Studio traveller

One of the albums I played a track from - the one by Jerry Cahill - is called Armchair Traveller. I guess we on rootsandshoots are studio travellers. Martin and I enjoy travelling far and wide but we enjoy coming home too - and this is reflected in the music we play. Anyway, it was just me tonight as Martin was ill. Get well soon, Martin!

Nicky plus Katie

In a short stretch of time on rootsandshoots tonight we had an amazing variety of styles and tempos in the singing and guitar playing of the talented and lovely Nicky Swann. Such beautiful songs - and what an amazing voice she has! Nicky brought along with her an accomplished and equally lovely accompanist, the cahon player Katie Marie. Many, many thanks to both musicians for their wonderful set this evening.

Nicky's songs for us were Diving, Runaway and New Found Lands, all her own compositions.

From Nicky's album Matches And Dispatches, we played the self-penned Longtime and a magical version of I Want To Hold Your Hand.
