Look at this gorgeous poster! But don't stand staring at how beautiful it is for too long because the tickets for this are selling really quickly - looks unlikely there will be any on the door now. Lots of faves on the line up and some new names to me too. We are full band for this one. #leedslivemusic #artwork #poster #folk #newmusic #newfolk #altfolk #hydeparkbookclub #leedsmusic #fullband ... See MoreSee Less
First time at a packed-out @thecrescentyork on Saturday night for @kitty_vr to launch her debut ep in style - great show from her as ever and band were superb too. A real joy to be part of this one - a great venue with really friendly, welcoming staff, @stubellis on sound, a chance to finally see @kindarlin , a lively but appreciative audience and a 'green room' with beer and pizza! Couldn't really ask for more but then got sent these excellent photos from @picktheflowers too - thanks Chloe! Really hope to return to play York again soon - thank you once again to Kitty for inviting me to play. #kittyvr #silverreserve #laurakindelan #livemusic #livelooping #york #yorklivemusic #solo #slowmusic #musicphoto #music #photography @ The Crescent Community Venue ...

Delighted to be asked to join @kitty_vr again in York on Saturday 17th at @thecrescentyork . Think this time at @fortyfiveuk was the last time we played together and it was a really fun gig - excited to see Kitty doing her thing with the full band and I'm sure she's excited to see how little I've progressed since last time! Get down York people!! #livemusic #yorklivemusic #blackandwhite #fuji #xt20 #kittyvr #silverreserve #livelooping ... See MoreSee Less
This is all that remains of the print on my Silver Jews tour t-shirt. I've been a fan since I heard 'Black and brown blues' on an early @dominorecordco compilation and have obsessed over Berman's music and words ever since. Listening to the Purple Mountains album this week was like spending time in the company of a dear old friend, the kind where you just want to shut up and let them do the talking. Lyrically masterful as expected, it felt even more open than before, profound, playful, witty yet full of sadness and despair - it might be his greatest work. On Tuesday night I was texting favourite lines back and forth with a friend and I'm grateful I got to enjoy it without this new context. So sorry to hear of your passing, David - you were my favourite writer.
'We'd never been promised there will be a tomorrow So let's just call it the death of an heir of sorrows'
What! That is so sad. It’s been the album of my summer. His lyrics are so good - all things you said they are. Like you, I’ve been sending lyrics to friends for I share you perspective of them. Sure puts a lot of the album in a different context.
The dead know what they’re doing when they leave this world behind...all the suffering gets done by those they leave behind. Nights that won’t happen, time we won’t spend. Time we won’t spend, with each other again.
Always a pleasure to share a stage with @peoplepoems - @harry_orme and @matthewaplin put together a stunning set last night at @headingleyheart . Regarding our set, I tried playing a looper song without plugging in my loop pedal which is a first but I think @mattiesim and I came out the other side unscathed (a rare treat having @matthewaplin join us for one song too)! Thanks to Heart for having us back and for the great audience who filled the place inspite of the pissing rain.

Always a pleasure to have such great musicians at Heart. The weather was awful which may have kept a few people indoors. For those who braved the storms, particularly those poor drenched souls on bikes, it was all well worth it. Thanks everyone.
It's been a real pleasure having @mattiesim join us on lapsteel for the last couple of band shows after poaching him from the @thehootenannyleeds band (!) and I'm delighted to announce that he is joining me for a special duo performance tomorrow evening at @headingleyheart . Just got to decide a setlist now!! @peoplepoems will also be in duo form with @matthewaplin on upright piano - they were absolutely incredible last time. Music starts at 8pm prompt!! 📸Steve Kirman

Let's do this again sometime. Thanks to Steve Kirman for first pic and @andyarmi for the rest. #standing #sitting #crouching #positions #livemusic #otleymusic @ The Rookery Bar & Venue ...
