We took Lucy before she took off up North out down the backlanes to a little pub for a drink or two and something to eat. The pub held to the side of what some have said was an old Roman byway. It was a great little place. It had a kind of independent air […]

Just got back from appearing at the National Book Festival of Scotland at Wigtown. We ere not sure what a literary festival  would make of  a writer singing songs and backed by a Tuba player!  No need to worry though  – the session was sold out and had to be moved to a bigger venue […]
