Ginny and I have been writing some songs before and during lockdown and had a chance to record a couple. This one is about Norfolk… I’m missing the salty sea and long walks on the windy beaches…. still tweaking but here’s a little preview!
Ginny and I are singing some First Aid Kit, Love Hurts and a rewrite of an old classic ….. come and have a listen. John Hegley will be performing alongside some other great acts.
As well as my other work, I do a small amount of editing and writing. I often work with and for the novelist Danny Scheinmann (my husband!) – reading and editing his work. I’m also delighted to be working with my friend, the photographer Nadav Kander, crafting words to express his art. “Dust” is the 3rd book that he has asked me to work on. He writes, I listen, and edit, and together we find some meaning and form to his thoughts. Get along to the exhibition if you can. His work is amazing.
We had a great night at Paper Dress Vintage. I told a traditional nordic story – Seal Woman -adapted from the book “Women Who Run with the Wolves”, and Nina Miranda (Smoke City/ Zeep) and I sang two songs which we wrote together, accompanied on guitar by Alex Kingsbury. The first one was inspired by some beautiful footage of icebergs that we saw in the documentary “Village at the end of the World” directed by Sarah Gavron and David Katznelson. The second song was inspired by a poem that I wrote about day dreaming on train journeys.
