement!
