Happy New Year!

One day, oh, one day I swear I’m going to remember to write regular updates! The trouble is, I get so excited about actually doing things, I forget that I actually need to tell folks that I’m doing them! But anyway. Over the past few months Celandine have been out promoting our CD, She’s Like the Swallow , around the area and on local radio. We appeared live on Felixstowe and West Norfolk radio (not at the same time, we’re not that clever…) and finished up the year joining the session at our favourite Folk night, the Half Moon in Walton, Felixstowe.

Right now we’re taking a break from performing for a couple of months while we rehearse some new material. Some of it really is new, because we’ve written it ourselves; some of it used to be quite familiar until we got hold of it! Rumour has it that Rosemary’s autoharp may be putting in an appearance in the near future as well.

Elsewhere, I’m thrilled to be able to report that another band I’m involved with, Lightwish, have a new keyboard player and will be out and about later in the year. I’ve done tribute work before, but never quite like this and the songs of Nightwish are a challenge I’m really enjoying. From folk to symphonic metal in the space of a paragraph!

Anyway my first appearance of the new year will be at Slackfolk in Colchester (more details on the events page) which will also be my first solo performance for several months! Better get some new songs finished, then…

Happy New Year!
