I write to say something about my health.
I am having to drop out of my November & December bookings, due to undergoing an operation on 5th November (for bowel cancer).
I wish to head off any alarm or upset about my condition by saying that I will be gigging as usual throughout 2014, while also working to restore my erstwhile perfect health!
I am happy, unbelievably well-supported by my family & friends, and as positive as you can imagine. I will be very busy getting better, so please understand that I won't be able to respond to all messages.
Looking forward to seeing you along the road soon.
The last year or so has been very busy for me - gigging to support the release of Grace Notes' 5th CD for our 20th Anniversary, followed by my 3rd solo release, Won't You Come Away. I also launched my Kitchen Songs project, which has resulted in a lovely archive of interviews and performances - as well as being subject of two radio programmes for BBC Radio Leeds. There is more to come when my schedule allows, and I look forward to that very much.
In the meantime, I am so happy to see the 'kids' - Joe Tilston, Molly Jones (with her partner, Lee Southall) and Martha Tilston - all out performing and creating beautiful music.
For the remainder of 2013, I will be performing at clubs & festivals with Paul Downes and Grace Notes - and hope to meet you along the way. A diary highlight is my U.S. tour with Paul in late June/early July. It's many years since either of us worked there, so that promises to be a treat - and a great chance to catch up with old friends.
Thanks again for your support. Bye for now
