         Shipcote hails from Newcastle ( where else?) and has been a stlawart of the music scene in those parts for many a year, both as performer and as promoter. In recent years he has taken to songwriting, too and this is just the latest batch of his songs to make it onto cd. Home recorded ( "at Howard's flat in Wallsend" ) and featuring a whole bunch of Shipcote's musical pals, Shipcote Rides Again brings us the man's own particular take on Americana. This particular collection has something of a sub-tropical air about it, whether it's the voodoo style of Pink Rose, the Mexican border style of It's So Good or the atmosphere of the south seas that comes over from time to time - is that the slack key style I can hear? It's a bizarre image to think of a bunch of Geordies conjuring up all this warmth and sunshine whilst recording in a flat in Wallsend, but conjure it they do and very nicely indeed.

         This is really a cd to pick up at a gig whilst the songs are fresh in your head; Shipcote's vocal, as recorded, is way too soft and diffident to make this radio-friendly fare but, even as you're straining a little to catch what he's singing,  you're going to be bowled over by the charm of the man's music. He writes songs that are warm, humane and down to earth - and also leavened with a little gentle humour. I hope it's only a matter of time before his songs get picked up by more commercial acts so that he can get the songwriting royalties he deserves. As it is, there's some gentle pleasure to be won from getting to know these songs in their original form. There's some excellent musicianship on this album and although his pals in the band get a namecheck on the sleeve, there's no clue as to who played what. The guitar playing and the banjo playing are really fine but with me being a particular fan of the pedal steel it would be nice to know who it is in England, other than B J Cole, who plays the pedal steel so well. Keep an ear out for Shipcote, anyway, definitely something of a hidden treasure.

Book *Alaska* for Your UK House Concert: August 7-15, 2015


"If you can survive a month of Sundays at -54C, you can get through just about anything. Karrie Pavish Anderson gathers inspiration for her Alaskan Soul Folk songs from the challenges of living in a Hoth-like locale with no roads leading out, and no Starbucks within 300 air…

Available in August

In August I shall be venturing to Europe from my home town of Melbourne, Australia, and I'm looking for house concerts.

When I say home-town I use the term loosely, as I spend most of my year on the road here in Australia as well in the USA.

In recent times I've been fortunate enough to play a bunch of large festivals here as well as touring with Steve Earle, John Hiatt, Shawn Colvin, Dave Alvin, The North Mississippi Allstars and Joan Armatrading, just to name…

Artist Needed for Sunday 24 May

Hi All

I have a slot available for a band or artist to perform at a club in Wellesbourne Warwickshire UK this Sunday from 5.00pm. Gig does not pay a fortune but can lead to future gigs in the year. Up beat folk band preferred but single artist considered.

Please get back to me on my direct email daryl.Poland@btopenworld.com by 3.00pm today.

Thanks
