Season’s greetings to all music lovers – Christmas 2012

December 22nd, 2012

Thank you to all the enthusiastic audiences and live music venues for a great musical year.

 

A British Singer songwriter sings an English Christmas song
 

It has been a great year for song writing and getting to know my live and online audience better, how my original English lyrics can touch so many people and that they are willing to come on a musical journey with me.

 

Ballad Of An Ordinary Man‘ was my political song of the year; it talks to most people about the changing political horizons and is quite thought provoking I’m informed. There is another album being worked on; the hard part is knowing which new songs to put on it, which ones to leave out and how to keep it simple.

 

A big thanks goes out to all the loyal live music venues and festival organisers throughout the UK that keep inviting me back to perform my Anglicana finger-style guitar technique, also to the music reviewers and Radio stations that share my music with a wider listening audience.

 

It is heartening to hear that being a British musician can still make a difference to how people feel.

 

Thank you email sent out with a new music upload to share.

Pete Christie does an amazing version of Richard Thompson’s ‘Beeswing’.

Great gig shouts for upcoming music events in Market Harborough and Northamptonshire later in the month “…and based on this track would be worth going to see him…”
