That was the summer? it happened on August 28th this year in Britain, between about 2 and 4 in the afternoon. We hope you were luckier elsewhere in the northern hemisphere. We did have the Olympics and Paralympics as compensation, though, and very wonderful they were too. Sales of burgers, beer and bicycles have all rocketed.


We just added up and found we'd played 20 festivals this year (including our own Big Session), and we were quite impressed. No wonder our feet are sore. Thanks for some great gigs, especially T?nder Festival in Denmark at the end of August, where we had the rare chance to play both with June Tabor on the Friday and "as ourselves" on the big new open-air stage on the Saturday, with The Low Anthem in support. Cracking stuff all round.


But after a brief rest in September we'll be on the road again, as follows:
