Covid 19 Compositions
In April 2020, during the Covid-19 lockdown, I embarked on an ambitious project to create an album serving three functions: the album would have 19 tracks, all my own compositions; it would raise money for the charity Help Musicians who provided invaluable support for musicians who experienced a loss of income due to lockdown; it would bring together a unique collaboration of folk musicians from around the UK who I have been lucky enough to meet and work with since I came to folk music when I was 9 years old.
These musicians have never all played in the same room together and probably never will; nor in all likelihood will they ever appear on the same CD again. A huge part of this project was bringing people together through music while we were separated by lockdown. I hope that when you listen to the album you can hear this collaborative feeling, and most importantly that you enjoy the music that these wonderful people have made with me.
