Faber & Faber have obtained the UK rights to RT's memoir Beeswing: Britain, Folk Rock and the End of the 60s. Not due until Autumn next year though.

Unexpected, but very welcome. Looking forward to reading this.

By the way, according to his Winter Tour programme notes, Peggy's writing his memoirs with Nigel Schofield at the moment, so there's an imminent Fairport biography double whammy.

My partner and I are running the Chester 10k on 10 March to raise money for our local hospice, and to raise awareness of the hospice movement.  Please click on my website for more info.  Thanks.

Does anyone know if the biography of Swarb Now Be Thankful: The Lives of Dave Swarbrick by Jason Wilson and Jill is still in the pipeline?

I hope so, though Professor Wilson will have to be scrupulously accurate without the benefit of Swarb's proofing and fact-checking, to avoid being struck by lightning.

Martin Carty informed me last night that Professor Wilson is still talking to Swarb's friends & family collecting material. It serms its still at least a year away.

Martin also said that Ken Hunt is writing Martin's bio
