On a sunny Winter’s day, just before my fingers froze from the cold, I filmed a new video for an old song.
‘Chimera’ from the debut album is recorded and filmed live overlooking the city from a hill in South London.

Thanks to everyone who came along to St Pancras Old Church for Tara Minton’s single launch. I’ve been wanting to perform there for a long, long time, and it was well worth the wait.

Work on the second album is now complete. I’ve been lucky to have some wonderful friends helping out, with accordions, horns, flute, strings and some odd percussion.

The release date is set for this February, but for the meantime here is a sneak peak and a free download.

As the summer is now in full, mighty swing I will be tagging along to as many festivals as I can, and playing wherever there are ears, wellies and refreshing drinks. Next stops are Cambridge Folk, Wilderness, Green Man, Party 4 Patrick. If you are attending any of these, come and say hello.

I will be posting about all performances

I am very excited to announce I am playing and hosting a new totally acoustic night starting in London.

Working with TV Nights, the team behind the music at Notting Hill Arts Club and Ronnie Scott’s, we will bring you stripped-down, unplugged performances from some of the most exciting emerging artists.

The first night will take place on the 26th of February in a quite remarkable secret location, so remarkable I wish I could tell you, but I can’t…

Precisely one year after my debut album launch at the Gallery Cafe, I was very pleased to return for a serious festive hoedown. It was a great pleasure to play again alongside Patch & the Giant, Josienne Clarke and Ben Walker, Sophie Jamieson, Laish and many more of the wonderful friends I have met this year.

By significant coincidence I also sold the very last debut album from the 1
st pressing. New and improved 2nd edition CDs are now on the way, with a wonderful feeling of completeness.

Happy Winterval.
