We’re lucky to live near a beautiful park, with some astonishing, enormous old trees. But we’ve been puzzling why this one, which we took to be an oak, still has his leaves when all his neighbours are naked?! Can anyone identify him?

New year, new projects…
During the last lockdown Phil renovated our studio-come-second-bedroom, including making these beautiful built in wardrobes from scratch (he doesn’t need to retrain, he could be a carpenter!) Now we’re back up and running in music mode and very excited to get recording some new material…

Hope you’re all doing ok out there in #lockdown3

Mike Brocken of @bbc Radio Merseyside made a great series of Folkscene programmes that went out over the festive period. We’re blown away by his kind words about both our new Edgelarks album, #HenryMartin , and our work with the #GigspannerBigBand

Our track Henry Martin starts his show from 28/12, while his #AlbumOfTheYear show places #HenryMartin at number 4 and the GBB’s #NaturalInvention at number 1!!! Thanks Mike and Happy New Year!

Tell me your New Year’s traditions. There are so many rituals around Christmas, but with a very different style of NYE looming, I’d love to know how you plan to meaningfully mark the fresh page when the animal costumes / bubbles / friends are absent… (Ok so you may all have the animal costumes and bubbles lined up despite everything, but these are definitely out for me this year!)

How was your Christmas?

We were missing people a lot, but luckily had some giant inflatable antlers to lighten the mood. Hope you all got through this strange time ok ❤️

We’re delighted that the #gigspannerbigband album #NaturalInvention has been shortlisted by #BrightYoungFolk for their album of the year! However, we need you to vote for it - via the Bright Young Folk Facebook page 🥰 Thank you!

We are so excited about our ALBUM LAUNCH for Henry Martin! One of very few live gigs for us this year. The in-the-room tickets sold out some time ago, but TWO TICKETS have just newly become available! If you’d like to snap them up, please email sarah.tobin@plymouth.ac.uk

If you can’t be there in person you can still get tickets for the live stream (which will remain viewable for a couple of weeks after the event too) - tickets for that from: https://www.ticketsource.co.uk/firebrand-music/edgelarks-live-album-launch-from-ipplepen/e-gjqldev (working link in bio)

The live stream will be free to watch for our wonderful subscribers, whose support and encouragement has kept us going this year (and, subscribers, no need to do anything or book - the private watch link will be put up on the subscriber forum on the day of the gig).
