I play in a folk duo and we recorded a narrowboat session during the summer. m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=1525195104232500&id=635401819878504

The Narrowboat Sessions
We were really lucky to have the wonderful Crybb aboard. Not just because Kate Beresford and Gary Painting are in such high demand but also because of the logistics behind their babysitting issues, not only does Kate have four children of her own (Yes, apparently she is old enough to have that many!) but Gary has triplets! God only knows where they manage to find the time to rehearse! 🙂 But they obviously do! They've only been playing together for eighteen months but have already written a large repetoire of beautiful, meaningful songs. This one, 'Song for Jo' was written as a tribute to the tragically murdered MP Jo Cox. Jo was just a busy mum like so many others and her untimely death touched so many of us very deeply. :'(

PLEASE SHARE FOR WORLD MENTAL HEALTH DAY. This is a subject close to our hearts as all three of us have worked in mental health services or specialist roles with adults or children. This short film about anxiety and isolation was made by our award winning filmmaker and harpist Simon and set to a song about care in the community, called Doolally Day Out, that appeared on our second album (All Life Is Here). PLEASE SHARE.
