Bristol Bike Festival

I’ll be playing a couple of tunes at Jack Thurston’s talk at Bristol Bike Festival on Wed 9th July 6-8pm on the history of cycle touring.

Jack is the author of “Lost Lanes” and host of Resonance FM’s “The Bike Show”.

Afterwards we’ll be cycling back to Jack’s home town of Abergervenny and chatting

about the India trip and the Sparrow Sings album in “A Rolling Interview”, playing a few songs along the way.

New Year New Light

Look out for a “rolling interview” sometime in the Springtime with the Bike Show from Resonance FM. I’ll be taking to my bike with guitar  on the pannier rack and playing songs from the Sparrow album.

You will be able to buy the Sparrow album from the brilliant bicycle magazine Boneshaker here with a special deal on the CD and magazine, in what I believe what’s known in the trade, as a “bundle”.

Meanwhile Jet will be playing at the Undergrowth Collective’s folk night on Wed 26th February. It’s a great little evening, with top folk acts in the cosy room upstairs and tasty ales to sup from the bar below.

See you in the sunshine and the moonshine.

Jet

Playing at Warmley Signal Box!

I’m playing at the recently refurbished train signal box in Warmley by the Bristol Bath cycle path on Sat 12th Oct 2-3pm. It’s part of  a festival to celebrate the reopening of the signal box-see here

I’ll be singing songs from “Soft Soft Soft the Sparrow Sings” album and photos from the bike trip to India will be up in the signal box.

It’s a great place to be playing as the bike trip to India began and ended on the Bristol to Bath bike path.

Train whistle. Bike ping. Ping Ping.

You can listen to the track being played out on Gideon’s show last Thursday here at 1hr 18mins in.  It will be available for a few days more. Sounds like Gideon appreciates the ole’ two wheels as he had a bike themed show in July.

You can also hear “Bird Above Snake Below” on the August “Folk Cast”  show here. Thanks to Phil Widdows for including it.
