Rising Sun Acoustic Night

Tonight I'm playing an acoustic night at the Rising Sun in Crewe. It's a totally acoustic night with everything played through the air without any microphones or PA system.

I'm going to be recording with a portable recorder and if the quality is good enough I'll make some songs available for download through the website.

I'll be playing guitar and ukulele as well as singing and will be joined by Nick Bayes on acoustic bass. We'll be joined by various musical friends including Suzie Does It and Phil Maddocks.

Sidelines - live on the banks of Loch Ness

I've just got back from a few days up in the Highlands of Scotland and on the way back decided to record a quick video on the banks of a (very windy) Loch Ness:

The song is called Sidelines and was written last summer. Although it's not been recorded except in demo form I've started to play the song in my live set, particularly at more acoustic or folk styled venues. Let me know what you think, and whether you'd like to hear it recorded properly.
