It’s nice to be understood…

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.”

Brass Hysteria – Music For Change

We had a great gig on The Folkestone Harbour Arm last Saturday. It’s a beautiful setting and there will be gigs and concerts there throughout the summer. Here’s a clip from our gig.

Ben Somers String Band in Norway

Its looking like we’ll be playing a beautiful little festival in Steinkjer ,  North of Trondheim in Norway this June and it got me thinking about the music of Annlaug Borsheim. Here’s a medley of two tunes which will feature on the new studio album. Annlaug, from Norway wrote the second tune ‘Fasiken’, Fasiken is actually a Swedish word for……well you look it up. We filmed this video at La Sonora De Gracia in Barcelona during a tour last year.

We’ll be tearing it up once again this Sunday, February the 11th starting at 8pm. You can find tickets here.
