In putting together the new #steveandbensomers album we decided to record dad’s song #takethemoneyandrun , it was written before I was born!. Amazing playing with the family @robupdegraff & @wesleygibbens Always a pleasure working with our good friend @jbwolfypilon at @buffalorecordingstudio , great live room, wicked gear. We’re playing @harrisonpub all day folk fest on October 21st. @ukcountrynews @countrybloguk #newmusic #steveandbensomerscountryband #nashvilletolondon #londongigs
Very occasionally, without any prompting, someone writes about your music in a way that you always hoped. Thanks to Danny Neill at Folk Radio UK for a lovely review.
My favourite quote from the review:
“Well, the cover images show him to be a heads up, can-do sort of chap. The kind of house guest who wouldn’t mind helping with the washing up.”
The 6 week run of Shakespeare’s ‘Two Noble Kinsmen’ has finally ended. I was lucky enough to stand in on double bass for several shows and even luckier to get to wear this ‘hip medieval get up’ and tread the boards The music was a lot of fun to play, I’ve been a fan of Eliza Carthy’s playing and music for awhile so it was great to hang out with her and play some of her music.
