Red River Dialect with Nathan Salsburg, Cavernous Calls @ The Good Life Experience

We had fun touring with Joan Shelley last week! Here is a video of the last song in our set at the Good Life Experience - a full band version of Cavernous Calls from our Tender Gold album. We were lucky to be joined by our honorary 7th member Nathan Salsburg on guitar!

Recent EP release


We sort of forgot about this blog! In the time since last posting we have expanded to a six person band, welcoming drummer Kiran Bhatt and recorded a new album with that line-up, coming out in early 2018 (more about that soon). We have also released a four song EP, comprising recordings that we made around the time of Tender Gold and Gentle Blue. You can listen to or download that EP via the player below.

We are playing our next full band show on September 15th at The Good Life Experience festival in Flintshire. David will be playing some solo shows opening for Joan Shelley. The dates are:

Sept 12th London, Bush Hall
Sept 14th Guildford, St Marys Church
Sept 17th Hebden Bridge, Trades Club

Lastly here is a video from our recent show at Servant Jazz Quarters of the whole band playing a new version of the song For Ruth and Jane, from the Tender Gold and Gentle Blue LP.

Just back from one of the best weeks I've ever known, travelling around the UK with Joan Shelley, Glen Dentinger and Nathan Salsburg, with whom I had the honour of playing a couple of songs each night. Here's a video from Glasgow's The Glad Cafe thanks to Craig Smillie. Thanks to all the promoters for the hospitality along the way and to everyone who came out to a show. If you are in Belgium, Germany, The Netherlands, Italy or Switzerland you should try and reach one of the shows that they will be playing in the coming weeks.

Solo UK tour in March with Joan Shelley


Really looking forward to these first shows of 2016 where I will be opening the bill for Joan Shelley on the UK leg of her EU tour. Joan, in collaboration with Nathan Salsburg, made one of the finest folk lp's in recent memory last year. It's called Over and Even and you can see the pair performing a few tracks from it in the video below these dates. Hope to see some friends, old and new, across these dates. Sadly we won't be making it southwest, or to Wales. Hopefully sometime in the future. I will be trying out a bunch of new songs.

Happy New Year!
