Hello and Happy New Year to Everyone, I hope this finds you well.  I have been very pleased and flattered by the positive response to Another Fine Mess. This was exemplified by the review from Folk North West. Copies of the Album are still available, so please email if you would like to purchase a copy.  Also very pleased to see the finished album from Paul Goulding, which looks and sounds excellent.  Looking forward to the music day at the Unicorn Inn, Ambleside on the 24th Feb.  A day of different talents gathered by Earthwoode Music to raise money for Fix the Fells. Details of specific times to follow in due course.

Keep safe and hope to see you on the 24th.  Nick 15/1/24

Hello Hello 

Hello All, very pleased to announce that the new album is finally finished!  Huge thanks to all involved, including the musicians and singers, especially Sean Marshall & the much missed Chris Hunter.  Thank you too to Val Greeley and Patrick Corrigan for the brilliant artwork and to Dan Marshall of Protect the Moose and Shan Porter from Ditto Solutions for setting it up and to Clone Media for the wonderful reproduction, On 2nd Sept, there is small gathering to celebrate the album and remember Chris.  I'm very pleased that the Throwbacks will be there to help make it a great night.

If you would like a copy of the album, or would like to attend on the 2nd, please contact me at  Stay safe.  Nick 15/8/23

Hello All, firstly apologies for a lack of communication for a while, a numbers of reasons, but ultimately age and incompetence are fairly prominent.  Sad to report the death of my long time friend and musical partner for more years than I care to mention, Chris Hunter.  However, pleased to announce some gigs coming up; firstly at the APC fund raiser on 7th May, with Mike Willoughby, Laura Firth, Close Quarters and Paul Goulding. Then on June 10th, in concert with Earthwoode Music, also appearing are Laura Firth & Jim Smith.  At the end of August/ beginning of |Sept, another gig to launch the new album, Another Fine Mess, with various guests, including the Throwbacks.  I am also pleased to have been invited back to Croydon Folk Club in September.

On the recording front, finished producing Close Quarters CD, which seems to have , rightly, been well received. Working on producing an album with Paul Goulding at present, which has been good.  My new album is nearly finished, just going through the final stages of remixing and editing.  Pleased to say that I have found someone to do the artwork, Shan Porter, an Ambleside resident no less.  It would be great to see you if you can make any of the gigs.  Stay safe.  Nick May 11/5/23

Hello All, pleased to announce some gigs coming up; firstly with The Throwbacks at a private party on 28th May.  It will be so good to meet up and play again.  Thanks to all for making such a huge effort.  best wishes to Desi & family who can't make it and thanks to Sean for deputising.  I have been asked to play at an APC concert on Sunday 5th June starting at 2pm, I should be on about 3pm.  Finally the next Earthwoode Music Presents...concert is on Friday 3rd June at APC, featuring the wonderful Jez Lowe and the talented Ethan Thomas.  It would be great to see you at the gigs if you can make.  Keep supporting live music!

Nearly finished to mixing, mastering and production of Close Quarters CD, should be done in a couple of weeks. The hopefully i can put together the next album as the song have been written and recorded, so watch this space.  Stay safe and positive.  Nick May 25/5/22
