****GUARDIAN REVIEW OF LAUNCH GIG AT KING'S PLC
Sunday
Nov022014

This Saturday 8th November, 2014 at Kings Place, London

THE ARMS WIDE ORCHESTRA:  I'll be joining the fabulous Eliza Carthy and a host of singers including Olivia Chaney and Devil's Interval in the spirit of singing out good and proper.  We will be joined by Simon Richmond and Laurence Hunt who intriguingly will be combining various electronica sounds and samples... looking forward to this:  

The Arms Wide Orchestra concert is shaping up to be a barnstorming and emotional evening of community singing, couched in electronic and found sound strangeness, both looking back to a shared past and forward to a new language, another way of communicating old and cherished messages.'

- Eliza Carthy

Triple Nominations from BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards for Hidden Seam & Lisa Knapp

I am absolutely delighted and honoured to announce that Hidden Seam and I have been nominated in no less than 3 (!!!) categories at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2013!!!

The categories I'm included in are Folk Singer Of The Year, Best Album and Best Non-Traditional Track for Two Ravens (which the wonderful Martin Carthy so beautifully played on).  

You can listen to the BBC Radio 2 broadcast here which includes snippets of music from all the nominees for each category. I am particularly bowled over by Mark Radcliffe's lovely comments on Hidden Seam "...an amazing, beguilling and enigmatic piece of work".. and also Colin Irwin who said the album was "...really pushing the boundaries…to construct a song about the shipping forecast is sheer genius"  Whoop whoop I say!  

*The Best Album category is actually a public vote, you can cast yours here..

As they mention on the programme, it goes without saying that Gerry Diver, who produced and played on the album, deserves a special mention and huge thanks for his contribution both on the album and in live work.  

I'd like to give thanks also to everyone who played on the album and to Navigator's team for all their hard work and to everyone else who has supported the album and myself in one way or another.

Excitement aside, I am extrememly humbled and honoured to be included in the company of all the nominees for the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards this year and am really looking forward to the ceremony, not least because there will be live performances from Susan Vega, Clannad and more.

For anyone interested in attending the Awards Ceremony will be held on February 19, 2014 at The Albert Hall and you can buy tickets here.

Yippee!
