Well, someone asked for a tracklisting of mine and Miranda’s forthcoming album, so here is a bit of a clue sheet, for those with beady eyes… This is the all important album making tick sheet, still stuck on Phil’s studio’s wall. All the album tracks are there, but not necessarily in that order…

If you’d like to get a real sneak preview of our album, pre order now! You’ll receive your copy ahead of the release date and can also get various other goodies, should you desire. You’ll also be helping us fund the creation of the album. Link in biog.

Me and Miranda are so excited to finally be able to open pre-orders for our debut album, Unquenching Fire!

It has taken a lot to get us to this point - many hours of arranging and rehearsing, and then @phillip.henry working his magic on the recording and mixing. You can expect traditional songs taken into the tumbler of many influences and reworked to feature harmonies and strings. Two voices digging deep into their roots. There is a standard pre-order option, or a deluxe package which includes a signed album, limited edition print, and everyone’s favourite - a special teatowel😍 Pre-order link in biog!

Thank you for all your support! M + H x

Farewell to beautiful Marlborough and many thanks again to Andrew and all at Marlborough Folk and Roots for having us. When we very first visited, Andrew and Sarah recommended we visit Silbury Hill, and we’ve gone back at every opportunity since! Today was Rosa’s first visit, and we walked up West Kennet Long Barrow and had a picnic. The air was loud with skylarks. It was wonderful.

Last few gigs of this tour - we’re off to Wells tonight…

Particularly special night at the always-special Nettlebed Folk Club last night because my dad is home! And he came to the show! Thanks to everyone who has sent kind thoughts our way, it’s been a long journey. And thank you to Mike and all at the club who flew the Ukrainian flag in my family’s honour, we were very touched. Slava Ukraini!

I invite you to our fun new band game called “Spot Sacha”.

Yes, that’s our sound engineer Edd trying to conduct a sound check with his head in his hands.

Thanks all who came to a fab gig at Hailsham Pavilion, and wishing the promoter Bob Perry a very happy retirement! We will miss coming to visit this lovely venue. We are losing places to play thick and fast, post pandemic, so do come out and use them, or lose them.

Tomorrow a new venue for us: The Stag Theatre in Sevenoaks!

A day off in lovely Lewes! Recharging before our gig tomorrow in SEVENOAKS 🎶❤️

We’ve been getting some really lovely feedback from audiences about the show, including this email after last night’s show:

“My wife and I have just attended our first Gigspanner concert (at Hailsham Pavilion) and it ranks as one of the musical highlights of our lives.” Thank you so much!

We very much hope to see some of you tomorrow at The Stag Theatre, Sevenoaks 🎶🎶🎶
