A new year, a new album

A rather damp and gloomy January heralded the untimely passing of too many great artists, leading one to inevitably reflect on life and death, the rapid passing of time and other such things. Conversely, these circumstances can also provoke creative impulses and our first rehearsals for the new Polly and the Billets Doux album have yielded rich rewards. Over the coming months, we will spending a lot of time writing and 'wood-shedding', weaving new songs together and testing them in front of a live studio audience.  We also have great festival shows in 2016, including Wilderness in Oxford and Wickham in Hampshire. It also looks like we'll be playing at Glastonbury this year.  Exciting times!

Playing through the end of the summer

We great day at the Bert Jansch foundation festival at the beautiful Bell Inn, Ticehurst. An opportunity to pay tribute to musical inspiration. Steeny and I bumped into him at the Cambridge Folk Festival several years ago, before he passed away. A very modest chap, who could still seriously rip it up on stage! Summer is drawing to a slightly damp close, but we look forward to an Autumn of adventures. Check out our gig listings for events near you Ticehurst xxxxx  

Smoked and Uncut

Following a gig in the lovely Limetree Hotel, the Smoked and Uncut team filmed us performing an acoustic version of Stories. In view of limited space, Dan joined in on Latin "Hips" percussion.
