May 2005

Hi Everyone,

Hope you are all well and looking forward to the festival season - I know I am! I have just got back from my visit to Asturias in Northern Spain. I was joined by Ed Boyd and John Joe Kelly for a performance, and had a great time. In bad need of sleep now though - Ed and John Joe sure know how to party! Thankyou to Guillermo, Marcos and Sonia who looked after me while I was out there. Such wonderful hospitality, good food and lots of fun, not forgetting the lovely audiences.

There are more pictures of my time in Asturias up on the website now if you want to take a look.

2005 is shaping up to be a very busy year. A full list of my performances confirmed so far for the year is listed below. It would be great to see you at a gig. I'm currently working on new material for my next album. It's hard work but enjoyable.

I've recently started doing some double bill gigs with the wonderful harpist Harriet Earis. You can find her website here: www.harrietearis.com. We've enjoyed 2 performances to great audiences at the Black Lion in Pontrhydfendigaid and The Cooper's Arms in Aberystwyth, and have performances coming up at the Last Inn, Hengoed, Nr Oswestry in May, The Music Hall, Shrewsbury in June and Café Loco in Newtown in October. Full details are available on the website.

Received a fantastic quote from Andy Kershaw of BBC Radio 3 recently:

"Hugely talented. Eyes Wide Open is one of my favourite CDs of the year." --ANDY KERSHAW, BBC RADIO 3

Thanks Andy!

I'm off to Holmfirth Folk Festival next weekend. I performed there in 2003 and had a great time, and I'm looking forward to returning again.

Lots of festivals are confirmed for this year, and I hope to see you at one of them. Please come and say hi!

Love Harriet x
