I Am the River #33. The link for the Video is down at the bottom of this page.
This is about the closest I'm getting to play live gigs as a small crowd gathered at Cellardyke Harbour to listen and watch. I am missing the connection with folks through
music and performing. Instead I've been promoting the new album GAP IN THE FENCE
through online activity and releasing one single every month.
I've also collaborated with the wonderful movement artists Lucy May Wilson and Kathryn Spence. We've made three lockdown videos with 16sillyducks. You can catch them on the link below.
I was to be featuring on various stages at Belladrum Tartan Heart Festival this weekend, but instead am getting packed for a three week visit to Wester Ross for some repair work to an old fisherman's cottage by the sea and the offgrid life.
So despite the fact that there's no electricity and the signal is poor I'm going to try and stage the occasional 'broadcast'. I have already lined up a session with #RKC who are based just outside Paris. I'll also try to post small videos online via Facebook. link below.
I have been making connections with a whole host of local and community Radio Stations who have been fantastic at featuring all the music released so far. And let's not forget the everlasting Iain Anderson Show on BBC Scotland, Tom Robinson on BBC Radio 6, BBC Radio Wilstshire and the network of Blues and Roots stations who have all featured the music and songs. A big thankyou. AS part of this promotional activity please see a Q&A I did in July with Decent Music and a review of the Album with Liverpool Sound and Vision.
And finally the music. If you do the Spotify thing then the link to my Artist page is below. Stream, like, follow and share. You can also listen to the music on this site and of course the CD is available as a limited advance copy (28 left as of 1st August). It launches on 2nd October. Take care and fare thee well Tom :)
