Eight gigs booked for November - Liam O’Maonlai twice, Martyn Joseph twice, Gerry Colvin, Luke Jackson, Seth Lakeman and Martin Simpson. Hopefully making up for lost time unless any get cancelled as restrictions increase 🤔

Having that.   Smiley


It's only taken me three and a bit years, but I've finally picked up a sealed copy of this - for under £50, which I'm rather pleased about  Smiley

Anybody getting the “new” FC album Fame and Glory announced today on the website?


No idea what the one unreleased track is like, of course, but approach with great caution is my personal advice.  Plenty of other opinions are available too....

 RT dislikes the first LP with a passion , told me so himself , in 2018 , confirmed by Simon 2 months later


Never heard that myself...I can find quotes where he talks about it quite fondly too, so I suspect you're maybe overstating that at least somewhat?  Anyway, what the hell does he know - we already know he has totally irrational loathing of some of his own albums too, so he has form  Wink Grin

In truth, I think both of them, whilst decent albums which I love, actually function at a level somewhat below that of the first five....


Not convinced about the debut, but otherwise, I wouldn't necessarily disagree.

Oh, it's a brilliant album, utterly brilliant...although I guess context is all (would I love it as much if it was produced in LA, for instance?).

There is a new series on Radio 4 presented / narrated by Michael Morpurgo exploring " the ways in which folk songs have reflected timeless human experiences, both in the past and today". The first episode (Monday 19th Oct) concentrated on Johnny I Hardly Knew Ye, and had spoken contributions from a host of folk artists, including Ashley Hutchings. Next week's song is Four Loom Weaver. Programme title is Michael Morpurgo's Folk Journeys.
