February 2014

Helen and I met at Sheffield University as students and since then, she’s been writing poetry and I’ve been making music. Helen’s first collection of poems, Missel-Child, has just been published by Carcanet, and she’ll be reading from it. As well as doing solo sets, we’ll be collaborating on a set that will incorporate music and poetry – Helen will read and I’ll respond musically.

The gig takes place at Bishops House, which is worth a visit: it’s a museum housed in a 15th century timber framed house.


First snowdrops of the year

It’s been a day of blue skies, wispy clouds and now a sliver of a new moon setting. The first snowdrops are up and it feels like spring may be on its way.
