Maida Vale with Mary Epworth

Last Sunday I had the privilege of playing guitar and singing with Mary Epworth at Maida Vale, as part of the BBC’s 6 Music 10th Anniversary celebrations. You can listen to the session here (link expires on Easter Monday).

Apart from the amazing experience of performing my first radio session in such an historic venue and making my band debut on the electric guitar, other highlights included:

– Meeting Cerys Matthews

– Having a conversation* with Joe Boyd

– Seeing and attempting to play a cuĂ­ca, and failing miserably

Looking forward to doing lots more gigs with Mary over the summer! You can find out more about Mary here.
