June 15th 2022 – gig list update.

Thanks for re-visiting my website news pages!

The main purpose of this post is to update my gig list below, and to confirm the permanent price drop for my (mostly) light-hearted autobiography, which you can see in my shop here:  

It’s a year now since my book went on sale. Because so many people responded so enthusiastically, the book covered its first print run immediately from online sales alone – thanks! The second print run has now also covered costs. As we lost (through Covid) most of our opportunities during the 2021 festival season to do special book events, we’re now on another push for sales this Christmas. (A big thank you to Southwell Festival who did fit us in for a very enjoyable reading/selling/signing session.) The book price can come down now, since our overheads are now also down. If you enjoyed reading the book, please think of buying one for someone else this Christmas.

On the gig front, I was lucky this summer to get to play live (solo and with Parky) at a couple of festivals and a special concert in York, plus the Whitby Folk Week online event – thanks!

Since then, along with Huddersfield Irish lads Aidan Kilroy and Martin Lennon, we have re-started our trio The Rogues. We had our first return gig last weekend at an Irish wedding – brilliant – it was great to sing all the old favourites from my youth again.

Our band Archer Matthews Russell has had an enforced break due to various health issues, but after a couple of informal sessions and chats, we’ll soon be ready to brush up our repertoire again. Watch this space to find out when we’re ready to face the world again!
