Hi Folks

Just to let everyone know what is happening with regard to Phil Beer albums.

After moving from Riverside up to the Cullompton studio complex run by Oysterhouse publishing two and a half years ago, I stockpiled a large amount of recorded work which will gradually see the light of day over the next year or so. I have enough material to complete box set 2 and possibly material for a 3rd one. I am now prioritizing the material recorded for a double album 'Boys called William, Girls called Nancy'. This, as you may have guessed is predominantly traditional in flavour and consists of an acoustic disc and an electric disc. The acoustic material is very sparse and the electric disc explores further the idea of my old mate and compatriot Ashley Hutchings of British trad music as actually being our own form of country music.
There are a large amount of acoustic tracks recorded which, upon consideration, don't necessarily fit the theme outlined here and may well appear on a different album together with several instrumental pieces. It is very likely now that this album will be the first to appear as I seem to have ended up already editing and mixing at least six of the tracks already. The working title for this album is-

Phil Beer - Plays guitar and fiddle - sings a bit.

There will be previews shortly when the new 'Chudleigh Roots' website emerges.
There will also be some free downloads.

Watch and wait!

Sailing & Music on Pegasus

Just a heads up. I have access to the good ship Pegasus for a period in mid august this year. I propose to put together a 4 or 5 day sailing and music trip out of Plymouth during this time. This ticks several boxes - interested people get to experience sailing a fantastic traditional sailing vessel with complete access to me in the evenings for informal workshops, singarounds and sessions. I get to sail my favourite ship for a few days and the boat sustains another slice of income which helps to keep it on the go. The price will be somewhere between ?600/700 per head. Everyone stays on board and all meals are included.

Anyone interested should mail me through the office, just email vicky_at_firebrandmusic_dot_co_dot_uk


Thanks for taking a look, hopefully we'll see you at a Phil Beer gig somewhere!
