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.”

Found this recording from a session I threw together a couple of years ago. I’d been listening to a lot of John Hartford and wondered how he might’ve used horns on his music if he’d had the chance. https://soundcloud.com/bensomers/squirrell-hunters-mix3
