ON THE ROAD
I'm currently on the road, travelling through England, playing some of my favourite festivals and shows. Having not owned a car for 10 years, I'm now driving around in a giant Renault Espace. I've taken all the seats out the back, added a double futon mattress, bedding and lighting... very cosy indeed. It's an experiment in living from a vehicle and living simply. So far, so good.
I'm meeting some great musicians on the road, such as these beauties from the festival Colourfest in Dorset. Loved jamming my song 'Gypsy Roots' in the fields surrounding the main festival. That's Devon singer-songwriter Elise Yuill to my right... we are doing an evening concert in a 700 year old chapel outside of Dartmoor in August.
I'm currently in Wales housesitting with a friend and a sweet terrier that walks round in circles in its old age barking at no-one. Next stop Bristol and a run of shows through Devon, Dorset and Wales...finishing at one of my favourite festivals Into The Wild in Sussex. Hope to see you on the road...or sign up to the mailing list for some exclusive video clips and my new 'Live in London EP'.
