|| This year,
Steeleye Span have been taking things relatively easy which has given
me an opportunity to complete a new solo album 'Thirteen Reasons'
released Monday September 5th.
The album, in its eclecticism, is undoubtedly the most accurate representation
of me thus far, with its solo acoustic instrumentals, electric folk-rock,
country flavour songs, bluegrass banjo & mandolin picking, steel
slide guitar playing, stories, ballads, light-hearted pieces, and
even a George Formby-esque ukulele track.
'Thirteen Reasons' features guest appearances from what I'd describe
as nothing less than the cream of the British music scene, including:
Maddy Prior, Chris While, Rick Kemp, Maartin Allcock, Joe Broughton,
Peter Knight, Liam Genockey, Tim Harries and Pete Abbott.
